#### Formula:

c = m* ((r/100) / (1+(d/100) - (r/100)))
**Where,**
c = Customer Lifetime Value
m = Gross Margin
r = Monthly Retention Rate
d = Monthly Discount Rate
In other words, it can be termed as the life time value of a customer relationship. The LCV (Customer Life time value) model has three arguments to be considered which includes margin, retention rate and discount rate. Calculating CLV varies for simple and complex models.

#### Example

**The Life time customer value (CLV) for a business with gross margin 1000 $ , retention rate of 5 % and discount rate of 3 % is**

= 1000 * {(5 / 100) / [(1+(2/100)) - (5 /100)]}

= 51.02 $

Therefore, the CLV value is 51.02 $
