In the context of current competitive environment the companies in agriculture are forced to find a path towards the improvement of their business competitiveness. One of illuminating examples may be the horizontal cooperation in the form of cooperative entity. Naturally, as the economic performance of the group rises, the economic performance of members should rise, too. However, the crucial point is whether these members create a value for the owners, as this is the primary company objective. In this paper, we provide unique comparison of application of a residual income valuation method to empirically verify the assumptions which lead to grouping agricultural enterprises in cooperative entity. There are two objects of research: firstly, the alliance of winemakers, their individual members cooperating in marketing and sales management with the aim of boosting their economic performance, and secondly, their business rivals, who decided not to enter the alliance and cooperate. Alliance V8 is a newly-established NGO grouping top Moravian winemakers, the only of its kind in the Czech Republic. Contrasting the results of the case study research of both objects of research reveals whether joining the alliance altered the value of their members and also examines the applicability of the valuation method.
