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 -4.6%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 3.4%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of -4.6%, 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)
2023 202 195
2024 193 180
2025 184 166
2026 175 153
2027 167 141
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 5020 million. This corresponds to a present value of 4100 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 836 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4930 million.

There are presently 318.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 15.52.
