New additions to ValuAdder V5.5 in 2011

Market Comps industry coverage increased to 425 key industry sectors

In 2011 we have added a number of key industry sectors for your market-based business appraisals.

These include the biotechnology and health sciences companies, a completely revised software industry group with the business and consumer software application and security software sectors, as well as the diversified food products manufacturers.

Valuation multiples across all 425 industry sectors have been fully revised and updated to reflect the changing market conditions for 2011.

All this information is fully integrated into your ValuAdder product to help you avoid costly database subscription fees!

Company size risk premia ranges increased up to $500 million in market capitalization

In 2011 we have added five distinct size risk premia ranges to help you calculate the discount and cap rates precisely for your company.

You can now create highly accurate business appraisals for any private company – from the smallest businesses to mid-market industry leaders with market capitalization up to $500 million!

DLOM and minority discounts

ValuAdder worksheets now feature the discounts for lack of marketability (DLOM) and minority discount data tables.

You can use this essential information when valuing partner’s ownership interests for buy-sell agreements, partner buy-out and more. DLOM is applicable whenever you need to adjust your valuation multiples derived from guideline public companies for use in valuation of privately owned businesses.

Discount and cap rate that are up-to-date

You now have access to the most accurate and up-to-date data to calculate your discount and cap rates – critical to the accuracy of your business appraisals.

Updated Learning and Information Center and Handbook

Here you will find full, up-to-date coverage of all aspects of valuing a business and structuring successful transactions. Now there is added coverage on business valuations across a number of important situations including gift and estate taxes, buy-sell agreements, divorce, Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) and more.

Consult best practices and suggestions on how to comply with all major business valuation standards including USPAP, AICPA SSVS, and International Valuation Standards (IVS).
