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 1.2%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 6.8%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 1.2%, 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 109 102
2023 111 97.1
2024 112 92.0
2025 113 87.2
2026 115 82.6
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 2440 million. This corresponds to a present value of 1650 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 461 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 2110 million.

There are presently 157.0 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 13.46.
