The practice of business valuation The first method of business valuation, discounted cash flow (the "DCF"), is based on the idea that the economic value of the asset is equal to the amount of future cash flow Company updated to reflect its risk. The discount rate used is the weighted average cost of capital. Is calculated as follows: • cash flows discounted at the explicit forecast horizon (visibility of the company); • the terminal value from estimating a growth rate to infinity; • the value of equity is the difference between the asset value and the resulting economic value of the bank debt and net financial and possibly other elements. The second evaluation method, the method of multiple analog approach is compared with other companies in the same sector.
