2023 Calculations

2 Interest expense, after tax = Interest expense × (1 – EITR)
= 550,100 × (1 – 23.60%)
= 420,276

3 EBIT(1 – EITR) = Net earnings attributable to Starbucks + Interest expense, after tax
= 4,124,500 + 420,276
= 4,544,776

4 RR = [EBIT(1 – EITR) – Interest expense (after tax) and dividends] ÷ EBIT(1 – EITR)
= [4,544,7762,894,876] ÷ 4,544,776
= 0.36

5 ROIC = 100 × EBIT(1 – EITR) ÷ Total capital
= 100 × 4,544,776 ÷ 7,371,400
= 61.65%

6 g = RR × ROIC
= 0.40 × 51.35%
= 20.74%


FCFF growth rate (g) implied by single-stage model

g = 100 × (Total capital, fair value0 × WACC – FCFF0) ÷ (Total capital, fair value0 + FCFF0)
= 100 × (102,795,749 × 11.60%4,075,665) ÷ (102,795,749 + 4,075,665)
= 7.34%

where:

Total capital, fair value0 = current fair value of Starbucks Corp. debt and equity (US$ in thousands)
FCFF0 = the last year Starbucks Corp. free cash flow to the firm (US$ in thousands)
WACC = weighted average cost of Starbucks Corp. capital
