* Income Approach values a business or asset based on its

expected future cash flow. When determining the business enterprise value,

expected future cash flow represents cash flow available to debt and equity holders.

Through the flow-of-funds identity and the capital accumulation equation, Larrain and Yo develop a present-value model that relates the market value of corporate assets to its

expected future cash flow. The relevant measure of cash flow is net payout, which is the sum of dividends, interest, and net equity and debt repurchases.

Under the WACC method, a valuation expert values the entire business by calculating the present value of

expected future cash flow, excluding only return of equity payments and payments relating to funding sources that pay interest (i.e., interest-bearing debt).

We regress changes in annual cash dividend levels against various control variables and a surrogate for both the earnings effect and the

expected future cash flow effects of LIFO adoption.

Key determinants of a business' value are:

expected future cash flow, income, net assets, depth of management, competition, customer base, and employee relations.

'Given our current public market equity valuation, our cash balance and

The

expected future cash flow is calculated by multiplying the probability-weighted cash flow by the probability of each course of action, as follows:

* Tabular presentation of

expected future cash flow amounts and related contract terms categorized by expected maturity dates.

Unreal G/L (OCI) (150,000) Because intrinsic value equals the future cash to be received over the term of the cap, gain or loss on the cap would equal the cumulative change in

expected future cash flow. Therefore, to adjust cumulative OCI to the cumulative change in cash flow of the hedged transaction, the change in the cap that represents intrinsic value ($150,000) would be included in OCI, while the part of the change that represents a decrease in time value ($40,000) would be included in current earnings (P&L).

A question arises as to the frequency and appropriate level of detail required in scheduling out the

expected future cash flow streams.
