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 13.7%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 6.4%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 13.7%, 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 133 125
2023 151 134
2024 172 143
2025 196 153
2026 223 163
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 5200 million. This corresponds to a present value of 3590 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 718 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4310 million.

There are presently 48.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 89.74.
