Putting a value on private equity is not as easy to do as securities listed on listed exchanges. Typically, a private company will have completed a valuation to determine how much the company is worth, thus giving a value for each share. There are so many variables on how to value a private company that it is difficult to determine an accurate share price.

Ask the management team or board if there is one what the most recent valuation was, this will give you an idea of what your shares are worth, but keep in mind this can change quickly.

Thank you,
