Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for AIM:WEY using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Wey Education 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.

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 Wey Education has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Wey Education has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the Europe Consumer Services industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Wey Education improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

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.
