Appraisal Economics Inc. valued a major league baseball franchise for litigation purposes, including an assessment of the impact of its new stadium. The guideline transaction method was used to determine the franchise value, while an income approach was employed to estimate the impact of the new stadium. Lack of control and lack of marketability were also factors bearing on the value of the equity interests in the franchise, which comprised voting and non-voting shares. Contingent liabilities were a significant factor impacting the total franchise equity value.
