Valuations & Economics

Valuing all or part of a business requires understanding and analysis of a variety of complex factors. These include both detailed technical knowledge of value drivers and in-depth industry knowledge.

  • Valuing all or part of a business requires input from a variety of specialist advisers who need to understand the value drivers relevant to a particular industry sector alongside the broader strategic aims of the business.
  • In the event of a merger, acquisition or alliance it is vital to understand the value likely to be created through the transaction.
  • The decision to restructure all or part of a business needs to be informed by a comprehensive understanding of the value of every aspect of the business.
  • In the event of a dispute, an independent valuation is likely to help resolve issues swiftly.
  • Operating internationally means that an understanding of the issues driving valuations in different countries is essential. Applying a common methodology across all countries generates a more reliable view of an international business’s value.
  • You may want to understand the value of intellectual property, intangible assets acquired during a business transaction, value of internally generated assets.
