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 21.1%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 8.7%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 21.1%, 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)
2023 188 173
2024 227 192
2025 275 214
2026 333 238
2027 403 266
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 6120 million. This corresponds to a present value of 3710 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 1080 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4790 million.

There are presently 11.7 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 409.45.
