QuestionsCategory: Valuation QuadrantWorkshop material, page 83 Nestle case (calculation of Net debt per share)
Tony asked 4 years ago

Hi everyone,
It’s me again. This time, I have a question regarding the case of Nestle on page 83, where the net debt per share is shown to be RM0.74.
I can’t get this calculation from the 18 financial report.
The number of shares, according to page 149, of the report is 234,500,000. By reverse calculation, to get a net debt per share of RM0.74 with 234,500,500 shares, the net debt should be RM173,530,000. However, I can’t seem to find any figure close to this in the STATEMENTS OF FINANCIAL POSITION on page 55.
A little help here please?

Hi Tony,
Under the balance sheet, their cash position is about RM7m and their loan and borrowing is 180.3 under the current liabilities.
RM7m – RM180.3m  = -RM173.3
Number of share is 234.5
So the net debt is -RM173.3/234.5 = -RM0.74
