1. Cash Flow Based Valuations Dr. Clive Vlieland-Boddy

2. Discounted Cash Flows • Project the cash flow stream • Chose a discount rate • Determine a terminal value • Calculate the present value

3. Discounted cash flow analysis • Cash receipts are estimated for each of several future periods. • These receipts are converted to value by the application of a discount rate using present value techniques. • The timing of cash inflows and cash outlays are important as well as the amount of the receipts. • The discount rate must be appropriate for the definition of cash flow used. where P0 = present value or market price r = investors’ required rate of return C1, C2, C3= expected income flows in periods 1, 2, 3

4. Example: Using the Discounted Future Income Method to Estimate the Value of a Business *Terminal Value Estimate

5. Principal difficulties with the discounted cash flow technique • Long-term cash flow projections are subject to substantial error. • The choice of the discounting horizon, the point of competitive equilibrium, is also uncertain. • The terminal value, which often accounts for 70% of the final valuation, is subject to the highest error

6. Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)

7. Matching the Discount Rate to the Income Stream For a growing business, net cash flow is typically projected as follows: Net income (after tax) + Non-cash charges (e.g. Depreciation and amortization) • Cash needed for asset replacement - Increase in working capital needed as the business grows + Increase in debt to finance business growth

8. Matching the Discount Rate to the Income Stream (cont’d) • Cash needed for asset replacement will generally exceed depreciation and amortization. • Therefore, when net income is used as the income stream, an upward adjustment should be made to the discount or capitalization rate. • This adjustment should be proportionate to the ratio of net income to net cash flow. • For example, assume net income is \$60,000 and net cash flow is \$50,000. Also assume the net cash flow discount rate is 20%. The net income discount rate would be 24% as follows: \$60,000/\$50,000 = 1.2 20% x 1.2 = 24% • Other valuers feel the difference between net cash flow and net income, in the long run, is usually small and can generally be ignored or included in the company-specific risk factor.

9. Discounted Cash-Flow Approach • Estimated future cash flows are discounted back to present value based on the investor’s required rate of return • Discounted dividend valuation • Discounted operating cash-flow models

10. Discounted Dividend Valuation • Most straightforward approach • Explicit cash flows received by equity investors • Dividends • Terminal value when shares are sold • Firm is expected to have an infinite life

11. Discounted Dividend ValuationRequired rate of return (r) • For nonpublic companies, use a buildup model and historical sources for data • Begin with risk-free rate • + Equity risk premium • + Small company premium • + Company specific risk premium • = Required rate of return

12. Discounted Dividend ValuationGrowth rate (g) • Top-Down analysis • Begin with growth of economy • Adjust for industry, sector and company factors • Sustainable growth = ROE(1-Payout rate) • ROE = Earnings/Average equity • Payout rate: proportion of earnings used to pay dividends or repurchase shares
