POOL B Value

 Is Poolia 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 Poolia 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 OM:POOL B using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Poolia 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 Poolia to be considered undervalued it must be available for at least 20% below the current price. Less than 40% is even better.
  • Poolia's share price is below the future cash flow value, and at a moderate discount (> 20%).
  • Poolia's share price is below the future cash flow value, and 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.

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.
  • Poolia has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Poolia used its assets more efficiently than the SE Professional Services industry average last year based on Return on Assets.
  • Poolia's use of capital deteriorated last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed).

  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Professional Services 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)

POOL B Health

 How is Poolia'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 Poolia's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Poolia is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Poolia's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Poolia'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.
  • Poolia 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.
