Blazer’s Growth BLAZER TELECOM s has perpetual earnings before interest and taxes of $400 for the next three years, after which the earnings may grow indefinitely. The corporate tax rate is 40%. BLAZER uses a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.75. The debt is priced to yield the risk-free rate of interest. BLAZER's depreciation expenses are not tax deductible and just offset capital expenditures in each year, and changes in working capital are zero. BLAZER has a 100% payout policy. The risk-free interest rate is 8% and the market premium (market rate less the risk-free rate) is 8.5%.
