Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for OTCPK:DLEX.Y using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Datalex 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.

DLEX.Y Health

 How is Datalex'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 Datalex's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Datalex is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Datalex's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Datalex'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 covered by short term assets, assets are 62.6x 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.
