  13. 13. Calculate the Value of NestléThe expected cash flow at the end of the year is $11.5 billion(FCF1). Assuming a growth rate of 8.5% for the next twoyears, the cash flows are $12.5 billion (FCF2) and $13.5billion (FCF3), respectively. Then assume that the futurecash flows will grow at a constant growth rate of 5% for thefourth year and beyond. Use a 10% cost of capital. Find thepresent value of the future cash flows. 3 quarters:- $11.5 billion / (1+.1)^1 = $10.45 billion $12.5 billion / (1+.1)^2 = $10.33 billion $13.5 billion / (1+.1)^3 = $10.14 billion [[$13.5 billion x (1.05)] / (.1-.05)] x (1/1.1)^3 = $213.00 billion Total:- $10.45 + $10.33 + $10.14 + $213.00 =$243.92 billion
