Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NYSE:GHL using Excess Returns Model Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Greenhill is arrived at using the Excess Return Model. This approach is used for finance firms where free cash flow is difficult to estimate.

In the Excess Return Model the value of a firm can be written as the sum of capital invested currently in the firm and the present value of excess returns that the firm expects to make in the future.

The model is sensitive to the Return on Equity of the company versus the Cost of Equity, how these are calculated is detailed below the main calculation.

Note the calculations below are per share.

See our documentation to learn about this calculation.

NYSE:GHL Value of Excess Returns
Calculation Result
Excess Returns = (Stable Return on equity – Cost of equity) (Book Value of Equity per share)
= (47.7% – 9.23%) * $7.11)
$2.74
Terminal Value of Excess Returns = Excess Returns / (Cost of Equity - Expected Growth Rate)
= $2.74 / (9.23% - 2.73%)
$42.11
Value of Equity = Book Value per share + Terminal Value of Excess Returns
= $7.11 + $42.11

Share price is $20.96 vs Future cash flow value of $49.22
Current Discount Checks

  • Greenhill's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Greenhill's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a substantial discount (> 40%).
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET

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

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.
  • Whilst Greenhill made outstanding use of shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 40%), this is metric is skewed due to its high level of debt.
  • Greenhill used its assets more efficiently than the US Capital Markets industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Unable to establish if Greenhill improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) due to insufficient past data.

Past performance checks
We assess Greenhill'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 Capital Markets 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.
Greenhill has a total score of 1/6, see the detailed checks below.

GHL Health

 How is Greenhill'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 Greenhill's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Greenhill is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Greenhill's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Greenhill'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 not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.7x 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.
