An enterprise valuation or appraisal is the independent and unbiased process of determining a supportable opinion of the value of a company, ownership interest, security or intangible assets as of a specified date.

All enterprise valuations are performed by qualified, professional appraisers experienced in all aspects of enterprise valuation and ownership transfers. Our valuations are performed in compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice of the Appraisal Foundation (USPAP) as well as the Business Appraisal Standards of the Institute of Business Appraisers. Compliance with industry standards ensures that proven peer-reviewed valuation methods are used to develop defendable opinions of value. Through participation in teleconferences and annual valuation conferences, Murphy appraisers stay abreast of developing valuation issues and related court cases.

Our Valuation Methods include:

  • Market Methods – utilizing several different databases of market comps including Pratt Stats, Institute of Business Appraiser’s, Bizcomps, Business Brokers of Florida, and the MidMarketComps database. Multiples of discretionary earnings are used as well as other cash flow multiples. When applicable, sophisticated statistical techniques such as data modeling and linear regression analysis are also used with the market method to provide superior results.
  • Income Approach – Single Period Capitalization Method or Multiple Period Capitalization Method (DCF Model)
  • Adjusted Book Value Method with Excess Earnings
  • Public Company Guideline Method – used for larger companies
  • Analysis of prior sales of stock of the company
