The simplest way to value a business might be to look at its balance sheet. This is a list of the business’s assets and liabilities, showing the company’s net worth. Depending on the business, the balance sheet might show tangible and intangible assets and a variety of long-term liabilities, some of which you might be able to reduce through negotiations and invoking early-termination agreements. If it’s a complex balance sheet, you can simply take the assets you think you can sell quickly and subtract the liabilities to determine the company’s net worth for a fast sale.
There are a number of variants of the ratio like total asset turnover ratio, fixed asset turnover ratio and working capital turnover ratio. In all cases the numerator is the same i.e. net sales (both cash and credit) but denominator is average total assets, average fixed assets and average working capital respectively.
