Question 1 DBK Bank paid out \$ 80 million in dividends on net income of \$100 million in the most recent year. The book value of equity for the firm is \$800 million. Assuming that the bank maintains its current payout ratio and return on equity in perpetuity, what is the expected growth in earnings per share in perpetuity? 8% 2% 5% 2.5% None of the above
Solution d. 2.5%. The payout ratio is 80% (80/100) and the return on equity is 12.5% (100/800). The expected growth rate in earnings per share = (1- Payout ratio) (Return on equity) = (1-.8) (.125) = 2.5%.
