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 11.2%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 8.9%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 11.2%, 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 82.7 75.9
2023 91.9 77.5
2024 102 79.2
2025 114 80.9
2026 126 82.6
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 1870 million. This corresponds to a present value of 1120 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 396 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 1520 million.

There are presently 29.3 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 51.92.
