We offer the Valuation Process to our customers to help determining how much a business is worth. It´s not simply process as we can imagine. The first problem of business valuation is how to set a value on all the assets of a business, including the intangibles, how much is the goodwill, a business logo, a trademark, new contracts or a client list worth. There are several different business valuation methods that can be used to tackle the problem and attempt to determine a fair price for the business to be sold:
- DCF – Discounted Cash Flow: DCF analysis is a method of valuing a project, company, or asset using the concepts of the time value of money. All future cash flows are estimated and discounted to give their present values (PVs)-the sum of all future cash flows, both incoming and outgoing, is the net present value (NPV), which is taken as the value or price of the cash flows in question. Present value may also be expressed as a number of years` purchase of the future undiscounted annual cash flows expected to arise.
- Asset Accumulation: The Asset Approach is based on the premise that it is generally possible to liquidate the property, plant and equipment (PP&E) assets of a company, and after paying off the company`s liabilities the net proceeds would accrue to the equity of the company.
- Market Value: This valuation method is applicable for quoted companies only. The market value is determined by multiplying the quoted share price of the company by the number of issued shares. This valuation reflects the price that the market at a point in time is prepared to pay for the shares.
- Price Earnings Multiple Valuation: The price-earnings ration (P/E) is simply the price of a company`s share of common stock in the public market divided by its earnings per share. By multiplying this P/E multiple by the net income, the value for the business could be determined. This valuation method provides a benchmark business valuation as the non-listed companies wishing to use this method; a comparable quoted company/sector should be used.
- Valuation based on net worth: The net worth of a business is essentially the difference between what it owns (assets) and what it owes (liabilities). Assets minus liabilities equals net worth. When calculating a business`s net worth, you need to consider both tangible assets (such as machinery and equipment) and intangible assets (such as goodwill and intellectual property).
- Valuation based on annual net profit: Some people prefer to value businesses based on a business`s annual net profit. Many industries have a ratio for valuing a business in this way. For example, the marketplace may value a particular type of business – as long as it`s secure – at 3 times its annual net profit. However, a less secure business in the same industry might sell for only twice the annual net profit.
- Several others methods can be used … : At this point in your valuation of a business, you`ll usually need to select a valuation method or combination of methods. No one method is the solution for any business. It`s usually a combination of methods that the marketplace uses, B4Us – Sunbelt BHBC use 12 methods to get the closest value and so you`ll have a more accurate idea of just what your business is worth and a range of prices that you can use as parameters for your negotiations.
