Relative valuation

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2. ◦ Sales Multiple◦ P/E multiple◦ Price to Book multiple◦ Enterprise value to EBIT multiple 2
  3. 3.  If valuation is being done for an IPO or a takeover, ◦ Value of firm = Average Transaction P/E multiple × EPS of firm ◦ Average Transaction multiple is the average multiple of recent transactions (IPO or takeover as the case may be) If valuation is being done to estimate firm value ◦ Value of firm = Average P/E multiple in industry × EPS of firm This method can be used when ◦ firms in the industry are profitable (have positive earnings) ◦ firms in the industry have similar growth (more likely for “mature” industries) ◦ firms in the industry have similar capital structure 3
  4. 4.  The application of this method is similar to that of the P/E multiple method. Since the book value of equity is essentially the amount of equity capital invested in the firm, this method measures the market value of each rupee of equity invested. This method can be used for ◦ companies in the manufacturing sector which have significant capital requirements. 4
  5. 5.  This multiple measures the enterprise value , that is the value of the business operations (as opposed to the value of the equity). In calculating enterprise value, only the operational value of the business is included. Generally Value from investment activities, such as investment in treasury bills or bonds, or investment in stocks of other companies, is excluded. 5

  10. 10.  Using fundamentals ◦ Valuation related to fundamentals of business being valued Using comparables ◦ Valuation is estimated by comparing business with a comparable fit 10
  11. 11.  Using fundamentals for multiples to be estimated for valuation ◦ Relates multiples to fundamentals of business being valued, eg earnings, profits ◦ Similar to cash flow model, same information is required ◦ Shows relationships between multiples and firm characteristics 11
  12. 12.  Using Comparables for estimation of firm value ◦ Review of comparable firms to estimate value ◦ Definition of comparable can be difficult ◦ May range from simple to complex analysis 12
  13. 13.  Simple and easy to use Useful when data of comparable firms and assets are available. Require less time and efforts Easier to justify and sell. Closer to the market value (more value if the comparable firm is getting more in the market) 13
  14. 14.  Easy to misuse Selection of comparable can be subjective Errors in comparable firms get factored into valuation model RGC (Risk, Growth, Cash Flow) may be ignored. Have a short shelf life (compared to fundamentals). 14
  15. 15.  I) Select the relevant measure and value drivers. II) Identification of the “COMPS”. III) Select and calculate appropriate multiple – aggregation of multiple into single number through analysis of “COMPS”. IV) Apply to the company V) Make final adjustments for non-operating assets, Contingent liabilities and convertibles. 15
  16. 16.  Equity multiple or entity multiple ? Which value driver/ multiple to use? Trailing multiple or forward looking multiple? More number of multiples vs. less multiples ? 16
  17. 17.  Matching principle – numerator and denominator should have consistent definition Capital structure – equity multiple is greatly affected by the capital structure than entity multiple Difference in earning guidance and investment and payout policy Enterprise value most of the requires approximation of debt value Stage of business life cycle Empirical research supports forward looking multiples processing two years analysts forecast 17
  18. 18.  Use industry classification system or at least list firm’s competitors SIC: Standard Industrial classification GICS: Global industry classification benchmark Size and region Number of comparables- 4 to 8 ideal size ( plus or minus 2 18
  19. 19.  Management Style Size Product & Customer diversification Technology Key Financial trends Strategic & operational strategies Market positioning & maturity of operation Geographical consideration Trading volume of selected companies Price volatility (σ) Distribution of multiples – across the sector & market 19
  20. 20.  P/E (Price Earning Ratio) P/B (Price to Book Ratio) Equity / Sales Equity / Cash flow Equity / PAT Equity / Book value of share 20
  21. 21.  MVIC / Sales MVIC / EBITDA MVIC / EBIT MVIC / Book value of invested capital MVIC/TA 21
  22. 22.  PER – most commonly used multiples Make sure definition is consistent & uniform PER = MPS / EPS Variant of PER Current PER = Current MPS / Current EPS Some analyst may use average price over last 6m or a year Trailing PER = Current MPS / EPS based on last 4 quarters. [or, LTM: Last twelve months] Forward PER = Current MPS / expected EPS during next F/Y EPS may further be based on fully diluted basis or primary basis EPS may include or exclude extraordinary items 22
  23. 23.  For Growth Company forward PER will consistently give low value than trailing PER Bullish valuer use forward PER to conclude that stock is undervalued. Bearish valuer will consider Current PER to justify that Stock is overvalued. Full Impact of dilution may not occur during next year leading to lower EPS. While using industry PER be careful about outliers MLF (money loosing firm) creates a bias in selection Equity value is calculated based on existing outstanding shares but EPS is on fully diluted basis. 23
  24. 24.  PEG = PER / expected growth in EPS One mistake analyst will make to consider growth in operating income rather than EPS Growth should be consistent with PER calculation Never use forward PER for PEG as it amounts to double counting of growth Lower the PEG better the stock If PER is high without growth prospect, PEG will be high – risky firm PEG does not consider risk taken in growth and sustainability of growth. 24
  25. 25.  P/B ratio = market value of equity / book value of equity Book value is computed from the Financial Statement Price of book ratio near to 4 is highly priced stock [mean P/B ratio of all listed firm in USA during 2006 was 4] Price to Sales ratio (Revenue multiple) = market value of equity Revenue The larger the revenue multiple better it is. Generally there is no sectoral Revenue multiple. 25
  26. 26.  MVIC multiple look at market value of operating assets of the firm (and not only for equity invested). MVIC multiple is not affected by Finance leverage. If firms under comparison are differing in their financial leverage, put more reliance on MVIC multiple. 26
  27. 27.  The market approach is especially relevant if standard of value is FMV. No company is exactly comparable to another, this approach requires best of extensive guidance that market can provide. The subject company need not be exactly in the similar business but should be impacted by the same economic influences. Size difference between two companies can be adjusted for: Equity or MVIC multiple can be used for valuing either controlling or minority interest. MVIC multiple is preferable for valuing controlling interest and equity multiple for minority interest 27
  28. 28.  If MVIC is used to value on a minority interest basis, no adjustment should be made to the subject company’s actual capital structure (since minority shareholders cannot force such an adjustment) Equity should be taken on a fully diluted basis (For options, warrants, convertibles, the no. of equity units should be computed as if conversion rights were exercised. [No. of units of ES O/S = no. of ES after dilution] 28
  29. 29.  MVIC = Equity + PS + LTD + current portion of LTID [or all IBD, i.e. interest bearing debt] [may also subtract cash or cash equivalent. Marketable securities are included with cash equivalent] This is more preferable because different cash mix creates problem. 29
  30. 30.  MVIC should be on M P basis and it is not book value. Market value of equity multiple can be either on per share basis or on a total basis. Price per share/ EPS or, MV of Equity/PAT Round multiple to one decimal MVIC should be on a total company basis rather than on a per-share basis 30
  31. 31.  Conceptually only LTD (including current portion of LTD) should be considered. Due to practical difficulty we use AIBL [ difficult to assess how much interest is short term or long term. Some companies use ST debt as if it is LTD] 31
  32. 32. Description of the subject Co. in terms of Line of business ◦ Market served ◦ Size: Revenue and Asset ◦ Other criteriaI) Then use above information to select guideline Co.II) Based on definition create a population of companies in similar line of businessIII) Normalize financials of both subject Co. & guideline Co.IV) Carryout comparative Financial analysisV) Identify and list similarities and assess relative strength and weakness. [site visit and management interviews helps] 32
  33. 33. VI) Gather industry & economic date. Identify positions of subject Co. in industry. Assess how economic factor will affect both. VII) Choose what multiples to rely on and the appropriate value for each multiple. Two factors that influence selection of multiples of operating variables are Growth prospects of subject company relative to guideline Risk 33
