MP1 Value

 Is Megaport undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Megaport. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is A$6.56.
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Megaport's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Past earnings growth
Below we compare Megaport's growth in the last year to its industry (IT).
Past Earnings growth analysis
We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.
  • Megaport does not make a profit and there is insufficient past data to establish if their 5 year on year earnings growth rate was positive.
  • Unable to compare Megaport's 1-year earnings growth to the 5-year average as it is not currently profitable.

Performance last year
We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • It is difficult to establish if Megaport has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Megaport has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the AU IT industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Megaport improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

MP1 Health

 How is Megaport's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Megaport's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Megaport is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Megaport's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Megaport's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 2382.9x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
