Business valuations

There will come a time when you need to understand the value of your business or the assets you manage. A valuation may be needed:

  • For corporate governance or regulatory compliance
  • To support critical strategic decision making such as planning an acquisition or disposal
  • To resolve disputes between shareholders or business partners
  • As a fundamental part of operational management in monitoring portfolio performance or maximising shareholder value.

Valuation is a complex and controversial subject – all businesses are unique and face different competitive pressures. The value of any company or asset is intrinsically linked to the future income that it will generate. These future income streams are normally uncertain.

Valuation requires an in depth understanding of the asset being valued, the market in which it operates, the company that owns it and its competitive strengths and weaknesses. It requires analysis of financial and non-financial information and assess other factors such as the legal and regulatory environment.

Valuation requires the right combination of commercial insight, technical expertise, experience and professional judgement. Our valuation team works closely with clients to understand their needs and to develop bespoke solutions to complex valuation issues. We focus on understanding business dynamics and the key value drivers of the sector in which it operates.
