Valuations can be a useful instrument in many different scenarios a business can find itself in. Our team of valuations experts can advise you on a wide range of business requirement including financing process and cost of capital advice. Our Valuations team also helps you go beyond the numbers resolving disputes related to transactions and succession planning.
Valuations in the context of a financing process can be performed because of a variety of reasons. To offer comfort to providers who are financing a company where the value resides mainly in intangible assets (e.g. in management contracts or in other assets that are not necessarily expressed on the balance sheet of the company), to support the financing structure in a cross-border deal or for other reasons.
As the business environment is becoming increasingly complex and demanding, more and more frequently business partners end up in a dispute. Such disputes are resolved either amicably or (more frequently) through mediation, arbitration or litigation.
We offer dispute services related to transactions, including dissolution of joint ventures, determination of price per value under shareholder agreements for good/bad levers as well as non-transactional disputes. Our role in this process can include:
A good succession plan can be the first step in maintaining the strength of an enterprise and safeguarding the family’s prosperity for generations to come. We provide owners with insights into the fair market value of their companies and a basis for further succession planning. In this context, we can cooperate closely with KPMG’s succession planning specialists.
Estimating realistic costs of capital is crucial when making investment or transaction related decisions or for impairment testing exercises (IAS 36).
The risk free rate, risk premium derived from the market risk premium and beta factor, terminal value growth rate as well as additional risk premiums, such as country risk premium, are essential for determining the cost of capital.
