Calculating the value of a business, shares or assets can be a critical and contentious issue for institutions, businesses and individuals in a variety of circumstances.
Value is a core consideration for any business. Knowing the value of an asset, transaction, company, partnership, competitor or target can create new business opportunities and act as a key driver of corporate transactions.
Whether for financial reporting purposes, acquisitions or sales, tax planning or dispute resolution, valuations are required at many stages of the business lifecycle. Knowing the value of your business or your personal business interests and other assets can give you the confidence you need to plan for the future.
Clients commission us to provide an independent view on the value of a business or its underlying sources of capital. Some of the most common reasons clients need a valuation include:
In each situation, our valuation experts develop a thorough understanding of the business in order to build a detailed picture of its underlying drivers of value at both a macro and micro level. We use this knowledge to guide
our valuation modelling in the context of the available market evidence.
We use commonly accepted valuation methods – typically market multiples and DCF – with a critical part of the process being corroboration of results derived from one method against those derived from another. The end goal is to
produce a highly robust valuation that stands up to external scrutiny.
We work with all sizes of business from large multinational corporations through to owner-managed businesses. For transaction-related valuation advice, we work closely with our corporate finance team in order to provide you with a full package of advice.
