Valuation Situations

We encounter valuation in many situations:

Mergers & Acquisitions Initial Public Offerings / Follow on Offering Qualified Institutional Placements Private Equity and Buyout Investors buying a minority interest in Companies Sell-offs, Spin-offs and Divestment

What cash flow to discount?

Investors in stock receive dividends, or periodic cash distributions from the company, and capital gains on re-sale of stock in future If investor buys and holds stock forever, all they receive are dividends In Dividend Discount Model (DDM), analysts forecast future dividends for a company and discount at the required equity return

the valuation formula reduces to (Geometric Progression): Ve = Div1/(r . . = g) .. .Dividend Discount Model (DDM) The value of equity (Ve) is the present value of the (expected) future stream of dividends Ve = Div1/(1+r) + Div1(1+g2)/(1+r)2 + Div1(1+g2)(1+g3)/(1+r)3 +. If growth is constant (g2 = g3 = .g) Some estimation problems: firms may not (currently) pay dividends dividend payments may be not be stable ..

e. firm has significant ³growth opportunities´) .Valuation: Back to First Principles Value of the firm = value of fixed claims (debt) + value of equity How do finance managers add to equity value? By taking on projects with positive net present value (NPV) Equity Value = Equity capital projects provided + NPV of future Note: Market to book ratio > 1 if market expects firm to take on positive NPV projects (i.

Vdebt where Vdebt is value of fixed obligations (primarily debt) .DCFF Valuation Process Value of all the firm¶s assets (or value of ³the firm´) = Vfirm = TEV + the value of uninvested capital Uninvested capital includes: assets not required (³redundant assets´) ³excess´ cash (not needed for day-to-day operations) Value of the firm¶s equity = Vequity = Vfirm .

the most significant item of uninvested capital is cash Vfirm = Vequity + Vdebt = TEV + cash TEV = Vequity + Vdebt .cash TEV = Vequity + Net debt where Net debt is debt .cash (note: this assumes all cash is ³excess´) .Total Enterprise Value (TEV) For most firms.

CAPM or RE = Rf + x [E(RM) ± Rf] Rf = Risk-Free Rate (10-year G-Sec) E(RM) = Expected Return of the Market [E(RM) ± Rf] is usually referred to as the market-risk premium.CAPM (Cost of Equity) Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is a way of finding an acceptable rate of return for an asset (think Modern Portfolio Theory). you would be safe to assume the market-risk premium as 8-9%. This is essentially the return someone investing in the market (Nifty or Sensex) can expect to make above and beyond the risk-free rate. . Currently. It is often used in valuation as the cost of equity for a company.

Two Stage FCFF Valuation Impossible to forecast cash flow indefinitely into the future with accuracy Typical solution: break future into ³stages´ Stage 1 : firm experiences high growth Sources of extraordinary growth: product segmentation low cost producer Period of extraordinary growth: based on competitive analysis / industry analysis Stage 2: firm experiences stable growth .

Relative Valuation: Capitalisation of Earnings Compute the ratio of stock price to forecasted earnings for ³comparable´ firms determine an appropriate ³P/E multiple´ If EPS1 is the expected earnings for firm we are valuing. then the price of the firm (P) should be such that: P / EPS1 = ³P/E multiple´ Rearranging. P = ³P/E multiple´ x EPS1 .

37.50 Comparable Company: XYZ corporation Next year¶s forecasted EPS = Rs.5 Note: Analyst prefer ³forward looking´ ratios ³backward looking´ ratios are more readily available Key: Make comparisons ³apples with apples´ but .50 = Rs.1.0.80 = 25 If ABC and XYZ are comparable.P/E Multiple Valuation: Illustration ABC Company: Next year¶s forecasted EPS = Rs.80 Current share price = Rs. they should trade at same PE Implied price of ABC = 25 * 1.20 PE ratio = 20 / 0.

the ³P/E multiple´ relates to growth and risk of underlying cash flows for firm Key: identification of ³comparable´ firms similar industry. growth prospects. leverage industry average . risk.P/E Ratio Based Valuation Fundamentally.

Compute the ratio of TEV to forecasted EBITDA for ³comparable´ firms determine an appropriate ³TEV / EBITDA multiple´ If EBITDA1 is the expected earnings for the firm we are valuing.EV / EBIDTA Approach (EBIDTA Multiple) TEV = MVequity + MVdebt .Cash EBITDA: Earnings before Depreciation and Amortization Interest. Taxes. then the TEV for the firm should be such that: TEV / EBITDA1 = ³EV / EBITDA multiple´ .

MVdebt + cash Multiples again determined from ³comparable´ firms similar issues as in the application of P/E multiples leverage less important concern .EV / EBIDTA Approach (EBIDTA Multiple) Rearranging: TEV = ³EV / EBITDA multiple´ x EBITDA1 Next solve for equity value using: MVequity = TEV .

300 million EV / EBITDA ratio = 300 / 40 = 7. Shares outstanding = 10 million.EV / EBIDTA Multiple Valuation: Illustration ABC Company: Next year¶s forecasted EBITDA = Rs.100 million.5 If ABC and XYZ are comparable.50 million Shares outstanding = Rs. they should trade at same EV/EBITDA Implied EV for ABC = 7.5 * 50 = 375 million Value of equity = 375 + 0 ± 50 = Rs.0 Comparable Company: XYZ Corporation Next year¶s forecasted EBITDA = Rs.16. Value of Debt = Rs. Value of Debt = Rs.325 million Price per share = 325 / 20 = Rs.40 million Current share price = Rs.50 million. Cash = Rs. 20 million.25 . Cash = Rs.20.0 EV = 20 * 10 + 100 ± 0 = Rs.

price to earnings? . for example.Other Multiple based Approaches Other multiples: Price to Cash Flow: P = ³P/CF multiple´ X CF1 Price to Revenue: P = ³P / Rev multiple´ X REV1 Multiple again determined from ³comparable´ firms Why would you consider price to revenue over.

Merger Methods Comparable transactions: Identify recent transactions that are ³similar´ Ratio-based valuation Look at ratios to price paid in transaction to various target financials (earnings. EBITDA. sales. etc.) Ratio should be similar in this transaction Premium paid analysis Look at premiums in recent merger transactions (price paid to recent stock price) Premium should be similar in this transaction .

Damodaran. inputs are subjective A well-researched. valuation is objective models are quantitative.

Valuation Creation Summary Firms create value by earning a return on invested capital above the cost of capital The more firms invest at returns above the cost of capital the more value is created Firms should select strategies that maximize the present value of expected cash flows The market value of shares is the intrinsic value based on market expectations of future performance (but expectations may not be ³unbiased´) Shareholder returns depend primarily on changes in expectations more than actual firm performance Source: ³Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies´.
