About This Program

In this presentation with Robert Reilly and Weston Kirk they describe —and illustrate —the practical procedures related to the generally accepted asset-based approach to business valuation. First, explore the client situations in which the analyst should consider applying the asset-based approach. Second, review the generally accepted business valuation methods within the asset-based approach, including the asset accumulation method (AA method) and the adjusted net asset value method (ANAV method). Third, review the procedures for valuing working capital accounts, real estate and tangible personal property, identifiable intangible assets, and goodwill—and long-term liabilities and contingent liabilities—based on both (1) a value in use premise of value and (2) a value in exchange premise of value. Fourth, this presentation includes illustrative examples of the application of both the AA method and the ANAV method.


  • The asset-based valuation approach within the context of the three generally accepted business valuation approaches
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the application of the asset-based approach
  • Generally accepted asset-based approach valuation methods
  • Differences between the asset-based (business) valuation approach and the cost (property) valuation approach
  • Procedures to value working capital accounts
  • Procedures to value real estate
  • Procedures to value tangible personal property
  • Procedures to value identifiable intangible assets
  • Procedures to value goodwill
  • Procedures to value long-term debt and contingent liabilities
  • Consideration of make-ready expenses, disposition expenses, economic obsolescence, and income tax liabilities
  • Illustrative example of an asset accumulation method analysis
  • Illustrative example of an adjusted net asset value method analysis
