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 41.7%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 6.7%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 41.7%, 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 67.8 63.6
2023 96.1 84.4
2024 136 112
2025 193 149
2026 273 198
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 5920 million. This corresponds to a present value of 4010 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 606 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4620 million.

There are presently 4.92 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 939.16.
