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 19.3%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 7.5%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 19.3%, 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 343 319
2024 410 354
2025 489 393
2026 584 436
2027 697 484
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 12800 million. This corresponds to a present value of 8280 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 1990 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 10300 million.

There are presently 39.3 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 261.37.
