A corporation is trying to decide whether or not to buy the patent for a product designed by another company. The decision to buy means an initial investment of \$8 million and the demand for the product is not known. If demand is light, the company expects a return of \$1.3 million each year for 3 years (assume no cost/revenue afterward). If the demand is moderate the return will be \$2.5 million each year for 4 years and a high demand means a return of \$4 million each year for 4 years (all figures represent after-tax values).
