BOO DCF Assumptions

The above are the personal assumptions used in the DCF model. We also used the financial details from the 2022 fiscal year-end. Boohoo’s 2022 fiscal year was for the 12 months ending 28.02.2022.

Boohoo DCF – Base Case Scenario

Boohoo Base Case Revenue Growth Forecast

Boohoo Revenue Growth Forcast - Base Case

The base case scenario assumes revenue growth of 3%, 15%, 13%, 3% and 11%. These assumptions are slightly lower than the average and median of the analysts’ projections.

Based on the assumptions above and the base case revenue growth forecast, the DCF model shows unlevered free cash flow to be negative for the next two years. This then rises to £101 million in 2027.

Boohoo Terminal Value

EV/EBITDA Exit (£m)2,188
Growth Exit (£m)1,610
AVG TERMINAL VALUE (£m)1,899
BOO Terminal Value

Using an EBITDA exit multiple of 8.4x the terminal value is £2,188 million. If we use a perpetual growth rate of 2.% for the terminal value, we get £1,610 million. Therefore, we will use an average of £1,899 million for the terminal value in our model.

Less Debt(152)
Equity Value1,224
Shares Outstanding1267.6
Equity Value Per Share0.9654
BOO Intrinsic Value

This model provides us with a net present value of £1,275 million, adding cash and deducting debt then gives us an equity value of £1,224 million. If we divide the equity value by the current shares outstanding we get an equity value per share of £0.965 or 97p.

Boohoo Intrinsic Value vs Market Value

Based on the current stock price of 78p, there is potentially an 18p or 23.6% upside to the intrinsic value of 97p.

If we take the current market cap, add debt and subtract cash, we get an enterprise value of £1,040 million. We can then use this to calculate the IRR.

Based on the initial investment and the cash flows, we get an IRR of 13.4%

If the stock price drops 20% to 62p per share, we will get an IRR of 18.2% based on this model. If the stock price increase by 20% to 94p, we would get an IRR of 9.6%.
