How to value a company
When a business is valued, it is usually done by one of three methods: discounted cash flow (DCF), industry, EBITDA, multiples, or book value. These three methods can be used together or individually to determine a company’s value.
When valuing a company, it’s important to keep in mind that the market value of any given company is determined by multiple factors: its revenue and profit margins; its current assets (such as cash) and liabilities (like debt); its forecasts for future growth; and so on. Because of this, there are multiple ways to come up with an approximate value for each business depending on which method best suits your needs at the time. Some methods are more accurate than others and some are better suited for different situations. However, all valuation methods share one thing in common: they require an understanding of the company as a whole and its long-term prospects.

CFIE’s industry valuation calculator
CFIE has a team of industry M&A experts who have been working in the same field for years and have come up with a simple valuation calculator. Our goal was to create an online calculator with all the basic features and functionality required to come up with an estimated range.
Our industry valuation calculator is a web-based application that provides all the necessary information on the current and future value of companies in specific industries. Businesses owners can use this, as well as investors, analysts, and others who need to make decisions about what companies in different industries are worth.
The calculator was created by CFIE because we wanted to help our visitors understand how valuable their companies or investments are. We found that there were many calculators available online but most of them are not industry specific. The fact is that the valuation varies a lot depending on which industry the company is active in. Therefore the calculator allows users to enter information about their business and then calculate its current value range based on several industry-specific benchmarks.
How to use CFIE’s valuation calculator
Using our industry valuation calculator is simple: The user inputs relevant information such as industry sector, revenue dependence, and operating metrics (such as revenue), then enters assumptions about future growth rates. The calculator then generates a range for the valuation estimate.
