We undertake detailed valuations of companies and businesses as a standalone exercise for a multitude of reasons that benefit our clients:
- Tax planning
- Exit planning
- Shareholder disputes
- Share valuations under court process.
Our approach to valuations is based on our real-life experiences of not only how the financial performance affects valuation, but also factoring in all the commercial aspects associated with a business such as:
- Products and markets
- Customer base
- Management team
- Intellectual property rights
- Asset base and infrastructure
- Deal activity in sector.
Our experience is that, in mediation meetings and court cases, our advice is taken as more relevant than other evidence, as our opinions come from our real-life experience of how businesses are valued in trade sales, Buy-In and Buy-Out transactions and Private Equity deals, as opposed to the “text book”, as is often the norm.
