The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Huber+Suhner is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

HUBN Health

 How is Huber+Suhner'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 Huber+Suhner's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth

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.
