Enterprise Value is the present value of the post-tax cash flows for a business into the future.
Where:
- C1, C2, C3 - the cash flow in period 1, 2, 3, ...
- r - the discount rate
To capture the cash flows into the future a terminal value is calculated via a perpetuity calculation -
based on the final years forecast post-tax free cash flow.
Where:
- Cn - the cash flow in the final forecast period.
- LTG - the long-term growth rate
- r - the discount rate
- g - the terminal growth rate
The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is used to determine the equity component in the discount rate.
Where:
- rt - the risk free rate
- t - the tax rate
- B - the beta of the company
- MRP - the Market Risk Premium
Valuecruncher uses an estimate of Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) to determine the discount rate in the calculation.

BUD grew revenues from US$14.9 billion in 2004 to US$16.7 billion in 2007 – a 3.7% compound annual growth rate. Our assumptions of revenues for the next three years are US$17.5 billion in 2008 growing to US$19.0 billion in 2010 – a 4.4% compound annual growth rate. We have projected EBITDA margins to be flat at 24%. We have used a terminal growth rate of 3%. We used a terminal capital expenditure number of US$900 million. We have also used a WACC (discount rate) of 7.5%.
