“We utilize a discounted cash flow (DCF)-driven analysis approach to value Repligen shares. Our assessment yields an enterprise value of roughly $5.5B. We utilize a roughly 7.5% discount rate (vs. the previous 9%) and 26% effective tax rate. This yields a market value of the firm of $5.7B, assuming roughly $527M in cash as of mid-2020, which reflects the proceeds from the $287.5M convertible note offering completed in July 2019. Given the projected 52M shares outstanding as of mid-2020, this yields a price objective of roughly $110 per share.”
