Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis: 

An Return on Investment (ROI) analysis was developed based on a 16 year projection of incremental revenues, incremental expenses, estimated startup costs and estimated facility cots.  The analysis assumes that in year one there will be 40 incremental students, year two there will be 60 incremental students, year three there will be 80 incremental students and years four and beyond the incremental students will plateau at 96.  The original model derived a ROI of 15.1%.   However, to appropriately account for risk, sensitivity factors were built into the model and are summarized below. 

If revenues are overstated by 10%

ROI falls to 12.1%

If revenues are overstated by 20%

ROI falls to 8.9%

 

 

If expenses are understated by 10%

ROI falls to 14.0%

If expenses are understated by 20%

ROI falls to 12.9%
