Valuation of unlisted shares

Anyone come across unlisted shares in the context of MTB entitlement?

Client says she invested ~£18,000 in Australian company many years back and which are apparently worth quite a lot more now.

However, she also says that they are private shares and must be offered for sale to other shareholders but until a “Portal” is formed with a list of shareholders this can’t be done.

Apparently, she has approached a financial advisor and a stockbroker here in the UK and both have said that they can’t help her. 

I have no idea about how these might be valued, anyone got any ideas? Of course, obvious thing to do would be stick in a claim and see what DWP say, but thought I’d test the waters here as well.

Thanks all.
