Formula: D1 = ADJ {POR {EPS1} - D0}+ D0

D1 = 0.75 {0.25 x \$8.00 - \$1.00} + \$1.00  \$1.75   D2 = 0.75 {0.25 x \$8.00 - \$1.75} + \$1.75  \$1.94
D3 = 0.75 {0.25 x \$8.00 - \$1.94} + \$1.94  \$1.985 D4 = 0.75 {0.25 x \$8.00 - \$1.98} + \$1.98  \$2.00
D5 = 0.75 {0.25 x \$8.00 - \$2.00} + \$2.00  \$2.00

B2.

a. Over a five-year period, the firm could achieve maximum overall payout ratio without triggering any securities issue.

Discretionary Cash Flow = {\$50.00 + \$70.00 + \$60.00 + \$20.00 + \$15.00}  \$215.00
Earnings = {\$100.00 + \$125.00 + \$150.00 + \$120.00 + \$140.00}  \$635.00
Maximum Payout Ratio = ({\$215.00 / \$635.00}  33.9%

b. Discretionary cash flow for years 1 through 5 would be:

D1 = \$35.00 / 20  \$1.75 D2 = \$39.00 / 20  \$1.95
D3 = \$43.00 / 20  \$2.15 D4 = \$48.00 / 20  \$2.40
D5 = \$50.00 / 20  \$2.50

A2.

1. N = 40   R =     PV = -{\$50.00 - \$1.00} = -\$49.00
PMT = 9% / 2 x \$50.00 = \$2.25
FV = \$50.00
R = 4.61%
APY = {1 + 0.0461}2 -1 = 9.43%

2. N = 20   R =     PV = -{\$50.00 - \$0.50} = -\$49.50
PMT = 9.25% x \$50 = \$4.625
FV = \$50.00
R = 9.36%
APY = 9.36%

Second choice has a lower APY.
