The value of your business and its assets are important in every strategic decision and financial transaction that you undertake.
Business or share valuations may be required for a number of reasons, including preparing for a commercial transaction, for tax and stamp duty purposes, as part of a succession strategy, to facilitate dispute resolution or simply to gauge the current health of the business.
Whatever the reason for undertaking a valuation, the valuation must consider all the key value drivers of the business and the reasons for its conclusions must be clear and transparent. It should assist the board, management and shareholders to make strategic and informed decisions.
A comprehensive valuation involves more than just “number crunching”. Strong industry knowledge, the ability to analyse both financial and non-financial information and an understanding of current market trends are all necessary.
