What is the value of my business?

Similar to bond or real estate valuations, the value of a business can be expressed as the present value of expected future earnings. Use this calculator to determine the value of your business today based on discounted future cash flows with consideration to "excess compensation" paid to owners, level of risk, and possible adjustments for small size or lack of marketability.
Annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ($) 
"Excess compensation" paid to owners (if any) ($) 
Anticipated rate of earnings/compensation growth (0 if level) (%) 
Number of years earnings are expected to continue
(maximum 10 which assumes perpetuity)
Level of business/industry/financial risk
(Typically restaurants and retail are lower risk than manufacturing and high tech)
Discount for lack of marketability (%)
