The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for
is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value. We use
analyst's estimates of cash flows going forward 5 years.

Discounted (@ 9.64%)
Present value of next 5 years cash flows:
Terminal Value = FCF2021 × (1 + g) ÷ (Discount Rate – g)
Terminal Value = $856 × (1 + 2.47%) ÷ (9.64% – 2.47%)
Terminal value based on the Perpetuity Method where growth (g) =
Present value of terminal value:
Equity Value (Total value) = Present value of next 5 years cash flows +
$6,417 = $-1,305 + $7,722
Value = Total value / Shares Outstanding ($6,417 / 1,204)Discount to Share Price
Value per share:
Current discount (share price of $12.34): -131.58%
The discount rate, or required rate of return, is estimated by calculating the Cost of Equity.
Discount rate = Cost of Equity = Risk Free Rate + (Levered Beta * Equity Risk Premium)
Discount rate = 9.64% = 2.47% + (0.952 * 7.53%)
The Levered Beta is the Unlevered Beta adjusted for financial leverage. It is limited to 0.8 to 2.0 (practical range for a stable firm). Note the market value of equity is used not the book value ($14,860,580,690).
Levered Beta = Unlevered beta (1 + (1- tax rate) (Debt/Equity))
0.952 = 0.951 (1 + (1- 30%) (0.11%))
Levered Beta used in calculation = 0.952
