Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for OTCPK:KARB.F using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Karo Pharma 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.
  • Karo Pharma has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Karo Pharma used its assets less efficiently than the US Biotechs industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Karo Pharma has become profitable over the past 3 years. This is considered to be a significant improvement in its use of capital (Return on Capital Employed).

Past performance checks
We assess Karo Pharma'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 Biotechs 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.
Karo Pharma has a total score of 4/6, see the detailed checks below.

Health

 How is Karo Pharma'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 Karo Pharma's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Karo Pharma's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Karo Pharma's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Karo Pharma'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 0.3x 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.
