Scenario 1

Average FCF over the past three years is $3265 million. Starting at $3265 million FCF, assuming the company achieves a 5-year growth rate in FCF of 15% per year, and assuming that after the next five years, the company achieves no growth in FCF or 0% growth per year forever:

The firm's future cash flows, discounted at a WACC of 13.13%, give a present value for the entire firm (Debt + Equity) of $48,187 million. If the firm's fair value of debt is estimated at $8132 million, then the fair value of the firm's equity could be $40,055 million. $40,055 million / 787 million outstanding shares is approximately $51 per share and a 20% margin of safety is $41/share.
