- Income Approaches (4 methods)
- Income-based methods determine the probable future income of the business and capitalize this income stream to determine the business' value. The adjusted or normalized income stream, which is the probable future income stream, is determined by adjusting each revenue and expense item on the income statement (to its probable future value over the near term.) Capitalizing the income stream involves determining an appropriate discount rate to apply to the income stream to arrive at its present value. The present value of the income stream in a profitable business is what gives the business its highest and best value. In a profitable, closely held business, income-based methods are usually the best to use.
- Market Approaches (12 methods)
- These methods use data from comparable business sales to determine the value of a business.
- Cost Approaches (3 methods)
- These methods include adjusting each asset and liability on the balance sheet to its fair market value, Values are then summed. This approach ignores the earnings of a business and should receive minimal attention when valuing ongoing closely held businesses that generate earnings by selling products or rendering services. Asset-based methods are appropriate for businesses whose principal function is to manage income-producing assets such as bank holding companies.
