I Value

 Is Intelsat undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Intelsat is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Intelsat has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Intelsat. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is $21.78.
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
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 Intelsat's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • Intelsat has negative assets, we can't compare the value of its assets to the US Telecom industry average.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of I’s management and see if the CEO’s compensation is within a reasonable range, who is on the board and if insiders have been trading lately.
  2. When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the size of the opportunity, the company's ability to deliver and scale, and the strength of the team. While we are not analysing this type of data at the moment, if you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading through Intelsat's regulatory filings and announcements.

I Past Performance

  How has Intelsat performed over the past 5 years?

The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
Past earnings growth
Below we compare Intelsat's growth in the last year to its industry (Telecom).
Past Earnings growth analysis
We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.
  • Intelsat does not make a profit even though their year on year earnings growth rate was positive over the past 5 years.
  • Unable to compare Intelsat's 1-year earnings growth to the 5-year average as it is not currently profitable.
  • Unable to compare Intelsat's 1-year growth to the US Telecom industry average as it is not currently profitable.

*GAAP earnings excluding extraordinary items.

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 Intelsat has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • Intelsat used its assets less efficiently than the US Telecom industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • It is difficult to establish if Intelsat improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.
X
Past performance checks
We assess Intelsat's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Telecom industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  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.
Intelsat has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

I Health

 How is Intelsat'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 Intelsat's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Intelsat is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Intelsat's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Intelsat'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.
  • Intelsat has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not 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.

  • Intelsat has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets), this is a more serious situation compared with a high debt level.
  • Irrelevant to check if Intelsat's debt level has increased considering it has negative shareholder equity.
CASH RUNWAY ANALYSIS

For companies that have on average been loss making in the past we assess whether they have at least 1 year of cash runway.

  • Whilst loss making Intelsat has sufficient cash runway for more than 3 years if it maintains the current positive free cash flow level.
  • Whilst loss making Intelsat has sufficient cash runway for more than 3 years, even with free cash flow being positive and shrinking by -44% per year.

Financial health checks
We assess Intelsat's financial health by checking for:

  2. Are short term assets greater than long term liabilities? (1 check)
  3. Has the debt to equity ratio increased in the past 5 years? (1 check)

  7. Intelsat has a total score of 3/6, see the detailed checks below.
For companies that are loss making and have been so on average in the past we replace the last 2 checks with:
  1. Does cash and short term investments cover stable operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)
  2. Does cash and short term investments cover growing operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)

I Dividends

 What is Intelsat's current dividend yield, its reliability and sustainability?

Dividends are regular cash payments to you from the company, similar to a bank paying you interest on a savings account.
Annual Dividend Income
Dividend payments
0%
Current annual income from Intelsat dividends. Estimated to be 0% next year.
If you bought $2,000 of Intelsat shares you are expected to receive $0 in your first year as a dividend.
Dividend Amount
Here we look how much dividend is being paid, if any. Is it above what you can get in a savings account? It is up there with the best dividend paying companies?
  • Unable to evaluate Intelsat's dividend yield against the bottom 25% of dividend payers as the company has not reported any payouts.
  • Unable to evaluate Intelsat's dividend against the top 25% market benchmark as the company has not reported any payouts.
Annualized Historical and Future Dividends
It is important to see if the dividend for a company is stable, and not wildly increasing/decreasing each year. This graph shows you the historical rate to count toward your assessment of the stock.

We also check to see if the dividend has increased in the past 10 years.
