Two partners, Smith and Wesson, owned and operated a successful fast food business together for 15 years. During the past year, the two partners have had an increasing number of serious arguments about how to operate the business and about planned future expansion of the business. Both partners have agreed that they no longer can operate the business together. Either partner is willing to sell his share of the business to someone else and to get out of the fast food business altogether. An independent appraiser has valued the total value of the business at $1.5 million. Partner Smith owns 49 percent of the business, and Partner Wesson owns 51 percent of the business. What is the value of each partner’s share of the business and what was the basis of your evaluation of the partners’ share of the business?
