Q-1 What valuation(s) can we place on the business? What method(s) did you use to arrive at the valuation(s)?
Valuation Based on Discounted cash Flow
Discounted Cash Flow Paint Pen Value using this model is $8.17M. The WACC used for discounting cash flows was 16%. We had made the following assumptions about revenues projections which were based on our growth strategy:
15% growth rate in FY-1997R
17% growth rate in FY-1998E
20% growth rate in FY-1999E
25% growth rate in FY-2000E
Gross Margin increases from 37.2% in 1996 to 38 %in 1997 and 1998, from 38% in 1998 t0 39% in 1999 and from 39%in 1999 to 40% in 2000. We expect that the gross margin will improve further in the coming years and target a Gross Margin of 45 %.
Selling General and Administrative expenses were 20 % for 1996 and 1997 and we anticipate an increased in the Selling General and Administrative Expenses to be 22% of sales in the year 1998,1999 and 2000
