You have recently learned that the company where you work is being sold for $275,000. The company’s income statement indicates current profits of $10,000 which have yet to be paid out as dividends. Assuming the company will remain a “growing concern” into the infinite future and that the interest rate will remain constant at 10%, at what constant rate does the owner believe the profits will grow? Does this seem reasonable?
