Definition 4.

This is the net worth of a company, the amount by which assets exceed liabilities. It''s also known as ""shareholder''s equity."" Most companies are worth far more than their book value, since ""worth"" means what someone is willing to pay, and hardly any good companies can be acquired for this baseline price. Book value is of particular interest to value investors.
