Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for CNSX:OPI using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for ESI Energy Services is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Note: Free cash flow to equity valuations ignore the company's cash or debt.

Current Discount Checks
For ESI Energy Services to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.

OPI Future Performance

 How is ESI Energy Services expected to perform in the next 1 to 3 years based on estimates from 0 analysts?

In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as ESI Energy Services has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have past financial data. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

The future performance of a company is measured in the same way as past performance, by looking at estimated growth and how much profit it is expected to make.

Future estimates come from professional analysts. Just like forecasting the weather, they don’t always get it right!

  • ESI Energy Services used its assets less efficiently than the CA Trade Distributors industry average last year based on Return on Assets.

OPI Health

 How is ESI Energy Services's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up ESI Energy Services's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • ESI Energy Services is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • ESI Energy Services's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of ESI Energy Services's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 5.8x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
