Discounted (@ 11.95%)
Present value of next 5 years cash flows:
Terminal Value = FCF2022 × (1 + g) ÷ (Discount Rate – g)
Terminal Value = $1,000 × (1 + 2.47%) ÷ (11.95% – 2.47%)
Terminal value based on the Perpetuity Method where growth (g) =
Present value of terminal value:
Equity Value (Total value) = Present value of next 5 years cash flows +
$10,304 = $4,161 + $6,143
Value = Total value / Shares Outstanding ($10,304 / 622)Discount to Share Price
Value per share (USD): $16.58
Current discount (share price of $21.06): -27.03%
The discount rate, or required rate of return, is estimated by calculating the Cost of Equity.
Discount rate = Cost of Equity = Risk Free Rate + (Levered Beta * Equity Risk Premium)
Discount rate = 11.95% = 2.47% + (1.26 * 7.53%)
The Levered Beta is the Unlevered Beta adjusted for financial leverage. It is limited to 0.8 to 2.0 (practical range for a stable firm). Note the market value of equity is used not the book value ($13,089,603,926).
Levered Beta = Unlevered beta (1 + (1- tax rate) (Debt/Equity))
1.26 = 0.917 (1 + (1- 2.7%) (38.4%))
Levered Beta used in calculation = 1.26
