Holt Enterprises recently paid a dividend, D_{0}, of $1.25. It expects to have nonconstant growth of 22% for 2 years followed by a constant rate of 5% thereafter. The firm's required return is 14%.

 Dividend just paid (D0) = $1.25
Growth rate for 2 years(g) = 22%
Growth rate thereafter(g1) = 5%
Required rate of Return(Ke) = 14%
D1 = D0(1+g) =$1.25(1+0.22)
= $1.525
D2 = D1(1+g) = $1.525*(1+0.22)
= $1.8605
a). Horizon date is the date when the Growth rate becomes Constant. It occurs at the end of year 2.
Hence, option IV
b). Calculating the Firm's Horizon value:
HV = $21.7058
So, Horizon Value is $21.71
b). Calculating the Firm's Intrinsic Value:
Price = $1.3377 + $1.4316 + $16.7019
Price = $19.47
So, Firm's intrinsic Value = $19.47
