The debate on several issues in business valuation is still wide open and no definite position
has been taken by scholars (e.g. if considering or not specific risk in cost of capital estimation,
if and under which circumstances should discounts and premia be applied, etc.). Such
critical issues are particularly important for special kinds of business valuation, like the ones
cited above, where the peculiarity of the individual case widens the gap between reality and
the theoretical assumptions underlying the valuation of businesses in ordinary situations.
Possible approaches are proposed, with their strengths and weaknesses, to help practicing
professionals who, like the author, are called upon every day to take a position to
address real needs (e.g. issues of fairness opinions, appraisals, etc.), irrespective of
progress made by research in that particular area.
The main aim of the book is to offer practical approaches to help appraisers to define the
best methodologies when they are faced with typical critical valuation issues related to
real, elaborate cases.
This book is therefore essential reading for all those involved in the valuation of
businesses in complex situations but also for students of advanced corporate finance.
