Value

 Is Aemetis 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.

In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether Aemetis is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Aemetis has not provided consistent financial data, and the stock also has no analyst forecast or coverage, its intrinsic value cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst consensus cash flow predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Aemetis. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is €0.484.
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 Aemetis's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • Aemetis has negative assets, we can't compare the value of its assets to the DE Oil and Gas industry average.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of DW51’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. When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the potential returns from the core activities, the size of each contract's opportunity, and the capacity of the team. While we are not analysing this type of data at the moment, if you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading through Aemetis's regulatory filings and announcements.

Past Performance

  How has Aemetis performed over the past 5 years?

The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
Past earnings growth
Below we compare Aemetis's growth in the last year to its industry (Oil and Gas).
Past Earnings growth analysis
We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.
  • Aemetis does not make a profit and their year on year earnings growth rate was negative over the past 5 years.
  • Unable to compare Aemetis's 1-year earnings growth to the 5-year average as it is not currently profitable.
  • Unable to compare Aemetis's 1-year growth to the Europe Oil and Gas industry average as it is not currently profitable.

Performance last year
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 Aemetis has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) due to its liabilities exceeding its assets.
  • It is difficult to establish if Aemetis has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the Europe Oil and Gas industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Aemetis improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

Past performance checks
We assess Aemetis's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:

  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Oil and Gas industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)
  4. Is the Return on Equity (ROE) higher than 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.
Aemetis has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

Health

 How is Aemetis'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 Aemetis's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Aemetis's short term (1 year) commitments are greater than its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Aemetis's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Aemetis'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.
  • Aemetis has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not covered by short term assets.
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.

CASH RUNWAY ANALYSIS

For companies that have on average been loss making in the past we assess whether they have at least 1 year of cash runway.

  • Aemetis has less than a year of cash runway based on current free cash flow.
  • Aemetis has less than a year of cash runway if free cash flow continues to grow at historical rates of 54.4% each year.

  7. Aemetis has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.
For companies that are loss making and have been so on average in the past we replace the last 2 checks with:
  1. Does cash and short term investments cover stable operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)
  2. Does cash and short term investments cover growing operating expenses (recurring G&A and R&D) for more than 3 years? (1 check)
