How do we calculate IRR if I have an investment that allows me to buy into 10% of a company @1m and the first year is a negative cash flow of 200,000 but the subsequent years till year 10 is a positive cash flow of 300,000.

  • $\begingroup$ There isn't really much similar solutions on the web pertaining to my question as all of the solutions provided are taking into consideration that the initial investment would be buying 100% of the the company and thus its straightforward calculating the IRR even with the different type of cash flow $\endgroup$ – Bobby Apr 26 '16 at 5:32
