We help owners and management teams to identify, understand and leverage the economic value of their businesses and assets. We analyze key factors that impact value, including profitability, competitive and geographic factors, and unique aspects of products or services. In addition, our professionals review past performance, assess future potential and examine external factors to place your value in context.
We will perform an information gathering exercise, including management interviews, to gain an understanding of the current financial and strategic position of the company and/or assets, including analysis of historical operating and financial results.
A typical process is to perform research into the relevant market and competitors and build the valuation model. We then undertake research to develop appropriate discounts or premiums to the indicated value.
We will share the draft valuation conclusions with the client and seek ongoing discussion and feedback.
