Valuation by the CEQ Method based on Discrete Scenario Cash Flow Forecast

betacash flowsceqcertain equivalententrepreneurfinancepresent valuesprivate equityvaluation

In the Certain Equivalent (CEQ) Method, expected cash flows of financial claims are valued. Also, risky cash flows are adjusted
to their certain equivalent by CAPM (from σri to σci). The risk free rate is the discount rate. (Diego Zunino, April 2011)

=> It is easier to implement than RADR for new ventures
=> You have the same results with consistent assumptions as RADR (risk adjusted discount rate method)


This model enables you to compute, over 5 years:

- The Estimated Cash Flow For the Project
- The Standard Deviation of Cash Flows
- The Market Risk Premium
- The Present Value of Expected Cash Flows and the Sum of PVs

- The Annualized Required Return
- The Standard Deviation of Returns
- Covariance with Market
- Beta

- Cash Flows (Success Scenario, Expected Scenario, Failure Scenario) - Amount year 0 to 5 + Probability
- Risk free rate
- Market rate
- Market Standard Deviation
- Market Correlation
