H&R suspension (NYSE ፡ HRB) Bright prospects in the second half of 2022. As the size of the management cryptocurrency increases, the demand for tax planning solutions is expected to increase again. He also announced that the administration would make a strategic transition Develop new technology solutions, which will help the company increase sales growth. Overall, my overall review of my DCF models does not indicate future cash flow potential.
H&R blockchain optimism and stock buying programs can boost market sentiment.
H&R Block helps their customers prepare their taxes, and offers financial products and small business solutions.
In my opinion, this is a good time to review H&R Block’s financial forecast and change plans. Remember that H&R Block has increased its budget for 2022 and announced the launch of a new wave of small businesses. At the same time, retail and crypto upgrades increase the number of opportunities for tax planners such as H&R Block.

The expectations in my view are conservative. The EBITDA margin is expected to be very stable at 24% from 2022 to 2024, and the average operating margin should remain at 20%.
Considering that H&R Block will report positive net income as well as positive cash flow in 2022 and 2023, in my opinion financial analysts may want to look at the DCF model.
The new Transformation Plan and additional banking solutions H&R block could cost $ 29 per share.
After H&R Block announced its new five-year plan to change the strategic direction of the business, I am optimistic about the future. Promised change includes technology infrastructure and human knowledge. In this case, I thought the new changes would help the administration provide a stable EBITDA margin and a positive cash flow.

Finally, in my view, if H&R Block continues to offer interest-free loans to bank partners, credit cards and credit lines, sales growth could also increase. Note that in the near future, when interest rates increase, I expect banks to offer more loan solutions.
RAs are interest-free loans offered by our bank partner at US-owned and virtual franchise sites for US customers.

As the H&R Block is expected to grow by 2% -6%, I try to be a little more optimistic and anticipate some sales growth until 2026. From 2023 to 2031, I used sales growth of -3% to 3%. My figures are not far from what H&R Block reported last time.
And if we take the EBITDA margin of 24% -21% and capital expenditures of about $ 81 million, 2031 free cash flow could reach $ 514 million.
For the H&R Block review, I used 5.03% of the capital expenditure and 5x the traditional exit multiplier, which shows $ 29 per share.
The company has previously traded 8x EBITDA in the future, so if we use this multiplier, the turnover will be $ 39.
The worst case scenario is the $ 10 price tag
Among the mistakes that can be made is the fact that the company is based on information systems. I believe that if customers are unable to upload their information for any reason, or if some information is lost, the reputation of H&R Block may be compromised. As a result, I believe a few customers may leave the company, which could seriously hurt the company’s revenue growth. If the expected cash flow is lower than expected, we may expect the H&R Block price to fall.
As our tax preparation is up-to-date, our systems must be able to run large amounts of time. Therefore, any malfunctions or interruptions in our information system, or our French or private or public third party information systems, or interruptions to the Internet or any other significant business can adversely affect our ability, business and reputation. And it increases our chances of losing. Source desc 10-k
H&R Block seems to be working with a small number of vendors who accept the company’s exclusiveness for certain products. In my view, if H&R Block loses contact with certain providers for any reason, it will be difficult for management to find new partners. In this case, I thought H&R Block would lose some partners, which would hurt the company’s sales growth.
Historically, we have entered into agreements, and in the future we will continue to enter into agreements with one vendor or a limited number of vendors to provide certain key services or products for tax, financial and other services and products. A few examples of this type of dependency are from Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. Or similar providers, data processing and card manufacturing services, MetaBank, NA, connections to RTs, EAs, RAs and Emerald cards and Microsoft. Corporation, for cloud computing services.

In adverse conditions, I used net sales growth of -5% and 5%, EBITDA margin of around 20%, and effective 22% tax. The results show a free cash flow of about $ 400 million and $ 500 million between 2025 and 2031.
With a 20% -15% discount, H&R Block Indirect Market Capitalization will be equal to $ 1.65 billion, and the stated value will be $ 10.
The debt does not seem to matter.
H&R Block reported $ 1 million in cash, $ 3.7 billion in total assets and $ 3.7 billion in total debt. Property / liability ratio is not ideal. However, if the company continues to provide positive cash flow and pays off its debts, I do not expect shareholders to complain.
A.D. H&R Block reported $ 1.7 billion in long-term debt as of March 31, 2022, and $ 499 million in short-term debt. I expect about $ 450-650 million a year in cash flow, so the debt doesn’t seem to matter much. If the EBITDA margin remains stable, investors may not have to worry about the overall benefits.
H&R Block awaits important second half of 2022 The management has recently announced a strategic transformation plan that will bring technological innovation and more human knowledge to the organization. If the company continues to offer interest-free loans to its bank partners, as interest rates increase, I expect further sales growth. Yes, the debt is not small. However, I believe the expected free cash flow is sufficient to ensure total consumption. I do not know why the market offers the current stock price. In my basic case, which is very likely, the value of equity is much higher than the current market value.
