DPS1 â€“ DPS0 = ADJ* [POR*EPS1 â€“ DPS0]

DPS1 â€“ 1 = 0.75* [0.25*8 â€“ 1]

DPS1 = 0.75* [0.25*8 â€“ 1] + 1

DPS1 = 1.75 ===> year 1 DPS

DPS2 â€“ DPS1 = ADJ* [POR*EPS2 â€“ DPS1]

DPS2 â€“ 1.75 = 0.75* [0.25*8 â€“ 1.75]

DPS2 =1.94 ===> year 2 DPS

DPS3 â€“DPS2 = ADJ* [POR*EPS3 â€“ DPS2]

DPS3 â€“ 1.94 = 0.75* [0.25*8 â€“ 1.94]

DPS3 =1.99 ===> year 3 DPS
