Overview

Handbook of Business Valuation Second Edition Welcome to the Second Edition of the most complete guide to business valuation currently available. Like its critically acclaimed predecessor, this revised and updated edition contains contributions written by nearly 50 top consultants, appraisers, intermediaries, attorneys, CPAs, and other experts who share their expertise and knowledge in all aspects of business valuation. The Second Edition of the Handbook of Business Valuation begins with the reasons to value a business and who should do it. It continues with business valuation from many perspectives, covering all aspects from recasting the financial statements (finding the hidden value of a business) and all of the methods used to value a business. Also included is the new but often-used Multiple of Discretionary Earnings Method, an Income Approach. The book's emphasis is on the practical aspects of business valuation. The contributors are practitioners and experts, so the information is hands-on. You'll find:
* In-depth coverage of established practices and techniques, including statistical techniques, machinery and equipment valuation, how to use market data, plus many others
* Step-by-step guidance on performing valuations for a vast range of business types and industries, including retail, manufacturing, hotels, restaurants, publishing, and more
* A gold mine of information covering all phases of the valuation process written by experts in each area
* Up-to-the-minute coverage of valuation information, including the use and abuse of expert witnesses, and where to find industry information and market data
The Second Edition of the Handbook of Business Valuation is an indispensable tool of the trade for both new and experienced business appraisers. It is also a valuable working reference for accountants, CPAs, attorneys, business brokers, intermediaries, and anyone involved in business transactions.
