New Terminal Value (NTV)
NTV presents an overview of the issues with conventional Business Valuation methodologies such as (i) constant-capital-structure and (ii) no-debt-principal repayment assumptions. It proposes the Capitalization 2.0 framework which overcomes this by valuing a constant growth business with debt principal repayment and a changing capital structure. NTV generates pro-forma statements of a buyer who pays a value derived using GGM and AGM.
