The results of IRR are not exact since we just calculate with the random number for the trial value. However, during the process of calculating, I have chosen the closest approximation to maintain and improve the reliability factors. After comparing all the values of IRR, Project C has the highest number which is 26. 26%. Therefore, Co-op Supermarket should better invest in project C to make highest IRR and the profit for the company. 1. Other Financial tools
In real situations, in order to have the most effective plan and the most benefit, an organization must consider many different financial tools in order to invest in the right time and at the right business, not just only NPV and IRR. There are some other financial tools that can be used in order to make a fulfill decision of investment of the company. First, the Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR) can be used to analyze the investment of the company. It is said to reflect the profitability of a project or investment more realistically than an IRR.
The MIRR is used extensively in real estate financial analysis due to the nature and timing of cash flows and investments for real estate investments (Financial Modeling Guide, 2010). Moreover, the benefit-cost ratio B/C is the ratio of the present value of gross benefit to the present value of gross cost (Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, 1980). In order to choose the most effective investment plan for the organization, the ratio between B/C should be greater of at least equal.

Relating to the report, all the techniques of forecasting future sales are provided to the company in order to compare and choose the closest and most reliable value for the business. That may help the company to control and develop the business in the future.
