Leading authority Shannon Pratt demystifies discounts and premiums in business valuation "A must-read! Shannon Pratt continues to add to the business valuation body of knowledge." -Jay Fishman, FASA There is often more money in dispute in determining the discounts and premiums in a business valuation than in arriving at the pre-discount value itself. Discounts and premiums affect not only the value of the company, but also play a crucial role in determining the risk involved, control issues, marketability, and contingent liability, to name a few. Approaching a business valuation without a thorough understanding of all the ins and outs of discounts and premiums can cause a deal to topple like a house of cards. Business guru Shannon Pratt's critically acclaimed Business Valuation: Discounts and Premiums, Second Edition compiles all the key information practitioners need to successfully and accurately determine discounts and premiums in business valuation. Thoroughly updated throughout, this must-have tool of the trade for business appraisers, accountants, attorneys, and business owners now includes: New database chapters that help quantify the discount for lack of marketability Analysis of the most comprehensive database, with over 5,000 entries on transactions in minority interests in private company stocks prior to an IPO Scores of valuable court case citations Court cases covering divorces, gift, estate, income taxes, bankruptcies, corporate and partnership dissolutions, and ESOPs Many new, never-before-published studies providing real-world benchmarks that can be applied to the practitioner's own cases Learn how to master the complex issues of business valuation and capitalize on the numerous uses for discounts and premiums with the help of the most recognized authority on business valuation, Shannon Pratt.

You'll find information on valuing and its applications, case studies on small and midsize businesses, and a detailed analysis of the latest market approach developments, as well as: A critique of US acquisitions over the last twenty-five years An analysis of the effect of size on value Common errors in applying the market approach Court reactions to the market approach and information to help you avoid being blindsided by a litigation opponent Must reading for anyone who owns or holds a partial interest in a small or large business or a professional practice, as well as for CPAs consulting on valuations, appraisers, corporate development officers, intermediaries, and venture capitalists, The Market Approach to Valuing Businesses will show you how to successfully reach a fair agreement-one that will satisfy both buyers and sellers and stand up to scrutiny by courts and the IRS.
