The data is incomplete.

To calculate the value of the firm and value of equity, you need to calculate FCFF. The data is missing.

Bring to present the FCFF stream with wacc rate in order to calculate value of the firm. Then, substract the value of debt and you will have value of equity.

You need to learn all possible derivatives of FCFF formula and FCFE here is an example

FCFF = NI + NCC + Int(1 – Tax rate) – FCInv – WCInv

FCFF = CFO + Int(1 – Tax rate) – FCInv

FCFF= EBIT*(1-t) +D&A- FCInv – WCInv
