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:WISE using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

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

WISE Future Performance

 How is Wise Group 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 Wise Group 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!

  • Unable to establish if Wise Group will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Examine Wise Group'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. Wise Group'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 Commercial Services companies here
  3. Wise Group's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.

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

  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)

WISE Health

 How is Wise Group'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 Wise Group's finances.

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