INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of Multi-Color 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 NasdaqGS:LABL using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Multi-Color 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 Multi-Color to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.

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

  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)

LABL Health

 How is Multi-Color'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 Multi-Color's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Multi-Color is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Multi-Color's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Multi-Color'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.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.4x 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.
