What is this project?
This project provides an opportunity to get some hands-on experience applying corporate finance theory and models to real firms. In the process, participants will get a chance to value a publicly traded company of your own choice.
I. Company overview (nature of business, industry structure and main competitors).
II. Company Risk profile.
III. Historical company performance. Provide a detailed ratio analysis for the last five years including a comparative analysis with its industry.
IV. Company Valuation using the Enterprise DCF Valuation Model discussed in Chapter 6 of the KGW (McKinsey Valuation book, see page 3 below). Your DCF analysis must include detailed financial forecasts (SEE CHAPTER 6-10 OF KGW) and all relevant assumptions must be clearly stated. Your discussion of valuation estimation methods must include the following at a minimum:
a. Identification and discussion of key value drivers for the company
b. Sensitivity analysis including a triangulation of the estimates.
c. Estimation of value per share for the company based on your analysis and must also report the market price per share for the company as at the close of trading on Friday, November 22, 2015.
