In this case, the logical action would be to liquidate assets.

Financial Professionals
Value = PV of Future Cash Flows
Where cash flows represent
dividendable earnings or earnings
that can be released to investors
Actuaries
Value = ANW + PV of Future Earnings – COC
Where ANW = adjusted net worth
PV = Present Value
COC = Cost of Capital

A DCF model discounts free cash flows at the hurdle rate to determine value
An EVA model defines
Value = Initial capital invested
+
PV of “Excess returns”

Methodology
common, the two methodologies yield
identical results.

In summary inputs to compute DCF value are…
DCF Value = Free Capital +

+ PV “Excess Returns”:
Where excess returns
= after-tax operating earnings
– (hurdle rate x capital invested)

“ANW” represents Initial Capital
“PVFE – COC” represents excess returns
PVFE = PV [after tax operating earnings]
COC = PV [each period starting capital x hurdle rate]

Scenario 1B
Initial Capital = $100
Hurdle Rate 15%
Total Earnings = Hurdle Rate
Table 2
Valuation Results
Earnings Growth Rate = 3%

Scenario 2A
Initial Capital = $100
Hurdle Rate 15%
Total Earnings > Hurdle Rate
Table 3
Valuation Results
Earnings Growth Rate = 0%

Scenario 2B
Initial Capital = $100
Hurdle Rate 15%
Total Earnings > Hurdle Rate

Scenario 3A
Initial Capital = $100
Hurdle Rate 15%
Total Earnings < Hurdle Rate
