Valuing minority shareholdings in private companies is one of the most complex areas of valuations. By definition, a minority shareholding is a parcel of shares in a company that cannot exert control over that company.
When valuing minority shareholdings in private companies, not only does a valuer have to have consideration for the activities of the company (including its financial performance and non-financial risk factors such as employee matters, intellectual property and contracts), the valuer must also give specific consideration to the nature of the shareholding that is being valued, looking at factors such as the level of control held by the shareholder over the operations of the company and the saleability of the shareholding.
