Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for TTSE:GML using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Guardian Media 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.

GML Future Performance

 How is Guardian Media 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 Guardian Media 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 Guardian Media will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Examine Guardian Media'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. Guardian Media'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 Media companies here

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 Guardian Media has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Guardian Media has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the South America Media industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Guardian Media improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

GML Health

 How is Guardian Media'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 Guardian Media's finances.

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