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 39.3%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 4.3%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 39.3%, 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 109 105
2024 152 140
2025 212 187
2026 295 250
2027 411 334
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 12300 million. This corresponds to a present value of 9600 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 1020 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 10600 million.

There are presently 55.2 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 192.34.
