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 20.3%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 9.3%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 20.3%, 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 358 327
2024 430 360
2025 518 396
2026 622 436
2027 749 480
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 10400 million. This corresponds to a present value of 6120 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 2000 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 8120 million.

There are presently 27.4 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 296.51.
