Valuation At this point, I usually value the business by forecasting cash flows for 10 years and estimating the net present value. HBC's financial statements intertwine both real estate and retail operations, which makes it difficult to analyse.

Conflict and Competition Before long, traders at the Bay posts noticed increased competition from French traders, who chose to ignore the claims of Great Britain in their quest for the thick pelts available from the cold northern regions.

A York boat could carry four tons of cargo, about three times that of a trade canoe. Of these some were distributed for public relations purposes, the remainder being sold in the Bay's retail stores. History Beginnings: 17th Century In the 17th century, the fur trade emerged as a major commercial enterprise in North America due to European demand for felt hats made from beaver fur.

They managed to raise money to bring a ship load of furs back to England, and convince merchants to invest in the fur trade.

The company also engaged in petroleum and natural gas ventures, remained involved in real estate, and branched out into financial services. I would almost argue that HBC's primary business is real estate.
