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?

**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

**Next, determine the required return.**For this example the required return is .40 or 40%.

**Next, determine the growth rate.**The growth rate for this example is .20 or 20%.

**Finally, calculate the horizon value.**HV = ( $40,000.00 / (.40-.20) ) = $200,000.00
