Stick value is defined as fair market value assuming the station is a start-up operation on the valuation date. A stick value estimate is derived by estimating a station's ability to serve its market based on its signal coverage of the market. This approach eliminates factors unique to the operation of the station, including its format and historical financial performance. A stick valuation assumes that a station commences operations on the effective date of the valuation.
The Radio Stick Value Calculator provides an estimated stick value range based on the best available recent sales data of radio stations (a market approach) as of the specified valuation date.
While performing a radio stick valuation, BIA/Kelsey will not interview the owner and/or operator of the subject radio station in connection with this assignment, review the station's financial statements, or perform a discounted cash flow analysis (DCF, an income approach.)
The results of the Radio Stick Value Calculator do not represent a full and complete fair market valuation and should not be relied upon for financing, financial reporting or tax purposes. The result is a starting point in estimating the stick value of the subject radio station. It does not consider all of the many market and competitive factors that can influence the actual price paid for a radio station.
