Slee, I can't be too sure. What's your take?

I haven't digested all your analysis yet, but I think it is intriguing. One fly in the ointment is that, so far, the acquisitions are growing at approximately 0%, but I agree that they likely will resume growing at some point.

How much do your calculations change if you do not assume perpetual growth, but instead assume grwoth of X% for 10 years (for example), followed by perpetual growth at a lower rate (say 5% or 3%)?
