Manufacturing Business Valuation

Manufacturing business valuation is generally based on several different factors like the current market as well as the economic condition, the profit or loss as well as the debt, the current and the future growth potential, and a lot more.

If you own a manufacturing business and you are planning to take advantage of expansion loan or of selling the company, it is very important for you to know basics of business valuation.

Manufacturing Business Valuation Overview

If you have a manufacturing business, it is necessary for you to have an estimate of your business valuation. Many business owners conduct this estimation of their business valuation on monthly basis but estimating your business’ value quarterly will suffice. The importance of conducting an approximation on your business valuation is that you will immediately notice if there are negative trends. That way, you will be able to do quick adjustments on your already made business plan or on your manufacturing practices. You can understand business valuation simply by determining the factors that affect your business’ value. These factors include your equipment’s value, on hand inventory, cash assets, and the entire financial obligations like taxes as well as payroll.


Once you are done with determining the factors affecting your manufacturing business’ value, you can now proceed to calculation of the necessary elements of the business. First is the calculation of the value of the entire cash assets of your business. In your cash assets, you will include all of the money which is owed to your company which is due within the subsequent ninety (90) days, inventory, petty cash, bank accounts which will include the funds on the money market as well as the certificates of the deposit. Those other assets in which you can convert into cash during period of thirty (30) days must also be included in your cash assets.

Next is for you to compute the whole of the non-cash assets’ value. In this category, you will need to take account of the manufacturing equipment’s value, the money which is due to your company in the near future that is beyond the period of ninety (90) days, bonds as well as the other securities which are not subject to quick exchange for cash, furniture and office equipment, collectible art, the real estate which is owned by your business, and all of the other assets which are also not subject for a quick cash exchange within the period of thirty (30) days. After calculating all of the cash and the non-cash assets, add the sum total of each of the assets in order to know the value of the entire assets that you possess.

Debts and Liabilities

You must also compute the business debt’s value as well as the other value of the business’ liabilities. Then, subtract the liabilities of your business from the total value of the assets in order for you to find the liabilities’ value. The result may be negative or positive. It may also change by cycles all throughout the entire year, well that is if the business that you have is that of a seasonal nature.
