Investing In Television Market Report.
Stick value is defined as fair market value assuming the station is a start-up independent 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 and cable/DBS carriage in the market. This approach eliminates factors unique to the operation of the station, including its affiliation and historical financial performance. A stick valuation assumes that a station commences operations on the effective date of the valuation.
The Television Stick Value Calculator provides an estimated stick value range based on the best available recent sales data of independent television stations (a market approach) as of the specified valuation date.
While performing a television stick valuation, BIA/Kelsey will not interview the owner and/or operator of the subject television 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 Television 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 television station. It does not consider all of the many market and competitive factors that can influence the actual price paid for a television station.
