## Dividend Discount Model (DDM)

2019 Calculations

1 Retention rate = (Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders – Dividends declared) ÷ Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders
= (2,805895) ÷ 2,805 = 0.68

2 Profit margin = 100 × Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders ÷ Sales
= 100 × 2,805 ÷ 9,740 = 28.80%

3 Asset turnover = Sales ÷ Total assets
= 9,740 ÷ 39,974 = 0.24

4 Financial leverage = Total assets ÷ Total Newmont stockholders’ equity
= 39,974 ÷ 21,420 = 1.87

5 g = Retention rate × Profit margin × Asset turnover × Financial leverage
= 0.52 × 5.13% × 0.32 × 1.93 = 1.63%

#### Dividend growth rate (g) implied by Gordon growth model

g = 100 × (P0 × rD0) ÷ (P0 + D0)
= 100 × (\$57.78 × 3.15%\$0.56) ÷ (\$57.78 + \$0.56) = 2.16%

where:
P0 = current price of share of Newmont Corp.’s common stock
D0 = the last year dividends per share of Newmont Corp.’s common stock
r = required rate of return on Newmont Corp.’s common stock

Year Value gt
1 g1 1.63%
2 g2 1.76%
3 g3 1.90%
4 g4 2.03%
5 and thereafter g5 2.16%

where:
g1 is implied by PRAT model
g5 is implied by Gordon growth model
g2, g3 and g4 are calculated using linear interpoltion between g1 and g5

Calculations

g2 = g1 + (g5g1) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 1.63% + (2.16%1.63%) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 1.76%

g3 = g1 + (g5g1) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 1.63% + (2.16%1.63%) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 1.90%

g4 = g1 + (g5g1) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 1.63% + (2.16%1.63%) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 2.03%
