### Key Insights

• INTEKPLUS' estimated fair value is ₩16,559 based on 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity
• With ₩15,820 share price, INTEKPLUS appears to be trading close to its estimated fair value
• The ₩33,000 analyst price target for A064290 is 99% more than our estimate of fair value

How far off is INTEKPLUS Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ:064290) from its intrinsic value? Using the most recent financial data, we'll take a look at whether the stock is fairly priced by taking the expected future cash flows and discounting them to today's value. One way to achieve this is by employing the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model. It may sound complicated, but actually it is quite simple!

Companies can be valued in a lot of ways, so we would point out that a DCF is not perfect for every situation. If you want to learn more about discounted cash flow, the rationale behind this calculation can be read in detail in the Simply Wall St analysis model.

## The Calculation

We're using the 2-stage growth model, which simply means we take in account two stages of company's growth. In the initial period the company may have a higher growth rate and the second stage is usually assumed to have a stable growth rate. In the first stage we need to estimate the cash flows to the business over the next ten years. Where possible we use analyst estimates, but when these aren't available we extrapolate the previous free cash flow (FCF) from the last estimate or reported value. We assume companies with shrinking free cash flow will slow their rate of shrinkage, and that companies with growing free cash flow will see their growth rate slow, over this period. We do this to reflect that growth tends to slow more in the early years than it does in later years.

Generally we assume that a dollar today is more valuable than a dollar in the future, so we discount the value of these future cash flows to their estimated value in today's dollars:

#### 10-year free cash flow (FCF) forecast

 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 2030 2031 2032 2033 2034 Levered FCF (₩, Millions) ₩16.3b ₩15.9b ₩15.7b ₩15.8b ₩15.9b ₩16.1b ₩16.4b ₩16.7b ₩17.1b ₩17.4b Growth Rate Estimate Source Analyst x1 Est @ -2.49% Est @ -0.97% Est @ 0.09% Est @ 0.83% Est @ 1.35% Est @ 1.71% Est @ 1.97% Est @ 2.14% Est @ 2.27% Present Value (₩, Millions) Discounted @ 9.5% ₩14.9k ₩13.3k ₩12.0k ₩10.9k ₩10.1k ₩9.3k ₩8.7k ₩8.1k ₩7.5k ₩7.0k

("Est" = FCF growth rate estimated by Simply Wall St)
Present Value of 10-year Cash Flow (PVCF) = ₩102b

The second stage is also known as Terminal Value, this is the business's cash flow after the first stage. The Gordon Growth formula is used to calculate Terminal Value at a future annual growth rate equal to the 5-year average of the 10-year government bond yield of 2.6%. We discount the terminal cash flows to today's value at a cost of equity of 9.5%.

Terminal Value (TV)= FCF2034 × (1 + g) ÷ (r – g) = ₩17b× (1 + 2.6%) ÷ (9.5%– 2.6%) = ₩257b

Present Value of Terminal Value (PVTV)= TV / (1 + r)10= ₩257b÷ ( 1 + 9.5%)10= ₩103b

The total value is the sum of cash flows for the next ten years plus the discounted terminal value, which results in the Total Equity Value, which in this case is ₩205b. The last step is to then divide the equity value by the number of shares outstanding. Relative to the current share price of ₩16k, the company appears about fair value at a 4.5% discount to where the stock price trades currently. Valuations are imprecise instruments though, rather like a telescope - move a few degrees and end up in a different galaxy. Do keep this in mind.

## The Assumptions

We would point out that the most important inputs to a discounted cash flow are the discount rate and of course the actual cash flows. Part of investing is coming up with your own evaluation of a company's future performance, so try the calculation yourself and check your own assumptions. The DCF also does not consider the possible cyclicality of an industry, or a company's future capital requirements, so it does not give a full picture of a company's potential performance. Given that we are looking at INTEKPLUS as potential shareholders, the cost of equity is used as the discount rate, rather than the cost of capital (or weighted average cost of capital, WACC) which accounts for debt. In this calculation we've used 9.5%, which is based on a levered beta of 1.475. Beta is a measure of a stock's volatility, compared to the market as a whole. We get our beta from the industry average beta of globally comparable companies, with an imposed limit between 0.8 and 2.0, which is a reasonable range for a stable business.

### SWOT Analysis for INTEKPLUS

Strength
• Debt is well covered by earnings.
Weakness
• Dividend is low compared to the top 25% of dividend payers in the Semiconductor market.
Opportunity
• Expected to breakeven next year.
• Has sufficient cash runway for more than 3 years based on current free cash flows.
• Good value based on P/S ratio and estimated fair value.
Threat
• Debt is not well covered by operating cash flow.

## Moving On:

Although the valuation of a company is important, it shouldn't be the only metric you look at when researching a company. DCF models are not the be-all and end-all of investment valuation. Preferably you'd apply different cases and assumptions and see how they would impact the company's valuation. If a company grows at a different rate, or if its cost of equity or risk free rate changes sharply, the output can look very different. For INTEKPLUS, we've put together three fundamental items you should assess:

1. Risks: For example, we've discovered 3 warning signs for INTEKPLUS (2 are concerning!) that you should be aware of before investing here.
