Business valuations

Whether you are buying, selling or reorganising, what is the key to valuing a business?

What is your business worth?

It’s never a simple as 5 x your maintainable profits.

Valuing any business is never an exact science, the key is an understanding and knowledge of the business and market sector as well as being able to analyse the figures

Possible valuation methods include

  • Multiple of earnings
  • Net assets
  • Dividend yield
  • Discounted cash flow

Any valuation must be robust to scrutiny and fully assess the impact of properties, intangible assets, undervalued assets and off balance sheet liabilities and not forgetting the impact of suplus cash and assets
