CONCEPTS OF VALUE EXPERIENCE

Market Value (Fair Market Value)

A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency to be

realized for property in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with equity to

both, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell, and both parties fully aware of all relevant

facts as of the effective date of this appraisal report.

Market Value - In Place

A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency to be

realized for property in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with equity to

both, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell, and both parties fully aware of all relevant

facts, as installed for intended utilization, as of the effective date of this appraisal report.

Forced Liquidation Value (Auction)

A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency which

could typically be realized at a properly advertised and conducted public auction sale, held under

forced sale conditions and under present day economic trends, as of the effective date of the

appraisal report. Conclusions taken into consideration are physical location, difficulty of

removal, physical condition, adaptability, specialization, marketability, overall appearance and

psychological appeal. Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers

to insure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis ‘as is’

with purchasers responsible for removal of assets at their own risk and expense. Any deletions

or additions to the total assets appraised could change the psychological and or monetary appeal

necessary to gain the price indicated.

Orderly Liquidation Value

A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency which

the subject equipment could typically realize at a privately negotiated sale, properly advertised

and professionally managed, by a seller obligated to sell over an extended period of time, usually

within six to twelve months, as of the effective date of the appraisal. Further, the ability of the

asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to insure competitive offers is considered. All

assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis ‘as is’ with purchasers responsible for removal of assets

at their own risk and expense. Any deletions or additions to the total assets appraised could change

the psychological and/or monetary appeal necessary to gain the price indicated.

New Replacement Cost Value

A professional opinion of the cost expressed in terms of currency, F.O.B. the manufacturer’s

plant, to purchase a new item of like quality and specifications. If such an item is unavailable,

the appraiser has used his or her best judgment in estimating a value as of the effective date of

the appraisal.

Desktop Opinion

A professional opinion of the appropriately defined value, expressed in terms of currency to be

realized by the sale of assets, in which the opinion is generated from lists and/or other

informational materials supplied to the appraiser and evaluated without the benefit of an actual

on site inspection. This opinion is not recommended for use in credit decisions. A desktop

opinion should be used to determine the need for an appraisal or the scope of an appraisal.
