Acquisitions, mergers and management buy-ins or buy-outs are highly complex transactions that require reliable valuations for sound decision-making. A proper valuation does not only provide insight into what a business is worth, but also into the value potential buyers or sellers attach to it. Valuations are inherently subjective, which means a company’s value may be different from the seller’s viewpoint and the buyer’s viewpoint. A valuation that gives a clear picture of the value drivers is essential in order to negotiate effectively. In addition, a valuation can point you in the direction of finding the right buyer.
A reliable valuation is also important for accountability reasons and can be used to substantiate and clarify management decisions for other parties in the process, such as commissioners and shareholders.
Money, time and risk
Valuations are based on three variables:
- Money: the projected cash flows.
- Time: when these cash flows are expected to occur.
- Uncertainty/risk: charting the risks and uncertainties associated with these cash flows.
