Formula for Annual Contract Value (ACV)

Annual Contract Value (ACV) = (Total Contract Value / Number of Years in Contract)

How to Determine ACV

  • Identify Total Contract Value: Sum all revenue from the contract.
  • Determine Contract Term: Calculate the length of the contract in years.
  • Calculate ACV: Divide total contract value by the contract term in years.

Understanding ACV

Annual Contract Value (ACV) is a vital metric for gauging the yearly revenue generated from each customer contract. It plays a key role in evaluating how individual deals contribute to the company’s overall revenue, making it indispensable for financial health assessment.

Why ACV Matters

  • Revenue Predictability: ACV offers insights into future revenue streams, essential for long-term planning.
  • Customer Value Insight: Helps in identifying high-value customers for targeted marketing efforts.
  • Strategic Decision Making: Influences product development and market approach strategies.

Real-world Example: ACV in Action

Consider a software company with a 3-year contract worth $90,000. By dividing the total contract value by the contract term, the ACV is calculated as $30,000.
