The initial outlay (today) of building the store is $300 million
Assume the store will have a life of 3 years and will generate revenues of $160 million per year over the 3 years (with the first cash flow at the end of year 1). After that the store will be closed and the land returned to Adelaide Council.
The total annual costs of the store will be 10% of the revenues from the store and will continue for 3 years
Depreciation per year will be $15 million per year for three years
Assume that Apple can sell the store at the end of 3 years' time for $100 million before tax

All values are in AUD Assume the tax rate is 30% over the 3 years.
