Abstract: We consider a finite horizon optimal stopping problem. The value of the underlying process grows exponentially until a Poisson process jumps for the first time, at which the processes jumps to zero and stays there forever. As applications of this model we consider valuing real options and options written on the stock of a start-up company.
