1. Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Analysis Tutorial This presentation is to be used ONLY as a template for DCF Analysis presentations. In no way should it reflect a finished work.

2. Tutorial Objectives • Basic Underlying Principles • Time Value of Money • Present/Future Value • Opportunity Cost • What is a business worth? • What is Free Cash Flow? • Basics of DCF Analysis • Composition • Computation • Forecasting

3. Present Value • Time Value of Money: A dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow. • A dollar today can be invested to earn a rate of return or interest. • What is today’s dollar worth tomorrow (future value)? • What is tomorrow’s dollar worth today (present value)?

4. Time Value: Example • You are given \$5,000 and decide to invest it in the stock market for 10 years and expect an average annual rate of return of 10%. What is that \$5,000 worth 10 years from now?

5. What is a Business Worth? • A business is worth the present value of the expected future cash flows of the business. • A company's stock price is a reflection of the market's consensus expectation regarding the value of the equity in the business. Ex. Target Corp (TGT): \$60 Share Price x 858.89 Shares Outstanding (mm) = \$51,533 Market Capitalization or Market Value of Equity • Is the market always right?

6. Capital Budgeting • The process of determining how a firm should allocate scarce resources to available long term investment opportunities • Decisions whether a company should undertake a given project • Goal: Increase (Maximize) shareholder wealth • One capital Budgeting tool is NPV

7. Discount Rate • The interest rate at which you discount expected future cash flows to the present • Efficient Markets Hypothesis (EMH) • Finance theory which states that all stock market prices at any given time reflect the accurate present value of the future cash flows of a business • Assumes market as a whole has rational expectations and is always right • Uses Capital Assets Pricing Model (CAPM) to establish the theoretical 'cost' of equity

8. Discount Rate • EMH uses Beta as a measure of risk by quantifying the stock's volatility (up and down movements) relative to the market. • Since the stock price reflects the PV of future cash flows, the more volatile the stock price, the more uncertain the future performance of the business. • This 'extra risk' is reflected in a higher Cost of Equity. (Risk/Return) Cost of Equity = Rf + B * (Mkt – Rf)

9. Discount Rate • The Opportunity Cost of Money – • Also known as the Hurdle Rate • The expected rate of return available on alternative investment opportunities • Historically, the stock market has generated an average annual return of about 10%. • Weighted Actual Cost of Capital (WACC)

10. Discounted Cash Flow Analysis • Same Concept as capital budgeting: Is a \$60 per share ‘initial investment’ in Target Corp. worth the projected future cash flows of this business given a discount rate of 10%? • Instead of a CFO conducting Capital Budgeting analyses to evaluate the projected cash flows of projects for his/her company to invest in, we are a fund conducting DCF analyses to evaluate the projected cash flows of whole companies.

11. Free Cash Flow – Equity • Net Income adjusted for all non-cash sources of revenue and expense, less capital expenditures • Ex. Subtract all revenue paid for on credit, and add all expenses paid for on credit • Add back depreciation – largest non-cash expense • The cash that is left for shareholders after debt-holders have been paid and necessary reinvestment has been made

12. Free Cash Flow – Equity Net Income Add: Depreciation Less: Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) ------------------------------------ Free Cash Flow to Equity

13. DCF Example Lemonade Stand Business Year 0 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Initial Cost (50,000) Operating Income 75,000 84,000 100,000 Taxes (34%) (25,500) (28,560) (34,000) Income \$49,500 \$55,440 \$66,000 Plus: Depreciation 3,750 4,200 5,000 Minus: CapEx 4,500 5,040 6,000 Free Cash Flow (\$50,000) \$48,750 \$54,600 \$65,000 Discount Rate 10% Discounted Values (\$50,000) \$44,318 \$45,123 \$48,835 Present Value \$88,277

14. Terminal Cash Flow • Going Concern Assumption: The business will operate and generate cash flows indefinitely. • Zero Growth: CF / i • \$48,835/0.10 = \$488,350 • 5% Growth: CF*(1+g) / (i-g) • \$48,835*(1.05)/(.05) = \$1,025,535 • Liquidation: Sell off remaining assets in liquidation. • PV of Fixed Assets: \$52,590/(1+10%)^3 =\$39,511

15. Forecasting Cash Flows • Historical performance is not important in terms of business value, but is important in terms of predicting future performance. • The trickiest part of business valuation • Things to consider when predicting the future: • Every projection should be backed by a rational argument • The strongest arguments will include both quantitative and qualitative support • Mean Reversion

16. Forecasting Cash Flows • Historical Simple/Weighted Averages • Primarily used when there is no discernible trend, or current trend is not expected to continue

17. Forecasting Cash Flows • Historical Trend Exrapolation
