At AVA, we have years of experience and use best practices to determine the estimated value of a company at a specific point in time. There are three primary approaches to consider when determining a company’s value:
Income Approach: The income approach weights the expected benefits from investing in the company against the require return for assuming the risk and uncertainty associated with it. This approach can account for changes in revenue growth, working capital needs, future capital expenditures, and differences in financing.
Market Approach: The market approach evaluates a company based on completed transactions of comparable companies.
Asset Approach: The asset approach measures the fair market value of a company’s assets minus its liabilities. This approach is frequently used for underperforming companies and is not recommended for companies with a high intangible value.
