The purpose of this report is to perform a comparative analysis of the profitability of two potential equity investments: Auto Wash Bot Ltd. (AWBL) and Popeye’s Muscle Wash Ltd. (PMWL). AWBL is selling 50% ownership for $100,000 in efforts to pursue expansion in the mobile device industry, and PMWL is selling 100% of its business for $100,000 to pursue retirement.

Reviewing AWBL’s performance in fiscal year 2015, the percentage of sales revenue that ended up as profit was as follows:
Net Income / Sales Revenue = $4,400 / $375,000 = - 0.0117

Alternatively, PMWL’s percentage of revenue ending as profit in fiscal year 2015 was as follows:
Net Income / Sales Revenue = $45,862 / $375,000...
