Step 4: Calculating the Terminal Value

Terminal value (TV) is the value of a business or project beyond the forecast period when future cash flows can be estimated. It assumes that a business will grow at a set growth rate forever after the forecast period. Terminal value often comprises a large percentage of the total assessed value.

Terminal Value Calculation Units INR Millions
Free Cash Flow to Firm 76833.83
Growth Rate 5.50%
Cost of Capital 14.07%
Terminal Value 946008.53
Terminal Value: Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation

Step 5: Calculating the Discount Rate

DCF analysis helps assess the viability of a project or investment by calculating the present value of expected future cash flows using a discount rate. Here we use the Weighted average cost of capital (WACC) to discount the cash flow. The below table from the excel model shows the calculation of WACC for Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation.

Step 6: Discounting the Cashflows

The WACC and the Cost of Equity for the company calculated in the above step are then used to discount the FCFF, FCFE and Terminal Value calculated in Step 3 and 4. In our case, we’ll only consider the FCFF based Intrinsic price of the shares as it represents the cash flow to all the suppliers of capital and not only to the equity shareholders. Thus we arrive at Present value of future FCFF for Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation. (Units are INR Millions)

Step 7: Arriving at the Intrinsic Value of the Shares

Dividing the PV of the FCFF and Terminal Value (the Value of the entire firm) by the number of outstanding shares we get the per share intrinsic value. We can compare this price with the current market price of the stock to get the Discount or Premium to its intrinsic price.

Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation Units
PV in INR Million 625325
No of Shares Outstanding (In Million) 289
Intrinsic Value 2163.75
Current Market Price of Share 2930.00
Current Discount/Premium 35%
Intrinsic Value of the Shares: Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation

Bajaj Auto Shares Valuation and Intrinsic Share Price = INR 2163.75
