Valuing a Business, 2d ed.

Valuing a Buiness

This is the second edition of Dr. Pratt's Valuing a Business, a leading treatise on the analysis and appraisal of closely held companies. Dr. Prat is President of Willamette Management Associates, a national business valuation firm, headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Pratt and his staff of business valuation analyzers have become widely recognized and respected as leading contributors to the conceptual development of the business appraisal profession. This hefty volume is an indispensable reference for anyone involved with the valuation of a business or business interest. It is the most comprehensive treatise available on the valuation of a business enterprise. Not only will appraisers of businessses find the volume indispensable, but owners of businesses, their attorneys, and their accountants will also find the principles and the techniques of business valuation are presented in depth. Importantly, the mechanics of conducting a valuation are described in detail, from the nature and sources of data to be gathered through the writing of the final appraisal report. In addition, the book emphasizes the importance of understanding relevant valuation law and cites scores of judicial decisions to highlight applicable case law. New in this edition is a three chapter section on litigation, containing chapters and citations on Litigation Support, Expert Testimony and Arbitration. The book is comprehensively indexed.
