Terminal value

The value of a bond at maturity, typically its par value, or the value of an asset (or an entire firm) on some specified future valuation date. Usually, a perpetuity formula is used. For example, suppose we forecast cash flows through year 10. We make an assumption that year 11 and beyond will be no growth (except for inflation). If the cash flow forecast for year 11 is 100, the firm's discount rate is 12%, and inflation is expected to be 2%, we use the formula V10 = CF11/(disc rate-inflation). Hence, the value is 100/(0.12 - 0.02) that is 1,000. This cash flow needs to be brought back to present value using the formula 1000/(1.12)10, which is 321.97. Note the importance of the inflation assumption.

Terminal Value

1. In accounting, the salvage value.

2. In finance, the present value of future cash flows.

3. In investing, the value of an investment after a given period of time at a given interest rate. The terminal value is calculated in the same way as compound interest.

terminal value

The dollar value of an asset at a specific future time. For example, a $1,000 certificate of deposit that earns an annual return of 9% has a terminal value of $1,539 in five years.

The value after the explicit forecast period is referred to as the Terminal Value. This is generally calculated using the growing perpetuity formula, which assumes that the company's free cash will grow at a constant rate, g, beyond the explicit forecast period (2).
And in most cases, "terminal value" is going to be negative, because the project invested in has run its course and instead of the assets having value for another purpose, you are actually going to have to pay to get rid of them.
The standard approach to estimating the terminal value of the debt and equity assumes the firm reaches a steady state by the terminal date, and computes the terminal values as a FCF perpetuity growing at a constant g, [E.sub.0] [[FCF.sub.T] (1 + g)]/([r.sub.WACC] - g).
