    To calculate PV of perpetuity cash inflow from year 5
    2,308,000 x 1·03 x (1 – 0·3))/0·12
    But it seems we should use
    2308*1,03*(1-0,3)/(0,12-0,03)
    isn’t it?

    I think the formula for perpetuity is: cf per annum/ interest rate. Hence you only divide it by the interest rate

    Yes, it is. But when there is a constant growth of 3%? Is it like dividend growth model? The whole PAT may be used to pay dividends, so it looks similar to DGM for me. May be I don’t understand something.

    I don’t understand perpetuity either. I just hope it doesn’t come up. ATM I’m concentrating on the theory

    2,308,000is the CF of year 4
    Then 2,308,000X1.03 is the CF of year 5, the perpetuity is from the year 5 onwards.
    (1-0.3) is the after tax rate.

    Any problems?

    Problem in denominator. Why it is 0,12 but not 0,12-0,03
