calculation of net cash

QuestionsCategory: Valuation Quadrantcalculation of net cash
Hendra Wijaya asked 4 years ago

Hi Team,

In many of the examples to calculate the intrinsic value of a company, the Net Cash position was used to be added/subtracted from the PE valuation method.
Is the Net Cash calculated based on taking the total cash position minus total liabilities?
Thanks for your kind clarification.
 
Regards,
Hendra

Hi Hendra,
 
The net cash position is taking the total cash minus the total debt

Hi Victor, when I check the excel financial analysis formula, it is using debt minus cash which gives a negative result. Is it an error?
