Analysis Details
Growth Rate Projection

An exponential growth model was fit to the past cash flow data, giving more weight to more recent years. This model determined a growth rate estimate of -12.8%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 10.5%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of -12.8%, the cash flows for the next 5 years are projected.

The present value of each year's flow is adjusted to present value using the discount rate.

Year Future flow (million) Present value (million)
2022 104 93.7
2023 90.3 73.9
2024 78.7 58.3
2025 68.6 46.0
2026 59.9 36.3
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 718 million. This corresponds to a present value of 395 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 308 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 703 million.

There are presently 117.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 6.0.
