Solution :
 
As per the equation 18.1,
DPS₁
-
DPS₀ = ADJ [
 
POR (EPS₁)
-
DPS₀]
 
where, DPS₁ = Dividend per share next year
 
DPS₀ = Current dividend per share
 ADJ = Adjustment FactorPOR = Payout ratio
EPS₁ = Earnings per share next year
 
EPS₀ = Current EPS
 So, DPSn -DPS(n-1) = ADJ [ POR (EPS n) -DPS(n-1)]
Or, DPS n = ADJ [ POR (EPS n) -DPS(n-1)]+DPS(n-1)
Given,
DPS₀ =
$ 1.00ADJ = 0.74POR = 0.25
EPS₁ =
$ 8.00
EPS₂ =
$ 8.00
EPS₃ =
$ 8.00
EPS₄ =
$ 8.00
