In preparing the valuation report, we have relied upon information that has been provided by the client; information otherwise should be verified. In the event of significant variation from the information initially given to us, our valuation may require adjustment. We cannot express an opinion about, or advise upon, the condition of un-inspected / un-verified areas. The Valuation Report should not be taken as making any implied representation or statement about such areas.

Our valuation is provided only for the purpose agreed with the instructing client and will be for sole use of the client. As such, it is confidential to the client and his professional advisors. We accept responsibility to the client alone that the report has been prepared with the skill, care and diligence.Neither the whole nor any part of the Valuation Report may be included in any published document, circular or statement nor published in any way without our written approval of the form and context in which it may appear. We undertake all services only on the basis of these terms which shall apply to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions which the client may seek to impose.

The valuation of a company is derived based on the information provided by the company and gathered by means of inquiry. The computation and analysis intends to provide reasonable grounds for valuing the business as a going concern. The reader is expected to exercise professional judgement when using the report to initiate any business transaction or relationship with the company.

Valuation will determine the expected price that the buy side may potentially pay for the business (sell side). However, the real price will be determined only when the business transaction is closed and based on the value that the buyer has paid for the business.

Valuation figure determined is to provide you with a broad estimate based on many factors. It does not confirm the price your business will be sold at; however, it gives best estimated value of your business.

No. Your business valuation calculation is for your own reference only. The decision is up to you whether you want to share your valuation report to any external party.

Valuation number is generally valid only for the valuation date indicated on the report and for the purpose stated. Ideally, the businesses are recommended to conduct valuation every 6 months.

It is important to consider future prospect of your business from both Sellers as well as Buyer’s perspective. Seller is interested to show the business potential in terms of growth prospects and as a result wants a higher business valuation. Whereas, the Buyer wants to evaluate the risks and opportunities going forward.

Intangible assets like goodwill, brand, trademarks and copyrights, intellectual property, royalty, software rights, etc. plays an important role in valuing a business. These are generally valued at acquisition costs.

If the business has significant amount of off-balance sheet liabilities, such as derivatives transactions, long-term lease agreements, the valuation should reflect the off-balance sheet liabilities.

Yes, the valuation will consider the potential to expand capacity or any such business or operational flexibilities that is offered in a particular business.

A running business shall be valued as a going concern. The valuation in this case will be determined based on its current cash flow, growth of cash flow, value of assets and liabilities and its capital investment. On the other hand, a dormant business generally does not have cash flow or the cash flow does not originate from business operations; example - the rent of a property. In such cases, the valuation of the company shall be determined considering market value of its fixed asset and adjusting that for any liability.

To calculate the valuation of any business, we will require all the necessary documents as listed in the FAQ “What documents are required to submit for valuation”.

The valuation of a company can help you improve the way you manage your business let alone determine the business worth. A business valuation can help you achieve the following:
  • Determine asking price of your company
  • Strengthen your credibility
  • Track the strategic goals of your business
  • Investment /fund raising requirements, and many more

Valuing goodwill or a brand developed in-house (i.e. by incurring marketing expenditure, ensuring quality and meeting consumer expectations and perceptions) is always a challenge.The brand in order to have implications for valuation of a firm/business shall pass through two tests:
  • The brand must result into higher sales for the company compared to its competitors
  • Per unit price of the product that the company realises must be higher than similar products offered by competition.
If an in-house developed brand passes these two tests, a brand will have significant impact in calculating the value of a company
