Appraisal Economics Inc. has determined the fair market value of a minority, non-controlling membership interest in a craft brewing company based in the northeastern United States. The brewery produces over 20 varieties of beer and ships tens of thousands of barrels annually. We determined the business enterprise value of the Company using the discounted cash flow method of the income approach and the guideline transaction method of the market approach. In the discounted cash flow method, we determined the aggregate present value of the Company’s expected future cash flows. In the guideline transaction method, we computed multiples to apply to the Company’s fundamentals based on the multiples from transactions of other similar companies. As part of our analysis, we made adjustments to the pro rata value of the subject interest to account for its lack of control and lack of marketability.
