Helen Troy started a Teabucks teashop in Troy, Michigan a few years ago. She formed a corporation, and owned all the shares of this corporation. She played various roles as the CEO and a cashier. Fortunately for Helen her teashop became very popular and her firm grew at a very rapid pace. She expanded her business to all the big cities. She added more staff and even hired a MBA graduate from the University of Michigan. The firm has negligible debt, and all the growth has been financed with equity. The stock was owned by only a few individuals and hence a privately held corporation. Therefore no market price has been established for the stock. Now she wants to expand into tea packaging and tea bottling operations, which require large investment outlays. So Helen decided to take her company public. Valuation of a privately held firm requires:
