3 Corporate take overs or Management Buy Outs (MBO’s) – When companies are interested in expanding, they will want to acquire strategic assets either being competitors or other assets that will increase their value chain proposition, in order to acquire these assets they will want to determine the value of the proposed targets, conversely the target company will want be valued to avoid it being undersold in the proposed transaction.

4 Valuations are required by IFRS in terms of fair value accounting.

5 The banks may require a valuation in order to provide finance or bridging finance.

6 Valuations can be done on either individual assets or the total company. It is crucial to ascertain why the valuation is being done.

When we conduct our valuation a key consideration for us is what stage of business you are in as this will be a key driver in the valuation methodology used and the questions we need to ask.

The stages include:
  • Start up
  • Growth
  • Maturity
  • Renewal
  • Decline


  • If the company is well established with a trading history we can use a PE multiple.
  • If the company is newly established we would have to look at whether there were recent acquisitions of similar companies
