Whether you’re looking to raise a round of capital or sell your company, it’s important to understand how to value your company. The best way to value a company is to research comparable transactions in the market. We’ll take a look at Fortune Brands’ acquisition of Skinnygirl for an easy-to-follow example.Revenue EstimatesWe first develop revenue estimates to determine whether or not this transaction is in fact comparable to the company we are v...

I get a lot of questions about valuation caps

I explained valuation caps in one of the Spreecast videos (http://www.spreecast.com/events/lean-finance-for-startups92013) in lieu of creating a new YouTube video. 

Here's what you need to do to modify the current cap table for a valuation cap:

1) Change Cap Amount from "none" to $2,500,000* in cell G31
2) Change Discount from "25%" to the formula: (K29-G31)/K29 which is (Series A Total - Cap Amount)/Series A Total

You'll get a 50% discount, which is double the previous rate of 25%. Notice that the shares double. Modify the Cap Amount to see the effects of various caps. 

Let me know if you have any questions. 

* this cell is formatted for % so just change to $

Keep your questions coming....

Happy Learning
