Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for NYSE:LL using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Lumber Liquidators Holdings 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.
