There is certain percentage return that Investor expects to earn from its Investment  , say Investor wants to earn 20% return on Investment per year, 25% return on Investment per year. 

The required Future Value of Investment = 100*(1.20) for 5th Year 

if you calculate the Future Value this Comes out at = 248.83 at 20% and 305.18 at 25% 

Valuation of Company at this time
