Question

Estimate company?s FCF for 2011-2015 using the following assumptions: Company?s sales will grow at 4% per year over the next five years; Cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales is expected to increase by 1% each year, i.e., the gross margin ratio will be decreasing by 1% every year; Total CAPEX each year is expected to be equal to 25% of additional sales that year (compared to the previous year); Increase in net working capital in a given year will be equal to 5% of additional sales that year (compared to the previous year); Total depreciation each year will be equal to the total depreciation in a prior year plus 20 % of CAPEX incurred in a prior year (for example, depreciation in 2010 was 16,000 + 20% x 6,000 = 17,200). Since the company is a going concern we need not be concerned about the liquidation value of the firm?s assets at the end of 2015.
