This is an excellent book on the topic.

I recommend that you contact a business appraiser, however. The appraisal of a closely held business is complicated. To ensure that you pay a fair price, you may need the services of an expert. I appraise closely held businesses for a living. If you have more detail questions ask. If you need an expert please feel free to contact me.
Great I will take a look at the book... We are at an impasse because she wants to set the sale of her shares on a value based on prior 2-3 years EBITDA and I want to value based on future net cash flows. As a general rule, I was curious about generally accepted practices.
I propose you to evaluate the business based on cash-flow starting from EBITDA.
