Calculate pre-tax roi return on investment, Financial Accounting

Shannon Kampa is in talks with Resul Ozbayrak Leaseco, a leasing company, to rent store space for new stores that Shannon is considering adding to her high-end natural foods chain. Leaseco would build the stores and lease them to Shannon. For a typical store, Shannon will need to invest $1million of equity funds, all of which goes to finance working capital needs. She estimates that she will earn on average an operating profit of $200,000 per year, before rent payments, but recognizes that the actual operating profits could be higher or lower than that depending on environmental factors she cannot control. Leaseco estimates that they will also have a very long term investment of about $1million in building each store and offers Shannon the following two options: 1) pay a fixed rent of $90,000 per year or 2) pay a variable rent equal to half the operating profits.

Answer the following questions:

 (a)    Calculate Shannon's pre-tax ROI (return on investment, measured as pre-tax operating profits, after deducting rents, divided by her investment of $1 million) under the two rental options for each of the following 3 scenarios that might occur in the first year of operation:

 i) Good news: Operating profits are $300,000 per year,

ii) Medium news: Operating profits are $200,000 per year.

iii) Bad news: Operating profits are $100,000 per year.

(d)   Do you see a parallel between this discussion and the impact of increased leverage (from debt financing) on the risk of equity? If so, what is the link?
