# A company faces three choices with regard to a potential project they

A company faces three choices with regard to a potential project they are considering with a partner company. They can choose to invest £150 million and this will entitle them to 85% of any profits made. Alternatively they could invest £75 million, but this would only entitle them to 40% of any profits made. In either case if a negative profit (loss) is made the company has to fund the appropriate percentage (85% and 40%) of the loss. Of course the company could choose not to invest at all.
