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 14.9%.

Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

The calculated WACC is 9.2%. This value is used as the default discount rate.

Value of Future Flows

Assuming a growth rate of 14.9%, 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 250 229
2023 287 241
2024 330 253
2025 379 267
2026 436 280
Terminal Value

Assuming a growth rate after the projection years of 2.0%, the terminal value of the company would be 6160 million. This corresponds to a present value of 3630 million.

Intrinsic Value Per Share

The total present value of the projected cash flows is 1270 million. Adding in the terminal value gives a total present value of 4900 million.

There are presently 27.3 million outstanding shares, so the intrinsic value per share is 179.72.
