16 C APITALIZATION OF I NCOME Basic capitalization formula: PV = E 1 /c Where: E 1 = expected economic income at the end of next year c = capitalization rate Example: If E 1 = $100,000 and c = 20% then PV = $500,000

17 D ISCOUNTED C ASH F LOW The value of a business is the present value of the income it can reasonably be expected to generate in the future… Basic DCF formula: What about after the forecast period? Where d is the discount rate…

18 D ISCOUNTED C ASH F LOW – T ERMINAL V ALUE One method is to calculate the terminal value using a capitalization of income method… Where: PV = Terminal Value E n = Earnings during last period of forecast k = discount rate (required rate of return) g = growth rate of E n in perpetuity n = number of periods in the projection period

19 D ISCOUNT AND C APITALIZATION R ATES A discount rate is a rate of return used to convert a monetary sum into a present value; also known as opportunity cost of capital weighted average cost of capital required rate of return How to determine for a closely held company? Build-up models CAPM
