KNR Value

 Is Kontrol Energy undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
Here we compare the current share price of Kontrol Energy to its discounted cash flow analysis.value.

The discounted cash flow value is simply looking at what the company is worth today, based on estimates of how much money it is expected to make in the future.

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

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Kontrol Energy 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 Kontrol Energy to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Kontrol Energy's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a moderate discount (< 20%).
  • Kontrol Energy's share price is below the future cash flow value, but not at a substantial discount (< 40%).
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Kontrol Energy's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

KNR Future Performance

 How is Kontrol Energy 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 Kontrol Energy 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!

Performance in 3 years
In the same way as past performance we look at the future estimated return (profit) compared to the available funds. We do this looking forward 3 years.
  • Unable to establish if Kontrol Energy will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of KNR’s management and see if the CEO’s compensation is within a reasonable range, who is on the board and if insiders have been trading lately.
  2. Kontrol Energy's future outlook can be gauged by looking at industry trends and market size, and determining how well-positioned the company is compared to its competitors. Take a look at other high-growth Utilities companies here
  3. Kontrol Energy's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.
  4. Use fundamentals to screen for another stock to analyse from our database of over 75,000 companies worldwide

We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • It is difficult to establish if Kontrol Energy has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Kontrol Energy has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the CA Renewable Energy industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.

KNR Health

 How is Kontrol Energy'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 Kontrol Energy's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Kontrol Energy's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Kontrol Energy's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Kontrol Energy'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.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is not covered by short term assets, assets are 0.5x 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.
