## Present Value of Free Cash Flow to the Firm (FCFF)

Intermediate level

In discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation techniques the value of the stock is estimated based upon present value of some measure of cash flow. Free cash flow to the firm (FCFF) is generally described as cash flows after direct costs and before any payments to capital suppliers.

where:
Total capital, fair value0 = current fair value of Autodesk Inc.’s debt and equity (US\$ in thousands)
FCFF0 = the last year Autodesk Inc.’s free cash flow to the firm (US\$ in thousands)
WACC = weighted average cost of Autodesk Inc.’s capital
