Value

 Is Ecosphere Technologies 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 Ecosphere Technologies is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future. But as Ecosphere Technologies 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 Ecosphere Technologies. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is €0.001.
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 Ecosphere Technologies's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  2. When valuing a company like this, investors focus more on how they perceive the size of the opportunity, the company's ability to deliver and scale, and the strength 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 Ecosphere Technologies's regulatory filings and announcements.

Future Performance

 How is Ecosphere Technologies 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 Ecosphere Technologies 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!

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 Ecosphere Technologies will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Examine Ecosphere Technologies's financial health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial stress by looking at its level of debt over time and how much cash it has left.
  2. Ecosphere Technologies'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

Health

 How is Ecosphere Technologies's financial health and their level of debt?

In this section we usually analyse Ecosphere Technologies's finance health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial distress, in particular, its ability to manage its cash and debt levels. Ecosphere Technologies has not provided adequate balance sheet data, its financial health cannot be properly assessed as it.

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

Show me the analysis anyway

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 Ecosphere Technologies's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Unable to compare short term assets to short term liabilities as Ecosphere Technologies has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
  • Unable to establish if Ecosphere Technologies's long term commitments exceed its cash and other short term assets as Ecosphere Technologies has not reported sufficient balance sheet data.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Ecosphere Technologies'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.
  • Unable to establish if Ecosphere Technologies has a high level of physical assets or inventory without balance sheet data.
  • Ecosphere Technologies has no debt, it does not need to be 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.

  • Ecosphere Technologies has no debt.
  • Ecosphere Technologies currently has no debt however we can't compare to 5 years ago as we have no data for that period.
  • Ecosphere Technologies has no debt, it does not need to be covered by operating cash flow.
  • Ecosphere Technologies has no debt, therefore coverage of interest payments is not a concern.

Next steps:

  1. Take a look at our analysis of 8E2’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. Investors tend to look at the financial health of a company this size in order to assess the sustainability of its current operations. Ecosphere Technologies's cash and debt levels may be found in its annual reports archived here.
  3. Financial health is measured at one point in time, so the latest financial report is the best representation of the company’s current financial status. Check when Ecosphere Technologies's financial data was last updated here.
