Net Asset Value

The Bigger Picture In Selling Your Business

What Does Net Asset Value Mean?

Net Asset Value (NAV) also known as Book Value is the value of all of a company’s assets less its liabilities. It is an account of the value of the company’s assets minus the value of its liabilities.

Put differently, net asset value is the underlying value of a company, rather than a perceived value dictated by market forces and conditions, demand and supply (how much a potential buyer is willing and able to pay for it), or supply and demand (how much the seller is willing and able to sell it for). Net asset value is also called book value.
