 Is SQLI 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
Here we compare the current share price of SQLI to its discounted cash flow analysis.value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for ENXTPA:SQI using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for SQLI is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We use analyst's estimates of cash flows going forward 5 years for the 1st stage, the 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Current Discount Checks
For SQLI to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • SQLI's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • SQLI's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a substantial discount (< 40%).
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.

Past Performance

  How has SQLI performed over the past 5 years?

The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
Past earnings growth

  • SQLI's year on year earnings growth rate was negative over the past 5 years and the most recent earnings are below average.
  • SQLI's 1-year earnings growth is negative, it can't be compared to the 5-year average.

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.
  • SQLI has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • SQLI used its assets less efficiently than the FR IT industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • SQLI's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess SQLI's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the IT industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.
SQLI has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

Health

 How is SQLI'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 SQLI's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • SQLI is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • SQLI's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of SQLI'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.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 2.7x 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.
