Value a Private Limited Company

A company shareholders agreement may include a mechanism agreed on for calculating the valuation of shares in particular circumstances. However, all too often this is not the case. A valuation may be required for numerous reasons, including when shares are to be bought back by the company or offered to other shareholders.

There are a number of ways to value a private company. In an open market transaction, the price will be what it is worth to the buyer to acquire the shares. Often the share value of a private listed company is required at the outset of negotiations or other share scheme or transfer.

It is difficult for a company's accountant to be truly independent, as their relationship with one or more shareholders is more important than with the others. It may therefore be better to turn to a valuer unknown to any of the parties. An independent expert valuer, who can provide impartial advice, can help limit the potential for friction and disagreement between the shareholders (if for example there is a management buyout type of scenario when shares are being acquired by other existing shareholders).
