Larkin Laminating, Inc. is considering an investment that will cost $357,000. The investment produces no cash flows for the first year. In the second year, the cash inflow is $57,000. This inflow will increase to $198,000 and then $218,000 for the following two years, respectively, before ceasing permanently. The firm requires a 11.5 percent rate of return and has a required discounted payback period of three years. Should the project be accepted?

 

I got this far with the question but am uncertain if they should proceed with payback - I thought it should be reject - any thoughts or advice?
