What is Valuation

Valuation is the method of measuring what a business is worth.  To determine what a company is worth valuation analysts use one of the methods below.

Valuation Methods:

Business valuation methods fall into the following categories:

  • Business assets:  Looks at the book value and liquidation value of your assets.  Either could end up being less than market value for the assets.

  • Historical earnings:  The buyer looks at the past history of the business in order to determine if he/she should buy.  They look at earnings, cash flow, debt, growth, etc.

  • A combination of assets and earnings:  This is the method of combining the value of assets and earnings to determine a good price for the business.

  • The market: Utilizing the industry standard for the type of business you're in.  Looks at comparable sales, industry rule of thumb, p/e ration earnings, etc.

  • Future earnings: This method utilizes projections about future earnings that is discounted to determine the present value of the company.
