CORPORATE VALUATION Dantzler Corporation is a fast-growing supplier of office products. Analysts project the following free cash flows (FCFs) during the next 3 years, after which FCF is expected to grow at a constant 5% rate. Dantzler’s WACC is 11%. a. What is Dantzler’s horizon, or continuing, value? (Flint: Find the value of all free cash flows beyond Year 3 discounted back to Year 3.) b. What is the firm’s value today? c. Suppose Dantzler has $112.60 million of debt and 25 million shares of stock outstanding. What is your estimate of the current price per share? a. Summary Introduction To compute: The horizon value for Company D. Introduction: Corporate Valuation: The process to evaluate a firm on the basis of its future operations and the results of those operations is called corporate valuation. It is a useful tool to analyze a firm’s stock for investment purposes. Horizon Value: The value at a specified future date that includes the total of discounted amount to be received after that future date is called as the horizon value. The future date that is considered here, is the one after which the growth in cash flows will be constant forever. Explanation Given information: Free cash flow at the end of third year is$45 million.

Constant growth rate is 5% or 0.05.

WACC is 11% or 0.11.

Formula to compute the horizon value,

Horizon value=FCF3(1+g)WACCg

Where,

• FCF3 is the free cash flow at the end of 3rd year.
• g is the constant growth rate of free cash flow.
• WACC is the weighted average cost of capital.

Substitute \$45 million for FCF3 , 0
