The resulting value is the present value of the company's free cash flow. You can change any model inputs below.

## DCF Value Calculation

Depending on which type of operating model is chosen (equity or whole firm valuation model), the resulting value is either the value of equity or the value of the entire firm. In the case of the latter, to move from the value of the firm to the value of equity, liabilities are subtracted and assets are added.

Knowing the full range of possible stock DCF values gives a complete picture of the investment risks and opportunities.

**1. Present Value Calculation.** Using the DCF Operating Model we project
**California Resources Corp**'s future free cash flow and discount it at a selected discount rate to calculate its
**Present Value (4.7B USD)**.

**2. DCF Value Calculation.** We use the company's capital structure to calculate the total Equity Value based on the previously computed Present Value of the free cash flow. Dividing the Equity Value by the number of shares outstanding gives us the **DCF Value of
60.32 USD**
per one
