Growth Rate Assumed by Market

We did a reverse valuation to calculate the growth rate the market is assuming for ICON to be considered fairly valued at its current market price. It's useful to compare this to the growth rate we're assuming for the Growth Price.

Future Free Cash Flow Growth Rate

This is the annual growth rate we've applied to calculate ICON's Free Cash Flow for the next 10 years. To calculate it, we looked at several time periods of the last 10 years. Feel free to adjust it, but we limit the initial growth rate to 20% and slow it down over the years. Otherwise, long-term sustainability issues come into play.

Discount Rate

The discount rate is the annual rate of return an investor requires to take the risk of investing in a single stock. To account for that risk, this should be above 8-10%, as this is the avg. annual rate of return for the S&P500 over the past 100 years.

Poor Cash Return on Invested Capital over the past 5 years

ICON has been unable to consistently generate sufficient returns from its investments in buildings, projects and equipment. This could be due to poor management, lack of an economic moat or the capital intensive nature of the business.

ICON has only created $8.01 of cash for every $100 invested.

Very Poor Return on Equity over the past 5 years

ICON has shown an inability to deliver results for shareholders. This could be due to poor management, ICON operating in a highly competitive industry, or having a weak business in general.

ICON has generated a $11.08 loss for every $100 of Shareholders' Equity.

Excellent Business Performance over the past 10 years

ICON has been able to maintain profitability in good times and bad. This could mean ICON has an extremely strong business or has the ability to scale down costs when needed. This should be a fairly resilient business, but double check for future sustainability by looking at its Risk Factors in the Annual Report.

ICON has created positive free cash flow for 9 or more of the past 10 years.

Weak Balance Sheet

ICON's financial position is not ideal. The key is to check whether ICON is using debt to fuel its growth and the sustainability of that tendency. Highly capital intensive businesses (see Economic Moat) follow this route, which can deeply impact the future prospects of the business.

Consistent Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

ICON has consistently retained profits. This may put ICON in a strong position to invest for the future, by buying new machinery, investing in R&D or a number of other options. By effectively using these earnings, ICON can greatly improve their long-term economic picture.

Inconsistent Net Profit Margins over the past 10 years

ICON potentially has a competitive advantage, however inconsistent profit margins are a cause for concern. Look at reasons for this inconsistency to determine the likelihood of future sustainability.

$15.50 of every $100 of Revenue have been pure profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Strong Pricing Power over the past 10 years

ICON has maintained substantial gross margins, suggesting that they have been able to set prices without consideration of the cost of goods sold. This potentially leaves flexibility in inflationary environments to raise prices on consumers and maintain profitability.

$100.00 of every $100 worth of sales have been Gross Profit, on average over the past 10 years.

Low Capital Intensity over the past 10 years

ICON has consistently used a small portion of their Net Income buying new equipment or investing in new facilities. This indicates that ICON may require minimal investment to stay competitive. This leaves them with extra money to spend on growing their business and potentially buying back stock.

4.11% of Profits are being spent on Capital Expenditures, like Property, Plant, & Equipment, required to run the business.

History of Stock Buybacks over the past 10 years

ICON has some history of delivering increased value for shareholders in the form of stock buybacks. These have helped improve financial metrics and increase each shareholders' relative ownership stake in the company, due to fewer shares outstanding and holding the same number of shares.

(ICON)http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=ICON+Key+Statistics has a total debt to equity ratio of greater than 100, plus their P/E ratio is > 3, so I would be careful but if you look at their profile they have recognizable brands under their portfolio.

To start a new company implies a $55/share value; however, the following must be considered:

Very high CEO compensation history
The CEO/chairman, COO and CFO quits
SEC investigation for accounting issues at the beginning of 2015 Significant lowering of earnings guidance
Decline of men’s brands

Maybe a good company for an upcoming buy-out.
