Hello,
Can some one explain what am I doing wrong in the question. I have written the equation to solve this question in the end:
Question: Castovan’s final assignment is to determine the intrinsic value of TTCI using both a singlestage and a multistage RI model. Selected data and assumptions for TTCI are presented in Exhibit 2.
Exhibit 2. Tantechi Ltd. (TTCI) Selected Financial Data and Assumptions
Book value per share€45.25
Market price per share€126.05
Constant longterm ROE12.00%
Constant longterm earnings growth rate4.50%
Cost of equity8.70%
For the multistage model, Castovan forecasts TTCI’s ROE to be higher than its longterm ROE for the first three years. Forecasted earnings per share and dividends per share for TTCI are presented in Exhibit 3. Starting in Year 4, Castovan forecasts TTCI’s ROE to revert to the constant longterm ROE of 12% annually. The terminal value is based on an assumption that residual income per share will be constant from Year 3 into perpetuity.
Exhibit 3. Tantechi Ltd. (TTCI) Forecasts of Earnings and Dividends
**Year 1****Year 2****Year 3**
Earnings per share (€)7.828.178.54
Dividends per share (€)1.461.531.59
Beckworth questions Castovan’s assumption regarding the implied persistence factor used in the multistage RI valuation. She tells Castovan that she believes that a persistence factor of 0.10 is appropriate for TTCI.
Question:
Based on Exhibits 2 and 3 and the multistage RI model, Castovan should estimate the intrinsic value of TTCI to be closest to:

€54.88.

€83.01.

€85.71.
Answer: I got Book Value as B0 = 45.25 , B1 = 51.61 B2 = 58.25 and B3 = 65.2
Then I did
Bo + Σ (EPS – rBt)/(1+r) + (ROE r)Bt4/r*(1+r)^4… assumed w(persistence as 1)
=45.25 +3.57 +3.11+2.7 + (0.120.087)65.2/(1.087)^4(0.087)
What am I doing wrong??
