Valuation Approaches 

The standard of value reported is based on the fair market value of equity on a non marketable, controlling basis, whereby:

  • Fair market value (“FMV”): The price of an asset would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge of relevant facts.
  • Controlling basis: In most cases, ownership of more than 50 per cent of a company’s voting stock or any shareholding will result in the control of the composition of the directors.
  • Enterprise value (“EV”): The sum of the company’s total market value of equity (“MVE”) (also known as market capitalisation with regard to listed companies) plus preferred stock and net debt.
  • Equity value: Total EV less net debt.
  • Net debt : Short term debt plus long term debt less cash and cash equivalents.
  • Marketability: The ability to realise the value of the shareholding within short time frame.

Our commercial approach will help provide an objective evaluation of your company to provide the most accurate benchmark figure.
