Calculation of Book Value


Recommended Posts



I wanted to get myself clear on this once and for all.


What is the best, most widely adopted way of calculating Book Value of a company?


Option 1- All Assets at carrying value - liabilities = Book Value


Option 2- All Assets at carrying value - liabilities - intangibles = Book Value


Option 3- Some other variation.  (Please describe)



I have seen different news sources use different versions and I wasn't sure.  I get the fact that regardless, one must be consistent so that we are comparable over time and between companies..  But I wanted to get clarity from you guys.
