The DLA valuation presented in this chapter seemed to be an ideal example with which to introduce the base-case valuation profile because its NAV and EPV came to the exact same amount. Such a “clean” result does not occur often, but it does not have to. The two values (meaning NAV and EPV) will relatively reconcile for any firm that does not operate with a sustainable competitive advantage or is in distress (financial, operational, or strategic), absent valuation errors. The likelihood of such errors declines significantly for valuations that occur within one’s circle of competence; however, the likelihood can never be reduced to zero, which is why the margin of safety is so important.

Value is now discerned, and investment opportunities assessed, along a unique continuum such as the one shown in Figure 1-2. As can be seen from Figure 1-2, the value continuum begins with net asset value, the most tangible level of value, then proceeds to earnings power value and franchise value (or the value of a sustainable competitive advantage) before ending with growth value, the last and least tangible level of value.
