Considering the financial state of the company the company has recorded a good amount of profit in the last 3 financial years for 2017 to 2019. It is further require to analyze the investment needs of the company in order to have a venture with the recycle shoes and then assessing the net cash flows that will be generated by the company if the investment is undertaken. The company will require obtaining financing facility amounting to $10,000,000, which can be financed, from internally generated funds or by obtaining loan from bank at annual interest rate of 2%.

The assessment of the breakeven point is necessary if the company has a venture with the greenery shoes (Fermanian and Vigneron 2015). The table below depicts the Breakeven point for the company if the venture is undertaken and is financed by the internally generated funds:

ParticularsYear 1Year 2Year 3Year 4Year 5

Sales 80,00,000  1,20,00,000  1,60,00,000  2,00,00,000  2,40,00,000

Contribution 40,00,000  60,00,000  80,00,000  1,00,00,000  1,20,00,000

Break even (units) 25,000     

The selling price of the recycling shoes shall be $80 p.u., the variable cost is estimated to be at $40 p.u. And the fixed cost comprised of $10,00,000, which is mainly the deprication expenses. In this case the breakeven shall be achieved by the company at 25000 units i.e. if the company sells the 25000 units of the new venture recycle shoes, it shall be at the state wherein there will be no profit or loss derived by the company. If the company is unable to sell these number of units than it shall incur loss (Morano and Tajani 2017). Hence, it is evident for the company to sell 25000 units if the venture is financed by the internally generated funds.

If the venture is financed from the externally generated funds i.e. obtaining loan from the bank @2%, the breakeven point for the company shall be as follows:

Sales 80,00,000  1,20,00,000  1,60,00,000  2,00,00,000  2,40,00,000 
Variable cost @40 40,00,000  60,00,000  80,00,000  1,00,00,000  1,20,00,000 
Contribution 40,00,000  60,00,000  80,00,000  1,00,00,000  1,20,00,000

Profit 10,00,000  40,00,000  60,00,000  80,00,000  1,00,00,000 
Break even (units) 75,000     

The product shall be sold at $80 p.u. And the variable cost will not be impacted if the venture is financed from the external source of funds, however, there shall be an increase in the fixed cost which shall raise the breakeven point of the company to 75,000 units. Now, the company is require to sell at least 75,000 units of the recycle shows if it wants to achieve the breakeven. However, still the profit is expected by the venture.

If the venture is opted by the company, the overall cash flows of the company Nike shall be as follows:

Cash flows46,78,33346,89,83347,01,33347,12,83347,24,333
