    Hi Chandoo,

    a nice model, thank you very much for all your ideas,
    well done,

    friendly greetings, Mike

  2. Just to make readers aware - This model is built using the standard steps that have been outlined in our financial modeling overview. Essentially the steps are very logical and intuitive!
    1) Create model for historical statements (P&L and B/S) - We just picked from the DRHP of CIL
    2) See the historical growth drivers (growth in revenue, most of the costs as %age of revenue, days of inventory, receivables, etc.)
    3) Project them in future (Here you need an experience in the industry and a view on how well the co./sector would be able to do)
    4) Project future P&L and B/S
    5) Project the cash flow statement
    6) Calculate key ratios for co. analysis (profitability, liquidity, etc.)
    7) Calculate value of firm through FCFF and comps

    Each of these steps can be learnt by following a disciplined approach...

    Feel free to discuss or raise your questions on the model/ modeling technique.

    HI Chandoo
    For the terminal value calculation should you not make the fixed capital investment and depreciation equal on the assumption that you will replace assets going forward
    Secondly not sure how the array table works - new at array tables - where do I find info on the TABLE function that you utilize as I cannot find it in Excel 2003 standard functions.
    By the way excel school is excellent - good job
    Regards, Bruce

    The Data Table is not an Excel Function in the normal coarse of things, it is a menu Item and is on the Data, What If Analysis Tab.
    It has been available since at least 1995

    For more on the Data Table function have a read of

    Hi guys, apologies as this is really an basic question....

    how did you block the view in the first 3 sheets?


  7. Pawan says:


    To protect a sheet simply go to Review Tab and Protect Sheet. Uncheck all the boxes and give a password. If you further want to protect the structure of the Workbook, go to Review tab and Protect Workbook using a password.

    Hi Chandoo,

    I have few queries from the IPO valuation of Coal India.
    1. Where did you account for the proceeds from the IPO in the projections?

    2. In the worksheet, in the 'Valuation' sheet, where did you get the No. of Shares Outstanding (6316)? Are these no. of shares outstanding pre-IPO or post-IPO?

    3. At last you calculated, Rs. 263 as price per share. Does it mean that this should be the price at which the IPO should be launched? Generally in IPOs we see a price band, how do we calculate the price band?
    Request you to kindly explain the above points using the Coal India sheet.


  9. Dear Ankur,

    We have a detailed course on valuation, where we cover these aspects in detail. We have a full coverage of Coal India valuation (At the time of their IPO) covered in one of the weeks. You can consider the course on:
