 Is CentralNic Group 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 CentralNic Group 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 AIM:CNIC using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for CentralNic Group 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.

Current Discount Checks
For CentralNic Group to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • CentralNic Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • CentralNic Group's share price is below the future cash flow value, and 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.

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

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

Health

 How is CentralNic Group'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 CentralNic Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • CentralNic Group's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • CentralNic Group's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of CentralNic Group'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 1.5x 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.
