Enter the annual cash flow beyond a certain time, the required return, and the growth rate to determine the horizon value.

## Horizon Value Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a horizon value.

HV = ACF / (RR – GR)

• Where HV is the horizon value
• ACF is the annual cash flow beyond a certain time
• RR is the required rate of return
• GR is the growth rate

## Horizon Value Definition

A horizon value is the expected value of a security or investment at a future date.

## Horizon Value Example

How to calculate a horizon value?

1. First, determine the annual cash flow.

This will be the assumed cash flow for the foreseeable future. For this example, this value is \$40,000.00

2. Next, determine the required return.

For this example the required return is .40 or 40%.

3. Next, determine the growth rate.

The growth rate for this example is .20 or 20%.

4. Finally, calculate the horizon value.

HV = ( \$40,000.00 / (.40-.20) ) = \$200,000.00
