    Regional Software has made a bundle selling spreadsheet software and has begun paying cash dividends.

Regional paid $1.00 per share in dividends last year. It will earn at least $8.00 per share this year and each year in the foreseeable future. Use the dividend adjustment model to calculate projected dividends per share for this year and the next four.
