Appraisal Economics has determined the fair market value of minority, non-controlling interests in various companies under common ownership engaged in construction management, construction material manufacture, and construction equipment rental in the Mid-Atlantic region. We determined the business enterprise value and the corresponding equity value of each company using the capitalization of earnings method of the income approach and the guideline transaction method of the market approach. Key issues included normalized levels of contract revenue, given the wide year-to-year fluctuations, as well as appropriate owners’ compensation for each entity, given that each of the owners rendered services in a variety of capacities to all of the companies. As part of our analysis, we made adjustments to the pro rata values of the subject interests to account for their lack of control and lack of marketability.
