Business Valuation

Business Valuation is a technique of measuring the fair value of an interest in existing company or business, expressed in monetary terms at a particular point of time. Fair value is the value of an asset or liability in an arm’s length transaction between unrelated willing and knowledgeable parties.

Companies are asking for conducting a business valuation for many reasons such as:

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

  • Acquiring an asset or shares of a potential target
  • Merging with another entity
  • Developing Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) for new acquired assets in compliance with IFRS 3 – Business Combination, IFRS 13 – Fair Value Measurements

Equity Change

  • Introducing a new shareholder/partner into a company
  • Initial Public Offerings (IPO)
  • Spinoffs

Corporate Restructuring

  • Disposal of an equity stake in a company
  • Debt financing
  • Bankruptcy

  • Land
  • Buildings
  • Machinery and equipment
  • Investment property carried at cost
  • Intangible assets
  • Goodwill
  • Investments in subsidiaries, associates, and joint ventures carried at cost
  • Assets carried at revalued amounts under IAS 16 and IAS 38

Financial Instruments Impairment Testing

Conducted on an annual basis for assets, which are subject to IAS 39 such as:
