Common Valuation Methods
Within valuation, there are three common approaches. They are the following:
A business appraiser such as Peak Business Valuation utilizes each approach when determining the value of a business.
Under this approach, a business valuation expert digs into the cash flow of the business. The ability to generate cash flow each year ultimately impacts the value of your company. As such, when you are building your business, consider the value proposition of growing your cash flow.
Rarely, is the asset approach relied upon for purposes of understanding the value of your company. However, there are instances where this approach makes sense. For instance, a business appraiser uses the asset approach for asset-intensive businesses. For example, manufacturing companies or businesses with heavy research and development costs. As the approach suggests, the value of your business is derivable from understanding the value of your assets. The idea is to determine the fair market value of your assets less liabilities.
This approach is the most widely used and understood. When you want to know the value of your house or car, you do some quick research and find comparable cars or homes in your local area. The market-based approach is just that. This approach looks for comparable companies that are similar to your business.
Before seeking an expert’s opinion, you should understand how to value your business and why it matters.
