But I think most young entrepreneurs are challenged to come up with a starting number in negotiation.Calculating value is a pain point and often most people end up trying to understand NPV when there are much simpler ways to do the valuation calculation , like the Simplified Scorecard Method. Ultimately, value is what someone is willing to pay, but everyone should have a starting point.

They often seem to have a value separate from the business. Is there real estate and inventory for re-sale included in the sale? Real estate and inventory for re-sale is theoretically less risky than owning the other assets of a business because it is believed that real estate could be easily sold on the open market and inventory for re-sale could be easy to liquidate if the business failed. Generally, inventory is valued at cost. These assets may be valued separately from the business, and then added back to the multiple-derived value of the business. Aside from real estate and inventory for re-sale, other assets should already be included in the multiple-derived business value as they are needed to generate the projected future earnings.
