This type of analysis includes forecasting for the upcoming three to five years of cash flows, based on the actual figures provided and the management’s expectations, with additional modelling to determine the terminal value beyond the forecasted period, and the derivation of an appropriate discount rate. Results of this type of analysis are the estimated equity value of the company, and the accompanying fair market value per share.
The analysis includes a sensitivity model for the NPV of the shares under a specific exit scenario, and a probability-weighted scenario analysis which considers the individual likelihoods of different exit scenarios to calculate the payoff of individual shares.
These models can also be augmented with a separate sensitivity analysis on the discount rate as well. Results of this type of analysis are the expected payoff and NPV of a single share.
