The Strategic Valuation

It is clearly of strategic importance to establish a beneficial valuation if you are considering embarking on any form of corporate finance transaction in your next period of trading. ‘The need to gain an insight to the future potential value is more important than that of understanding current value.’

Leadership teams planning rapid growth may wish to consider attracting new investors or making an acquisition as a catalyst growth. For these teams, specific valuation becomes a key component to developing and implementing growth strategies. Incorporating valuation into your activities means that you are able to plan for future value by fully understanding and valuing the platform from which you will be launching future expansion and with building a robust and compelling proposition for shareholders and investors.

The Strategic Valuation for acquirers is developed from both historical and up to date budgetary information and includes an analysis of your statutory and management accounts. We arrive at an accurate current valuation by utilising a number of valuation techniques specifically adapted for the TMT sector and in conjunction with our knowledge and deep understanding of current market place values in this sector. We can provide the option of a variable overlay model for future milestone valuation and advice can be extended to strength and weakness analysis and with preparing information for future transactions, including raising funds.

For shareholders and management teams looking to sell a business the objective would be to paint the business in the most positive light, identifying areas of opportunity or to ensure the strength of the business is fully demonstrated and that those factors which make your business more valuable to an acquirer are wholly recognised.

For sellers, the Strategic Valuation process will need to ensure that all financial and non-financial information is identified and developed to prepare the business for any future transaction. Obviously, it is vital that a business has a forecast and business plan, is able to demonstrate where you have come from and where a potential acquirer could take the business. A valuation may include a comprehensive road map with financial, commercial and operational activities that detail growth plans.
