A business valuation is more than an assessment of the financial statements of the business and we, therefore explore factors such as the history of the business, the business model, business sector prospects, an analysis of key revenue and profit streams, current and forward period budgets, the organisation and its people structure, competitor and sensitivity analysis, limitations, and material events and transactions to determine the value of the underlying assets. Apart from business valuations, we also undertake valuation of intangible assets, purchase price allocation and ESOP. We select the most appropriate internationally acceptable valuation technique to arrive at a fair business value prior to accepting or making an offer.
