Net Current Asset Value

Net Current Assets Value (NCAV) = (Current assets (cash, inventories and accounts receivable) – All Liabilities) / Market value.

All Liabilities = (Total Assets - Common Shareholders Equity).

As you can see it is not a value but a ratio, and the higher its value (NCAV is greater than market value) the more undervalued the company is.
