A business valuation determines the estimated market value of a business entity. A valuation estimates the complex economic benefits that arise from combining a group of physical assets with a group of intangible assets of the business as a going concern. The valuation, which is part art and part science, estimates the price that hypothetical informed buyers and sellers would negotiate at arms length for an entire business or a partial equity interest.
