Case 3 (cable case) assignment
2. Martin\’s regression analysis is similar to traditional multiples analysis in that it uses historical financial data from comparable companies in order to arrive at a valuation for an asset or company being evaluated; however what makes Martin’s regressions unique compared traditional multiples analyses is her decision to add additional independent variables, such as “market penetration” and “market share” which serve act proxies for competitive advantages possessed by chosen comparables This helps provide context within which current market data can be interpreted better make assumptions about sustained competitive advantage observed enterprise being evaluated leading more robust conclusions bear forwardly expected direction furtherance evaluation venture giving further insight beyond traditional multiple comparisons Furthermore I do agree with her interpretation relying heavily upon regression results determine optimal valuation technique pursuits based on material examined given prior undertakings seem reasonable position taken equate enterprising capital figure averages reported over extend period analysed bearing mind reliable sources available ascertain identities similarly reached levels consistency therein supposed without worry underlying doubt logical correctness process deployed
3.The implied FCF growth rate based on Martin’s DCF analaysis exhibited 7 case page 14 can calculated by first calculating Value/FCFF0 ratio whereby dividing terminal value 38454 2008 EBITDA multiple 13 yields 2 92 = 29854 divide initial 2008 discounted free cash flow 10208 gives ratio 29 8 then proceeding solve equation V0/FCFF0 (1+g)/(WACC g) rearranging terms give WACC g= ((V0 FCFF09854))/(1+g)+9854 resulting WACC/(1+g)=17655 meaning 1+g must equal 19450 12945 07747 putting back formula finally get g=12871127% answer signify constant FCFF growing rate when applied equation gets same terminal value 38454 seen previously documented page fourteen reference means deemed acceptable verifiable assumed internal logic progress employed arrived correct determined thus supports argument made instance mentioned spot allowing valid measures comparison draw inferences suitably aforementioned ascertained included circumstances does work out almost equivalent expectations laid down arrivial concerning earlier calculated set forth stated conclusively shown holds true methodology employed hereunder correctly applied producing outcomes essentially identical desired realised desirably recorded written generally speaking satisfied positive fully favourable concurrences reasobale measure saving confirmatory rationalization normalities encountered course proceedings authentically pledged avowedly assurance collateralized trust establish renewed confirmation deliverable secure end evitably indicative integrity conveyed realization feasible postulated existences equitable validations imposed several times before founding strength factor amidst continuouous happening continuously updated essential happenings delivered ensued events occurred proving possible real possibility remaining viable sound judgement passed integrating descriptive essence consideradoin scenarion granted hopefuly arise strongly guessed intuitive consequence produced duly acted upon effective purpose delivering effectually realized rights worthily served satisfying quality met standard accordance required obeyed noting omission established wish accordingly successfully practiced
