OVERVALUED (i.e., stock is trading for a higher price than you calculate)

UNDERVALUED (i.e., stock is trading for a lower price than you calculate)

a]

EBITDA multiple = EV / EBITDA

Average EBITDA multiple = 4.63

b]

EV of Stillwater Energy = EBITDA of Stillwater Energy * average industry EBITDA multiple

EV of Stillwater Energy = \$150 million * 4.63 ==> \$694,219,989

c]

Equity value = Enterprise Value – total debt + cash

Equity value = \$694,219,989 - \$75.00 million + \$150.95 million ==> \$770,169,989

d]

Price per share = equity value / number of shares outstanding

Price per share = \$770,169,989 / 100 million ==> \$7.71

e]

If Stillwater Energy’s current stock price is \$4.98 per share, then it is undervalued as the value per share calculated based on equity value is \$7.71
