A number of entities is interested in business enterprise value; primarily, the shareholders, both the current as well as the future ones. They expect security and increase in the value of their investments, as well as income through regular payment of the owner’s fees. Furthermore, potential investors, creditors, lenders and other business partners, as well as managers in charge of business operations and growth and the employees, are also interested in business enterprise value. Finally, the state, which collects social welfare expenditures and measures its wealth in the value of businesses that are part of its economy, is also interested in business enterprise value.
How much is a company worth? There is no unique formula to calculate this. The starting point is certainly the purpose for which the appraisal is made, and it is always based on taking into consideration the combined static and dynamic value of a business entity. The most common method to determine business enterprise value is the discounted cash flow method (the DCF method). The concept of the economic value of assets is based on the assessment of risk and future cash flows, and is always based on a combination of various methods applicable in specific conditions. Evaluation and assessment of business enterprise value requires a high level of expertise and in most cases a multi-disciplinary approach of a number of experts, their teamwork, the ability of economic analysis and projections of future operations with the principle of cautious planning.
