Business Valuation and Restructuring

Business Restructuring and Valuation is very essential for a business owner or a company to determine the precise worth of the business or to make significant changes to the operational structure which will certainly help in selling or buying a business, doing litigation settlement, initiating capital restructuring, and for expansion of the business.

A high-level systematic valuation analysis conducted by a trained valuation professional has several considerable advantages. Many of these advantages are lost on businesses that are attempting to cut costs.

These advantages are important in negotiating a reasonable price for selling their company and reducing the management’s financial liability in litigation.

Assets, liabilities, income, management, and location are responsible for driving value to a business.

The method of assessing a company’s current economic value is known as business valuation. To evaluate the true value, a variety of techniques are used. The most common standard of worth is fair market value. A fair market value calculation is based on what an informed, prepared, and discretionary buyer will likely pay in the market to an informed, prepared, and discretionary seller. Estimation of fair market value may be based on either historical events or future predictions. Various considerations, such as the company’s management, capital structure, potential earning opportunities, and market value of its properties, are considered before a value is assigned to it.

Following are the ways to value a Company or Business

  • Intrinsic Valuation
    It connects a commodity’s intrinsic value to its inherent characteristic. The cash flow’s ability to produce and risk are analysed. In layman’s terms, intrinsic value is measured using discounted cash flow. Where companies have stable cash flows, the present value of an asset is a direct product of potential cash flows.
  • Relative Valuation
    Comparable asset pricing is measured in relation to common variables such as earnings, book value, revenue, and cash flows.
  • Contingent Claim Valuation
    Option pricing models are used to assess the value of assets that have option characteristics.

Asset Method

To measure the value of the overall business enterprise, all of the underlying business assets are considered after deducting the liabilities.

The asset approach must take into account the economic concept of substitution. This approach often takes into account the costs of developing a company of the same economic feasibility as the one under consideration.

In a sole proprietorship, all assets belong to the owner, and separating assets for the company and personal use can be difficult. This method can be extended to a business, as it will help in the selling of a company.

Income Method

The ability to produce wealth in the future, according to the Income Method, represents the true worth of a company.
