how do you calculate PV ratio?

What do you mean by "PV" Is it Present Value, which takes some nominal amount in the future and divides by an appropriate discount rate. Or does your PV mean Profit Volume, which is profits (possibly without regard to fixed costs) divided by revenue. Or, does your PV mean something else?
