How do I value this preferred stock in my EV calculation

Hi,

How should I value the following preferred stock in my EV calculation?

Series J 8.38% cumulative redeemable preferred stock, 1,000,000 shares authorized, 796,948 issued and outstanding with a liquidation value of $39,847. 

The balance sheet shows $42,748 against the above entry.  I am not sure if I should use the liquidation value, the balance sheet number or some other value in my Enterprise Value calculation for this company.  

Thanks

The best just got better. Schweser's upgraded content and redesigned study platform are exactly what you need to pass the Level I exam. Save 10% when you preorder a Premium Package for a limited time.

You need market value, so liquidation value makes more sense.
