2021 Calculations

1 Retention rate = (Net income – Dividends and dividend rights declared) ÷ Net income
= (2,062651) ÷ 2,062
= 0.68

2 Profit margin = 100 × Net income ÷ Net revenue
= 100 × 2,062 ÷ 9,633
= 21.41%

3 Asset turnover = Net revenue ÷ Total assets
= 9,633 ÷ 15,516
= 0.62

4 Financial leverage = Total assets ÷ Stockholders’ equity
= 15,516 ÷ 9,869
= 1.57

5 g = Retention rate × Profit margin × Asset turnover × Financial leverage
= 0.68 × 21.34% × 0.99 × 2.38
= 34.02%

#### FCFE growth rate (g) implied by single-stage model

g = 100 × (Equity market value0 × r – FCFE0) ÷ (Equity market value0 + FCFE0)
= 100 × (105,169 × 12.93%1,787) ÷ (105,169 + 1,787)
= 11.05%

where:
Equity market value0 = current market value of Intuit Inc. common stock (US\$ in millions)
FCFE0 = the last year Intuit Inc. free cash flow to equity (US\$ in millions)
r = required rate of return on Intuit Inc. common stock

2 g2 28.28%

5 and thereafter g5 11.05%

where:
g1 is implied by PRAT model
g5 is implied by single-stage model
g2, g3 and g4 are calculated using linear interpoltion between g1 and g5

Calculations

g2 = g1 + (g5g1) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 34.02% + (11.05%34.02%) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 28.28%

g3 = g1 + (g5g1) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 34.02% + (11.05%34.02%) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 22.53%

g4 = g1 + (g5g1) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 34.02% + (11.05%34.02%) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 16.79%
