Overview

Most owners and managers operate their businesses year after year without ever knowing what their company is worth, how much more a strategic buyer would pay to acquire it, what factors affect the company's stock value, whether they would be better off selling, and if so, how and when?

Having provided valuation advisory services to thousands of companies and corporate executives, authors and valuation experts Chris Mellen and Frank Evans have developed proven techniques for accurately measuring and successfully building value in your company. Now in a second edition, Valuation for M&A: Building Value in Private Companies provides you with the tools to determine what your company's value is, what drives that value, and how to enhance that value during an M&A transaction and in daily operations—even when no stock price exists.

Now covering fair value accounting and the impact of SFAS Nos. 141 and 157, as well as private capital markets, exit planning, cross-border M&As, and venture-backed/early stage companies, this clear and concise new edition is written for business appraisers, CPAs, investment bankers, venture capitalists, and consultants, as well as for investors and managers of closely held entities.

Complete with a comprehensive case study to illustrate concepts and calculations, Valuation for M&A, Second Edition fills a gap that has long stymied both sides of the M&A equation, handing owners, managers, and strategic buyers the first effective methodology for measuring and building the value of a private company and ensuring that everyone gains the maximum benefit from the deals they make.

The only book to focus on valuation specifically for mergers and acquisitions, Valuation for M&A, Second Edition lays out the steps for measuring and managing value creation in nonpublicly traded entities, and helps investors, executives, and their advisors maximize return on investment and determine the optimum strategy to enhance both market value and strategic value. It provides you with a detailed guide to prepare for the sale and acquisition of your firm, spelling out how to identify, quantify, and qualify the synergies that increase its value to strategic buyers.
