Abandonment value refers to the value of a project or investment were it to be liquidated presently.

How Does Abandonment Value Work?

Also called liquidation value, the abandonment value of a project or investment is the immediate value in cash that would be generated from liquidating a project or selling an investment.

Why Does Abandonment Value Matter?

A given project's abandonment value can be an important consideration for a company.
