CALCULATION OF VALUE ENGAGEMENTS
Could you benefit from a rule-of-thumb or calculation engagement? Owners who need a ballpark value of their company often consider a rule-of-thumb, or range-of-value, engagement. This involves applying high-level industry multiples to your historical information to arrive at a range of values for your company.
A calculation engagement goes deeper than rule of thumb and results in a more customized value for your company. Although it relies on valuation concepts, a calculation is not as in-depth as a valuation. It typically includes an analysis of your company's historical income stream and projections, judgment-based adjustments, and applying a customized capitalization rate to your income stream. Your valuation consultant will provide a formal report with a specific value. These can, in certain situations, provide you with enough analysis of your company's value to move ahead with a sale or acquisition.
