Part 2 – Valuation [15%]

Part 2 contains 2 questions:

Q1) Start your valuation analysis with the CAPM estimation

You need 3 variables to calculate the CAPM: – Estimate Beta (β): You can estimate beta by using regression analysis Or by manual

calculation  For both approach you need to use the stock price data of the company and ASX/S&P200 to estimate return for five years  Then follow the formula of beta estimation on topic 3 – Risk-Free Rate of Return: Take the 10 year Govt. bond yield rate as a proxy for RFR – Risk Premium: It is the difference between expected market return E(Rm) and RFR  We have provided E(Rm)= 9.610% [source: Bloomberg] Once you estimate the CAPM required rate of return denoted as E(Re) following the steps above, you can use this return (also known as cost of equity, ke) in the valuation model

- Use assumptions if necessary

- Forecast dividends (if applicable)

 Free Cash flow to Equity (FCFE): Follow the formula discussed in chapter 6
