Q: 1 part b

While using this method is used for financial analysis. No matter if it gives a complete picture of the valuation and company analysis. Along with the pros of using this method, there are also cons of the DCF method, The main problem which was noted in this method was that there are chances of errors in the calculations and along with that while doing analysis it is hard to estimate the value and importance of firm. This method is very lengthy and requires more concentration. It only considers the cost of the firm, not the competitor’s value. Degree of uncertainty increase in this analysis. Despite the problems, I would suggest using the multiple-based target price approach because it requires-fewer assumptions that means that low uncertainty.


 No doubt there is a difference between the free cash flow of equity and the free cash flow of a firm. The free cash flow of a firm (FCFF) is the cash flow available for discretionary distribution to all the investors of a company it includes both debt and equity once the cash expenses and capital expenditure has been paid. Whereas the cash flow of equity (FCFE) is the discretionary cash available only in the equity holder company. Both have different calculation methods free cash flow and unpaid cash flows both are discussed below:


Uncounted Cash Flow

EBIT * (1-Rate) + Non- financial Costs – Changes in workingAssets and Liabilities – CapEx

Cash Flows from spending+ changedInterest Rate Tax – CAPEX

ModifiedInterest Costs + Interest charges + Non-Cash payment – Changes in Operating and dues Assets – CAPEX


Free Money Flow

Net + Non-Cash Revenue – exchange in Operating and dues Assets – CAPEX + Net dues Issued (Replaced)

Cash Flow from workings – CAPEX + CRR (Refunded)



The price depletion depends on the type of cash flow we are using and the reduction rate of FCF is also defined based onIf FCF is being deducted. When we calculate using WACC It is used as deducted rate and it gives complete firm analysis.


To find the discounted factor or WACC we started with gathering and calculating the data first we calculated the leveraged beta and then the cost of equity and cost of debt i.e. leveraged beta was 1.19, cost of equity was 21%, cost of debt was 7%. the WACC was calculated through a formula of multiplying the cost of debt with a ratio of debt and vice versa and added those it was 14.02.detailed calculation can be seen in Exhibit…………………….
