How would you go about performing a valuation on (my former small non-public company)?

2 Answers

It depends on the status of the company, the size, and the industry. If its a real estate business, you may use the comparable sales method in which you would examine its holdings, and look at similar recently sold properties' in the area to determine what the fair market value of those properties were. If its a company that was in bankruptcy, you may use the market value of assets method where you find the value of all tangible and intangible assets. If its a thriving small company, you may use the sellers discretionary income multiple method, by determining net income, adding back the owners salary, depreciation and amortization, and other discretionary expenses to determine the true cash flow of the firm and take into account the lifestyle/management style of the owner which can also help one determine the overall risk associated with the company
