From the Author
In this book I present a sample of some of the scientific techniques used to value 10 different types of businesses. I say ??some?? because I don?t know them all, and because each practitioner employs ??base formulas?? in different ways, often modified by his or her own perceptions in formula use. Because of the ??art form?? necessary to conduct the closely held business valuation especially, the key to successful estimating rests in the ??user,?? not the formula itself.
Causal behavior, sometimes subliminally, is interwoven throughout the book. It is my hope that the reader, who will most likely be a periodic practitioner, will benefit both through enhanced uses of the formulas and in practical applications for negotiating the small-company purchase and sale.
