Going-Concern Value

The value of a company as long as it remains in business. One calculates the going-concern value by adding the value of its goodwill and income to its net asset value. This is an important calculation when determining the appropriate purchase price in a merger or acquisition. Mortgage lenders also use it to determine the value of an income-producing property.

The value of a business in operation,taking into account the goodwill and the value of the income, in addition to hard assets, such as real estate and equipment. When appraising a project to develop income-producing property,the appraiser will usually provide two numbers—one for the project on the day of completion,with no tenants,and one when it reaches stabilized occupancy and is a going concern.Lenders who take mortgages on income-producing property with intensive management aspects—such as hospitality properties—usually obtain a going-concern rider for the title insurance so that coverage will be increased above the value of the real property.
