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 14.1%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 7.3%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 14.1%, 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 190 177
2023 217 188
2024 247 200
2025 282 213
2026 322 227
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 6210 million. This corresponds to a present value of 4070 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 1010 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 5080 million.

There are presently 60.6 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 83.79.
