The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Nathan's Famous is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method.

NFA Health

 How is Nathan's Famous'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 Nathan's Famous's finances.

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

  • Nathan's Famous's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.

Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Nathan's Famous has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not covered by short term assets.
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.
