We consider a class of impulse control problems for general underlying strong Markov processes on the real line, which allows for an explicit solution. The optimal impulse times are shown to be of a threshold type and the optimal threshold is characterised as a solution of a (typically nonlinear) equation. The main ingredient we use is a representation result for excessive functions in terms of expected suprema.
