Valuation Calculators

Valuation of startup and emerging companies with most having negative cash
flow in early stages with significant projected rewards later is very difficult task.
Yet investors are confronted frequently with investments whose current value
must be estimated in spite of the fact that much of the reward lies in future.

Following are some of the most commonly used methods for valuation of startup
and emerging companies. There are various different approaches to
estimating the value of a startup company.

Income Approach: Estimating future cash flow that could be taken out of the
business without impairing future operations. Most common methods in this
approach are: Net Present Value, Equity Cash Flow and Capital Cash Flow
(Adjusted Cash Flow being a variation of this method).

Market Approach: Estimates the value of a going concern business by comparing
to similar firms whose stock is publicly traded. In many cases Market Approach is
used as a secondary valuation method to verify the estimates derived from the
Income Approach.

Asset Approach: valuation based on the firm as a financial option.
