Definition of goodwill accounting Terms

Valuation: Cash Flow Discounting  July 18, 2012 – 06:52 pm
Goodwill is an accounting term used to reflect the portion of the market

The discounted valuation technique (DCF) is the backbone of modern finance and even modern business. DCF permits to measure investments, analysing in and out cash flows, and when applied to company valuations defines the intrinsic value of a company (as an alternative to market valuations like comparable companies and precedent transactions). To understand DCF, is important to have a perspective of the company based on the following variables:

  • 4 variables from the Balance Sheet: any investment can be seen as an increase the assets, net working capital or net fixed assets, and will be financed with liabilities, debt or equity
  • 6 variables from the P&L: the net profit derives from the following variable, Sales, Cost of Good Sold, Selling/General/Administration, Depreciation/Amortization, Interest/Non Operating Expenses,  and Taxes

Now that we have defined the 10 variables that define the finance story of a company, we can combine them to define different types of cash flows:

  • Equity Cash Flow: we know that, Cash + NWC + NFA = D + E. The differential format of the previous formula is: ∆Cash + ∆NWC + ∆NFA = ∆D + ∆E. If we assume that: 1) cash is going only to the stock holders, and not to the operations, ECF=∆Cash, 2) the ∆E is generated only by the NP. We have:  ECF= NP – ∆NWC – ∆NFA + ∆D

Enron eMail from Sherron Watkins
Dear Mr. Lay,
Has Enron become a risky place to work? For those of us who didn't get rich over the last few years, can we afford to stay?
Skilling's abrupt departure will raise suspicions of accounting improprieties and valuation issues. Enron has been very aggressive in its accounting--most notably the Raptor transactions and the Condor vehic...talized with Enron stock.' . . . . . 'No, no, no, you must have it all wrong, it can't be that, that's just too bad, too fraudulent, surely AA & Co. wouldn't let them get away with that?' 'Go back to the drawing board, it's got to be something else. But find it!' . . . . . 'Hey, just in case you might be right, try and find some insiders or 'redeployed' former employees to validate your theory.'
