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 8.6%.

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 8.6%, 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)
2024 184 171
2025 200 174
2026 217 176
2027 236 178
2028 256 180
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 4920 million. This corresponds to a present value of 3230 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 878 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4100 million.

There are presently 35.6 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 115.27.
