Your friend has a business she wants you to value. The business will not generate any money for the next three years, but in the fourth year it will start turning a profit and will make a payment (the first payment) of $150,000 to the owners at the end of the fourth year. Your friend expects to be able to grow the business, and the payments made to the owners, by 4% per year forever, and the owners will receive their payments at year end. If the appropriate discount rate is 14%, what is the value of the business today?
