From the Inside Flap
Discounts and Premiums
Discounts and premiums do not just affect the value of a company; they play a crucial role in influencing a host of other factors and conditions that can make or break a deal. When it comes to business valuations, it's the business appraiser's responsibility to be intimately knowledgeable with every aspect of discounts and premiums: the different types, the situations when they may or may not apply, and how to quantify them.
In this newly updated edition of Business Valuation: Discounts and Premiums, Shannon Pratt-one of the nation's most recognized and respected business valuation consultants-brings together the latest collective wisdom and knowledge about all major business discounts and premiums.
Addressing the three basic approaches to conducting a valuation-the income approach, the market approach, and the asset approach-Shannon Pratt deftly and logically details the different discounts or premiums that may be applicable, depending on the basic valuation approach used, and how the valuation approaches used affect the level.
