Business Valuation Models
In this appendix, models are developed that calculate the present value of various cash flow streams frequently encountered when valuing business plans. The theoretical framework for these models was developed in Appendix A. Where possible the models refer to the equation(s) in Appendix A that form the basis for the various business models that follow.
STREAM OF DISTINCT CASH FLOWS1
Equation [B-1] can be used to calculate the present value of any stream of cash flows that are based on estimates or growth assumptions for each period. In this sense [B-1] is completely general and in fact is the starting point for developing special cases such as the perpetual and finite models. Equation [B-2] is simply the expanded form of Equation [B-1].
