Key Elements

    • Financial Analysis - more  

The financial statement analysis generally involves common size analysis, ratio analysis (liquidity, turnover, profitability, etc.), trend analysis and industry comparative analysis. This permits the valuation analyst to compare the subject company to other businesses in the same or similar industry, and to discover trends affecting the company and/or the industry over time. By comparing a company's financial statements in different time periods, the valuation expert can view growth or decline in revenues or expenses, changes in capital structure, or other financial trends. How the subject company compares to the industry will help with the risk assessment and ultimately help determine the discount rate and the selection of market multiples.

    • Economic Conditions - more A business valuation must involve a description of national, regional and local economic conditions existing as of the valuation date, as well as the conditions of the industry in which the subject business operates.
    • Normalization of Financial Statements - more The most common normalization of financial statements fall into the following four categories:
    • Income, Asset and Market Approaches - moreThree different approaches are commonly used in business valuation: the income approach, the asset-based approach, and the market approach.  Within each of these approaches, there are various techniques for determining the value of a business using the definition of value appropriate for the appraisal assignment. Generally, the income approaches determine value by calculating the net present value of the benefit stream generated by the business (discounted cash flow); the asset-based approaches determine value by adding the sum of the parts of the business (net asset value); and the market approaches determine value by comparing the subject company to other companies in the same industry, of the same size, and/or within the same region.

Discussion Draft - A Discussion Draft is sent to management to review that an accurate financial picture is presented and projections are realistic.

Accepted by Management - A valuation analyst presents a draft copy of final report to management for review and sign-off.

Final Report - After the Draft is reviewed and accepted by management, the Final Report is created, packaged and issued to you. We seek a true and accurate representation that will withstand critical challenges.
