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 -8.0%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 5.0%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of -8.0%, 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 (billion) Present value (billion)
2022 1.3 1.24
2023 1.2 1.09
2024 1.1 0.953
2025 1.02 0.835
2026 0.934 0.732
Terminal Value

Assuming the company was sold after the projection period at an exit multiple of 30, the terminal value of the company would be 28.0 billion. This corresponds to a present value of 20.9 billion.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 4.85 billion. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 25.8 billion.

There are presently 498.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 51.69.
