Hi Jim,

This is the quick model I ran for LQDT deep dive. At an 11% discount rate, I backed into a 2% growth rate to calculate a value of roughly $15 per share (about what the stock was trading for at the time). However, if I drop the terminal value to zero and up the discount rate to 15%, my value per share dropps to $11. Big difference. Also, I admit to not yet having completed question #5 of this week's homework via my model, so it's always possible my math is wrong as well!

Also, for MUE analysis, are you including net cash in the computations, or are you looking purely at the baked-in growth rates on TTM FCF?
