Defining and allocating going-concern value components.
The information in this article is intended to apply primarily to the valuation of smaller, closely held A phrase used to describe the ownership, management, and operation of a corporation by a small group of people.
In a closely held corporation, the same people often act as shareholders, directors, and officers, and no outside investors exist. (not publicly traded) going-concerns in which real estate is a significant asset (typically owned in fee simple); however, most of these concepts also could apply in varying degrees to other business and asset types. Due to the complexity of these types of assignments and the variability of information available in each case, the applicability of the information presented here will vary on a case-by-case basis.

Because the various assets of a going-concern have different remaining economic lives and risk levels, prudent debt and equity investors need to be aware of the relative magnitudes of the risk and value components of a going-concern. Thus, in order for an appraiser A person selected or appointed by a competent authority or an interested party to evaluate the financial worth of property.
Appraisers are frequently appointed in probate and condemnation proceedings and are also used by banks and real estate concerns to determine the market to emulate or explain rational market behavior, going-concern appraisal assignments may require that all major components of value be identified, classified, and separately measured.

In the business community, there is considerable misunderstanding regarding the concepts of going-concern, going-concern value, business value, and goodwill. Some definitions and explanations of these items are meaningful and others lack specificity and usefulness. Rabianski has pointed out deficiencies in some appraisal definitions and publications, as well as some vital technical differences between real estate appraisal Real estate appraisal

Other theorists enjoy vacillating amongst the wide array of interactive forces involving large shopping malls and business enterprise value.
From an appraisal perspective, the concepts of going-concern and going-concern value are defined and discussed as follows:
Going-concern value is the value of a proven property operation. It includes the incremental Additional or increased growth, bulk, quantity, number, or value; enlarged.
Incremental cost is additional or increased cost of an item or service apart from its actual cost. value associated with the business concern, which is distinct from the value of the real estate. Going-concern value includes an intangible enhancement of the value of an operating business enterprise, which is produced by the assemblage assemblage: see collage.
Three-dimensional construction made from household materials such as rope and newspapers or from any found materials. of the land, building, labor, equipment, and the marketing operation. This process creates an economically viable business that is expected to continue. Going-concern value refers to the total value of a property, including both real property and intangible personal property attributed to business value. [emphasis added]
Going-concern appraisals are commonly conducted for hotels and motels, restaurants, bowling alleys, industrial enterprises, retail stores, shopping centers shopping center, a concentration of retail, service, and entertainment enterprises designed to serve the surrounding region. The modern shopping center differs from its antecedents—bazaars and marketplaces—in that the shops are usually amalgamated into , and similar properties. For these types of property, the physical real estate assets are integral parts of an ongoing business. It may be difficult to separate the market value of the land and the building from the total value of the business, but such a division of realty realty n. a short form of "real estate." (See: real estate)

The discussion above is quite specific and very useful to those performing or using going-concern valuations. However, the following definition of going-concern value lacks specificity and appears to be inconsistent with the previous definition:
The value created by a proven property operation; considered as a separate entity to be valued with a specific establishment.(5)
The same source defines business value as:
A value enhancement that results from items of intangible personal property such as marketing and management skill, an assembled work force, working capital, trade names, franchises, patents, trademarks, contracts, leases, and operating agreements An operating agreement is an agreement among limited liability company ("LLC") members governing the LLC's business, and Member's financial and management rights and duties. No state requires an LLC to have an Operating agreement. .(6)
This definition does not indicate whether goodwill is included in "business value," but clearly goodwill results, in part, from the factors listed. However, this definition appropriately refers to business value as consisting of "intangible personal property." The Dictionary defines goodwill as "a salable sal·a·ble also sale·a·ble
Offered or suitable for sale; marketable.
sala·bil business asset based on reputation, not physical assets."(7) This definition is of very limited usefulness to appraisers and users of appraisal services.
Another source presents two distinct definitions of going-concern value, as follows:
1. The value of an enterprise, or an interest therein, as a going-concern.
2. Intangible elements of value in a business enterprise resulting from factors such as: having a trained work force; an operational plant; and the necessary licenses, systems and procedures in place.(8)
The first of these conforms to the first definition presented (this includes both tangible and intangible assets Intangible Asset
An asset that is not physical in nature.
Examples are things like copyrights, patents, intellectual property, and goodwill. These are the opposite of tangible assets. ), and the second appears to be referring only to what was previously defined as "business value" (intangible assets only). These two definitions apparently result from differing concepts of going-concern value as derived in various court cases and used by various legal jurisdictions around the country. Appraisers should be aware of these varying definitions and adjust their work accordingly.
Common legal definitions of going-concern value are:
The value of a firm, assuming that the firm's organization and assets remain intact and are used to generate future income and cash flows. The value which inheres in a company where its business is established, as distinguished from one which has yet to establish its business.
The value of the assets of a business as an operating, active concern, rather than merely as items of property (book value of property alone) which would be the case in a liquidation sale liquidation sale liquid (US) n → Verkauf m wegen Geschäftsaufgabe . Such value includes goodwill.(9)
The same source contains a very useful and lengthy definition of goodwill, from which some relevant excerpts are presented below:
Property of an intangible nature, commonly defined as the expectation of continued public patronage. [emphasis added]
The excess of cost of an acquired firm or operating unit operating unit

ABOUT THE DEFINITIONS
For the purposes of this article, going-concern value denotes the operational value of the total enterprise, including tangible assets Tangible Asset
An asset that has a physical form such as machinery, buildings and land.
This is the opposite of an intangible asset such as a patent or trademark. Whether an asset is tangible or intangible isn't inherently good or bad. (land, improvements, and personal property) and intangible assets (including goodwill, if any). Business value or business operation value denotes all intangible assets except goodwill. Goodwill value denotes the capitalized value capitalized value n. anticipated earnings which are discounted (given a lower value) so that they represent a more realistic current value since projected earnings do not always turn out as favorably as expected or hoped. of excess net income.
An important distinction between business value and goodwill value is that business value is a direct result of specific costs for intangible items required to create the going-concern, whereas goodwill value is not directly associated with any particular initial costs. Further, goodwill value (as evidenced by excess income) is not essential in order for a going-concern to be economically feasible, that is, to provide a reasonable return on and return of the invested capital (including the costs to create the required intangibles). Goodwill does result from a combination of the tangible and other intangible assets of the going-concern, but the incurrence of the required initial costs to create these tangible and intangible assets does not imply an economic requirement that goodwill value should exist, as in the case of the other asset types.
RECOMMENDED INCOME ALLOCATION TECHNIQUE
This technique is an extension of the excess earnings method commonly used by business appraisers for valuing closely held companies Closely held company
A company who has a small group of controlling shareholders. In contrast, a widely-held firm has many shareholders. It is difficult or impossible to wage a proxy battle for any closely-held firm. , the roots of which can be traced back to a 1920 publication by the U.S. Treasury U.S. Treasury
Created in 1798, the United States Department of the Treasury is the government (Cabinet) department responsible for issuing all Treasury bonds, notes and bills. Some of the government branches operating under the U.S. Treasury umbrella include the IRS, U.S. Department. In the excess earnings method, a single value estimate for tangible assets is multiplied by a single capitalization rate Capitalization Rate
According to the Appraisal Institute, it is a method used to convert an estimate of a single year's income expectancy into an indication of value in one direct step, by dividing the income estimate by an appropriate rate. and this net income allocation to tangible assets then is subtracted from total net income, and any remaining (excess) income is considered attributable to goodwill and is capitalized at an excess earnings capitalization rate earnings capitalization rate
See earnings-price ratio (E/P ratio). .(11) The model presented here treats several asset categories separately in order to identify explicitly and analyze the risk and value components of the going-concern.
The recommended model and its variants can be used for the following purposes: highest and best use analysis and market valuation of a going-concern, a test of reasonableness for going-concern capitalization rates extracted directly from market data, allocation of going-concern value into its tangible and intangible components (in certain cases), identification and measurement of goodwill value in a going-concern, and identification only of functional and/or external obsolescence ob·so·les·cent

2. Biology Gradually disappearing; imperfectly or only slightly developed. in special-purpose, business-oriented real estate. (Note, however, that this model cannot measure any identified obsolescence.)
Definition of Income
The term "net income," as used here, may apply to what real estate appraisers commonly refer to as "net operating income Operating Income
The profit realized from a business' own operations.
This would not include income from things such as investments in other firms. Also referred to as operating profit or recurring profit. " or, in some cases, to what business appraisers refer to as "net cash flow to invested capital." It is intended to mean net income before debt service. For purposes of brevity Brevity

cherry orchards where fruit was briefly sold; symbolic of transience. and clarity of presentation, the issue of going-concern income taxes is not addressed here.
The recommended allocation technique consists of the following steps: (Note that this technique is appropriate only for normalized or stabilized net income.)
1. Estimate the normalized expected annual net income for the going-concern by reviewing historical subject and market trends, current market conditions, and market expectations of the future regarding gross income and expenses.
2. On a preliminary basis, separately value each of the going-concern assets (except goodwill), using appropriate cost less depreciation, sales comparison, or income capitalization techniques. (In some cases, it may be untenable to separate business value from goodwill value.)
3. Estimate appropriate capitalization rates for each of the going-concern assets, using the available market data and considering the expected value Expected value

4. Estimate the net income to be allocated to each going-concern asset by multiplying each of the estimated asset values by the corresponding capitalization rate.

If goodwill value exists in a going-concern, it is not likely (although not impossible) that functional and/or external obsolescence is present in the going-concern and its components. If, on the other hand, there is insufficient income to provide a reasonable return on and return of the preliminary estimates of value for the identified cost-related assets (land, improvements, personal property, and business value), then functional and/or external obsolescence exists in the going-concern and in all of its assets except the land. The model presented is not capable of measuring this obsolescence.
CAPITALIZATION RATE ANALYSIS AND INCOME ALLOCATION
Analyses of capitalization rates for each of the assets should consider the lender's perspective on the going-concern and on each of the major asset categories. Depending on the nature of the business (and the underlying assets) and credit conditions in the subject market, it may be appropriate either to consider lending criteria for the assets individually or consider lending criteria for the business as a whole. Other vital considerations for estimating the appropriate overall capitalization rate for each asset include the estimated remaining economic life of each asset, and the suitability of each asset for alternative uses and the economic magnitude of those alternative uses.
Income Allocation to Land
Two input variables are required for this step: a value estimate of the land as though vacant and an estimated land capitalization rate. The land value estimate is performed, preferably using the sales comparison technique or another acceptable method if comparable land sales are not available. If possible, the land capitalization rate should also be based on market data such as comparable land lease rates (annual ground rent expressed as a percentage of land value). Land capitalization rates generally tend to vary inversely, other factors held constant, with the expected rate of growth in local land values. Multiplying the estimated land value by the appropriate land capitalization rate equals the income allocated to the land asset.
Income Allocation to Improvements
Improvements value can be estimated by any of the three approaches if reliable and comparable data are available. However, in many cases, only the cost less depreciation approach is suitable because sufficient data are not available for the sales comparison or income capitalization approaches. In many cases involving special-purpose assets, preliminary value estimates for real property by the cost less depreciation approach would consider only physical deterioration, since the existence of other depreciation types likely would not be revealed until the last step in the net income allocation process.
The appropriate capitalization rate for improvements (buildings and site improvements) will vary for business-oriented real estate based on the suitability and difficulty of conversion to alternative uses. For example, a typical restaurant building with a flexible floor plan can be adapted more easily for alternative uses or users than a restaurant building specifically designed for a unique concept, and this lower risk profile should be reflected in a lower building capitalization rate. As the dependence of the utility of improvements on a specific type of use increases, the direct correlation Noun 1. direct correlation - a correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with large values of the other and small with small; the correlation coefficient is between 0 and +1
positive correlation between the business risk and the associated risk of owning the improvements increases as well. One method of estimating this capitalization rate would be to calculate a sinking fund sinking fund, sum set apart periodically from the income of a government or a business and allowed to accumulate in order ultimately to pay off a debt. A preferred investment for a sinking fund is the purchase of the government's or firm's bonds that are to be paid recapture recapture n. in income tax, the requirement that the taxpayer pay the amount of tax savings from past years due to accelerated depreciation or deferred capital gains upon sale of property. (See: income tax)
RECAPTURE, war. rate (using the appropriate overall yield rate for improvements and the estimated remaining economic life of improvements) and adding this recapture rate to the overall yield rate for improvements.
Income Allocation to Personal Property
Personal property value can be estimated by any of the three approaches, if reliable and comparable data are available. However, in many cases, only the cost less depreciation approach is suitable because sufficient data are not available for the sales comparison or income capitalization approaches. In many cases involving personal property, preliminary value estimates by the cost less depreciation approach would consider only physical deterioration, since the existence of other depreciation types would not likely be revealed until the last step in the net income allocation process.
The appropriate capitalization rate for personal property (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) will vary based on the suitability for alternative users. There is a direct correlation between the degree of limitation of personal property for alternative uses and the risk of owning this personal property. One method of estimating this capitalization rate would be to calculate a sinking fund recapture rate (using the appropriate overall yield rate for the personal property and the estimated remaining economic life of the property) and adding this recapture rate to the overall yield rate for the personal property. Equipment lease rates may be a source of capitalization rates for personal property as well.
Income Allocation to Business Operation/License
The capital costs required to obtain any necessary licenses or permits to operate the business and to start the business enterprise (training management and employees, establishing working capital, creating record management systems, etc.) are deserving of a return on and return of the invested capital. In the case of a hotel going-concern, income attributable to the business operation often is represented by a management fee and/or franchise fee.(12) In other cases, the cost to create the business operation can be obtained from historical audited financial statements, and then can be adjusted to the present, using the historical rate of inflation. Depending on the nature of the specifically identified intangible assets of the business operation and on the data available in each case, one or more of the three traditional valuation approaches may be used to estimate the market value of these intangible assets.(13)
Once again, the overall yield rate (derived in consideration of the costs of debt and equity capital) and the average remaining economic life of the business assets should be primary considerations in estimating the appropriate overall capitalization rate for the business operation component. Also, the marketability and/or transferability of the intangible business assets for alternative users should be considered as risk factors. Market-extracted overall capitalization rates for these intangible assets probably will be difficult to obtain. Estimating these rates is quite challenging and may require the use of strong professional judgment preceded by careful consideration of the many factors involved in each case.
Capitalization Rate for Goodwill
Goodwill is identified by the existence of excess income. All of the other increments of business income described before can be directly associated with specific capital investments or costs (land, improvements, personal property, and business startup/license costs) required to produce this going-concern income. Thus, any business net income remaining after allocation of net income to these specifically identified capital investments is considered to reflect an excess increment To add a number to another number. Incrementing a counter means adding 1 to its current value. of value, or goodwill. Pratt et al. discuss some relevant considerations in estimating an appropriate overall capitalization rate for goodwill:

Also known as "net asset value" or "book value". provide a measure of safety that, if earnings fail to materialize as expected, then the assets usually can be liquidated DAMAGES, LIQUIDATED, contracts. When the parties to a contract stipulate for the payment of a certain sum, as a satisfaction fixed and agreed upon by them, for the not doing of certain things particularly mentioned in the agreement, the sum so fixed upon is called liquidated damages. (q.v. for something. Goodwill, on the other hand (as well as most other intangible assets), has no liquidation value Liquidation value
Net amount that could be realized by selling the assets of a firm after paying the debt. in the absence of earnings, since its economic value depends on its ability to generate economic income. Therefore, the risk attached to the intangible portion of the assets would seem to be greater and demand a higher rate of return.
Furthermore, a case can be made that the tangible assets have a more persistent and predictable life than goodwill or other intangible assets in many cases.
In general, investors are not willing to pay cash up front for more than one to five years' worth of earnings from commercial goodwill, sometimes even less. The length of expected future earnings from goodwill for which investors are willing to pay depends primarily on the perceived persistence of those earnings in the future, independent of further investment of time and effort to perpetuate per·pet·u·ate
tr.v. per·pet·u·at·ed, per·pet·u·at·ing, per·pet·u·ates
1. To cause to continue indefinitely; make perpetual.
One way to estimate a capitalization rate to apply to excess earnings is to think in terms of converting the number of years' worth of expected future excess earnings the investor would be willing to pay for in terms of cash up front into an implied capitalization rate. The implied capitalization rate in this scenario is simply the reciprocal of the number of years' expected excess earnings for which the investor would be willing to pay cash up front. For example, if the typical investor would pay cash equivalent to four years' excess earnings, the calculation would be: 1/4 = 0.25.(14)
Estimating the appropriate capitalization rate for goodwill (excess) income is the most difficult step in this analysis. One useful method is to interview knowledgeable market participants The term market participant is used in United States constitutional law to describe a U.S. State which is acting as a producer or supplier of a marketable good or service. When a state is acting in such a role, it may permissibly discriminate against non-residents. (buyers, prospective buyers, etc.) to determine the appropriate excess income multiplier multiplier

One macroeconomic multiplier, the autonomous expenditures multiplier, relates the impact of a change in total national investment on the nation's total . In addition, it is possible to extract a goodwill rate from comparable sales if adequate data is available.
INCOME ALLOCATION MODEL
Table 1 presents two scenarios using the model described. In scenario 1A, the stabilized going-concern net income is estimated at $1 million. Based on the method described before, a portion of this $1 million is allocated to each asset. The asset values and capitalization rates shown are hypothetical. The remaining excess income ($107,000) indicates the existence of goodwill, which is capitalized at a hypothetical rate in scenario lB. Scenario 1C contains the estimated going-concern value and the implied overall capitalization rate (OAR) for the going-concern.
The inputs for Scenario 2 differ from Scenario 1 only in that the estimated going-concern net income is $1.5 million. In Scenario 2, the residual excess income is $607,000, and the implied OAR is 300 basis points higher than in Scenario 1. To illustrate a potential error from not using the recommended allocation [TABULAR tab·u·lar

resembling a table. DATA FOR TABLE 1 OMITTED] model, assume that Scenario 1 is typical for a set of comparable sales but the income-generating characteristics of the going-concern under appraisal are represented by Scenario 2. An uninformed appraiser could easily reconcile to a market-extracted overall rate based on Scenario 1 comparables and apply it to a Scenario 2 subject, resulting in a value indication of $9,986,684 and an implied goodwill capitalization rate of 16.46%. This value is much higher than the value indicated by the income allocation method and would result in a major valuation error Also, the implied goodwill capitalization rate would be much lower than appropriate. Thus, the recommended method is very useful for going-concern valuations and for testing the reasonableness of going-concern capitalization rates extracted directly from market data.
The author's assertion that reasonable going-concern capitalization rates are impacted by the degree of intangible value (especially goodwill value) present in a going-concern is supported by the following:

2. care facilities that include substantial intangible going-concern value generally have higher overall capitalization rates than properties without substantial going-concern value. The higher overall capitalization rate, in part, recognizes the greater risk of going-concern value over that of tangible assets.
The overall capitalization rate for a particular property will be influenced not only by the physical characteristics of the property, but also by the amount of going-concern value included. In general, the higher the going-concern value, the greater the risk and, therefore, the higher the overall capitalization rate.(15)
Author James Brown
James Joseph Brown (May 3 1933 – December 25 2006), commonly referred to as "The Godfather of Soul" and " articulated an important concept, but his well-intentioned attempt at implementation was incomplete. In some cases, the residual excess income will be a negative number, indicating no goodwill value. A negative number means that the going-concern income is not sufficient to provide a reasonable return on and return of the preliminary estimates of value for the cost-based tangible and intangible assets. In these cases, the existence of functional and/or external obsolescence is identified and, if the assignment necessitates, the going-concern value must be reallocated in order to measure the identified obsolescence properly.

The foundation of this article is an evaluation of various definitions of going-concern value components. When analyzing these components, the vital first step for appraisers is acquiring a thorough understanding of well-articulated definitions. Current Appraisal Institute The Appraisal Institute (Institute), headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, is an international association of professional real estate appraisers. It was founded in January 1991 when the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers (AIREA) and the publications are lacking in some of these areas. The recommended model presented is intended to provide practitioners with a useful tool for highest and best use analyses and for valuations of going-concerns in which real estate comprises significant assets. This article is also intended to provide practitioners and academicians with a framework for further study and analysis of the important issues involved.
