Business Valuation and General Damages

The value of any business is simply the combined net present value (NPV) of all expected future proceeds accruing to the owners of the business. Damages suffered by a business then amount to the difference between the pre-damage value of the business and the post-damage value of the business, or equivalently, the NPV of all expected differences in future proceeds accruing to the owners of the business because of the harm suffered.

SCG, Inc. is frequently engaged to assist counsel with valuation and damage issues, prepare expert reports, and provide expert testimony.
