Thinking of Buying or Selling a business?

There is no topic about which greater differences of informed opinion may exist than the value of a business or shares in a private company.  The value of a business is naturally influenced by the willingness or a vendor to sell and a purchaser to buy.  In assessing business or share valuations there are a few usual methods that are considered:

  • Capitalisation of future maintainable earnings
  • Capitalisation of future dividends
  • Discounted cash flow
  • Net assets value
  • Liquidation value
  • Tangible/fixed assets plus goodwill based on super profits
  • Market based
