YouTube Case Study: Estimating Base Year Cash Flow 1. (Revenue/Month) YouTube = (Revenue/Unique Visitor/Month) About.com x YouTube Unique Visitors/Month = $.15 x 34 million = $5.1 million 1. (Net Income/Month) YouTube = (Revenue/Month) YouTube x Google net profit margin = $5.1 million x .25 = $1.28 million 3. Assuming depreciation equal capital spending and Δworking capital zero, then base year free cash flow to equity (FCFE) is FCFE FullYear = (Net Income/Month) YouTube x 12 = $1.28 million x 12 = $15.4 million
