Now that we’ve estimated the free cash flow generated over the five-year forecast period, we need to estimate the value of Merck & Co., Inc.’s cash flows after that period (if we don’t include this, we would have to assume that Merck & Co., Inc. stopped operating at the end of the five-year forecast period).
