Darly valued him at $40mil a few months ago. I can't see anyone outbidding them if they want him and if the owner is more interested in making the money for him rather than making a stallion out of him well there you go.
Washington Post cited DRF that Big Brown was valued at $50 million.

His stud fee was $65k. I always value a horse at stud fee x number of breedings per year x 5 years. Using this formula Big Brown would have to cover 154 mares for 5 years at $65k to be worth $50 million.
If you use a stud fee of €100k for Sea the Stars with 154 covers x 5 years, you'd get €77 million value, converted into US $ that would be $114.8 million. Now most places not named Coolmore don't breed that many, but I used that number based on the Big Brown $50 million valuation.
I'm guessing that 40 million number was in pounds, which would be US $63.8 million.
A lot of assumptions above, but it would give you a rough idea and allow you to play with book size and stud fee to get a valuation. This article values him at 60 million pounds or US $95.8 million.

I meant pounds, here's an article from August on his value.

How many Big Brown seasons were given away to lure in names? Do those still count? I want to be able to use that theory next time I go shopping and have to explain why I could spent so much.
