Holt Enterprises recently paid a dividend, D0, of \$2.00. It expects to have nonconstant growth of 22% for 2 years followed by a constant rate of 3% thereafter. The firm's required return is 17%.

1. How far away is the horizon date?
1. The terminal, or horizon, date is the date when the growth rate becomes constant. This occurs at the beginning of Year 2.
2. The terminal, or horizon, date is the date when the growth rate becomes constant. This occurs at the end of Year 2.
3. The terminal, or horizon, date is infinity since common stocks do not have a maturity date.
4. The terminal, or horizon, date is Year 0 since the value of a common stock is the present value of all future expected dividends at time zero.
5. The terminal, or horizon, date is the date when the growth rate becomes nonconstant. This occurs at time zero.

Dividend just paid (D0) = \$2.00

Growth rate for 2 years(g) = 22%

Growth rate thereafter(g1) = 3%

Required rate of Return(Ke) = 17%

D1 = D0(1+g) =\$2.00(1+0.22)

= \$2.44

D2 = D1(1+g) = \$2.44*(1+0.22)

= \$2.9768

a). Horizon date is the date when the Growth rate becomes Constant. It occurs at the end of year 2.

Hence, option II

b). Calculating the Firm's Horizon value:-

So, Horizon Value is \$21.90

b). Calculating the Firm's Intrinsic Value:-

Price = \$2.085 + \$2.175 + \$15.998

Price = \$20.26

So, Firm's intrinsic Value = \$20.26
