Till now, we have been discussing the theories, which believe in the relevance of paying dividends. Now we will turn attention to the other side where Miller & Modigliani (MM) who advanced their view that the value of the firm depends solely on its earnings power and is not influenced by the manner in which they are split...

And this led to the dividend relevance doctrine which was supported by Gordon (1962 and 1963) and Walter (1963).

Model conclusions about dividend policy are thus similar to that of Walter’s Model.
This similarly is due to the similarities of assumptions that underline both models. Thus Gordon model suffer from the same limitation as the Walter model.
