"DCF (Discounted Cash Flow) is a method employed to access an investment through the analysis of its expected future cash flow" The discounted cash flow is used to analyze the desirability of an investment opportunity by considering projected future income. For evaluating the investment opportunities, range from 10% to 20% reflecting the investor’s expected rate of return. ## DCF Formula: The discounted cash flow formula equals the sum of all discounted cash flow from the power of different time periods. $$DCF = \frac{CF_1}{(1+r)^1} + \frac{CF_2}{(1+r)^2} + \frac{CF_3}{(1+r)^3} + \ldots + \frac{CF_n}{(1+r)^n}$$ Where: • $$CF_1, CF_2, CF_3, \ldots, CF_n$$ = Expected cash flows at different time periods e.g: year 1, year 2, … • (r) = Discount rate represents the rate of return required by investors or the cost of capital. ## How Do You Calculate DCF (Discounted Cash Flow)? To calculate the discounted cash flow estimate the future cash flow of investors and then discount them back to the present value using the discounted cash flow calculator. ### Practical Example: Consider an investment opportunity in a manufacturing company that projects annual cash flows as follows: • Year 1 =$100,000
• Year 2 = $120,000 • Year 3 =$150,000

Formula: Given a discount rate of 15%, we'll use the discounted cash flow formula: $$DCF = \frac{CF_1}{(1+r)^1} + \frac{CF_2}{(1+r)^2} + \frac{CF_3}{(1+r)^3} + \ldots + \frac{CF_n}{(1+r)^n}$$ Substituting the values: $$P V = \frac{ 100,000}{(1+0.15)^{1}}+\frac{ 120,000}{(1+0.15)^{2}}+\frac{ 150,000}{(1+0.15)^{3}}$$ $$PV = \frac{100,000}{1.15} + \frac{120,000}{(1.15)^2} + \frac{150,000}{(1.15)^3}$$
• Year 1 Cash Flow: $100,000 / (1 + 0.15)^1 =$86,956.52
• Year 2 Cash Flow: $120,000 / (1 + 0.15)^2 =$89,820.69
• Year 3 Cash Flow: $150,000 / (1 + 0.15)^3 =$98,267.72
$$P V \approx  86,956.52 +  89,820.69 +  98,267.72$$ $$P V \approx  275,045.93$$ The DCF calculator simplifies this process, providing valuable insights to aid in investment decision-making. The present value of the investment opportunity is approximately \$275,045.93 indicating a discount rate of 15%.
