Business Valuation

Value is an opinion, not a fact, an estimate of an individual’s perception – VALUE is what the individual hopes to receive. Business valuation is a process of determining the worth of a business.

Why value the business?

It is used to determine fair value of the business for various reasons and a few of them are as under:

    • To improve the business’s perceived value.
    • Choose a good time to buy or sell.
    • Negotiate better terms in buying or selling
    • Complete a purchase quickly.
  1. Asking Price: It is what the seller wants.
  2. Selling Price: It is what the seller gets.
  3. MPSP: Most Probable Selling Price of a business is the price for which a willing owner will sell to a willing buyer or it is the market value of your business.
  4. Fair Market Value (FMV): It’s the amount at which the property would change hands between willing buyer and willing seller acting with free will without any compulsion having reasonable knowledge of facts.


There are three Approaches for calculating value – the Market Approach, the Income Approach, and the Asset Approach.

1. MARKET Approach

(a) Direct Market Data Method (DMDM)
(b) Merger & Acquisitions Method
(c) Guideline Public Company Method

2. INCOME Approach

(a) Capitalization of Benefits Method
(b) Multiple of Discretionary Earning (DE) Method
(c) Discounted Future Benefits Method

3. ASSET Approach

(a) Net Asset Accumulation Method
(b) Excess Earnings Method
