Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for AMEX:BKTI using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for BK Technologies 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.
  • It is difficult to establish if BK Technologies has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if BK Technologies has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the US Communications industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if BK Technologies improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

Health

 How is BK Technologies'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 BK Technologies's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • BK Technologies is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • BK Technologies's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of BK Technologies'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.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • BK Technologies has no debt, it does not need to be covered by short term assets.
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.
