The boring details
All amounts in millions | Figures |
Enterprise Value: | 809,780 |
Net Debt (Long-term borrowings less cash): | 498,369 |
Equity Value: | 199,001 |
Number of Shares Outstanding: | 10,495,000,000 |
Calculated value per share: | $21.62 |
Enterprise Value is the present value of the post-tax cash flows for a business into the future.
Where:
- C1, C2, C3 - the cash flow in period 1, 2, 3, ...
- r - the discount rate
To capture the cash flows into the future a terminal value is calculated via a perpetuity calculation -
based on the final years forecast post-tax free cash flow.
Where:
- Cn - the cash flow in the final forecast period.
- LTG - the long-term growth rate
- r - the discount rate
- g - the terminal growth rate
The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is used to determine the equity component in the discount rate.
Where:
- rt - the risk free rate
- t - the tax rate
- B - the beta of the company
- MRP - the Market Risk Premium
Valuecruncher uses an estimate of Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) to determine the discount rate in the calculation.
Valuation very sensitive to choice of discount rate!
Bottom line earnings are not just a function of profitability margin.
They will be impacted by loss provisions/asset writedowns of the Finance Group.
Completely agree - especially re the situation in GE Finance. If GE Finance is "OK" then GE looks undervalued. But if there are nasty surprises there (and that is hard to make a call on right now) - that changes everything.
