Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for SEHK:1373 using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for International Housewares Retail 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.

The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.
