It is not only the result of the highly developed market economy but also the objective need for all sorts of enterprises to make developments and profits. Purchasing shell corporations is a vital operational method. By this way enterprises can enter the capital market directly and expand themselves rapidly. After making the M&A decisions by strategic needs enterprises should evaluate the target corporations.There are mainly three evaluation methods: Discounted Cash Flow Method, Relative Comparables Method and Option Pricing Method. Real option is a method using option pricing model to appraise assets with option characteristics and it perfects the evaluation theory. When the traditional DCF method is not or hardly suited it can get the ideal results by specific ways. It has a broad prospect in all problems with option characteristics.
