INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of Enghouse Systems to its discounted cash flow analysis.value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

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

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Enghouse Systems 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.

We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

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

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.
  • Enghouse Systems has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Enghouse Systems used its assets more efficiently than the US Software industry average last year based on Return on Assets.

  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.

EGHS.F Health

 How is Enghouse Systems'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 Enghouse Systems's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Enghouse Systems is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Enghouse Systems's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Enghouse Systems'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 359.4x 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.
