We Specialize in Business Valuations for Diverse Industries

Determining a reliable valuation requires more than just strong accounting knowledge. It requires professional judgment and discretion. Contrary to common belief, it is not about just “getting to a number”.

The consequences of an unreliable business valuation could mean paying too much in a transaction, selling for too low, shareholder conflicts and disputes, legal cases (and the associated costs), and failed start-ups.

Getting around this means engaging with a valuations advisor that takes a structured approach, provides clear rationale behind assumptions, displays sound judgment, and considers more than one valuation methodology.

They undertake their work with a deep understanding of your business’s operating model and the industry in which it operates; deriving a reliable valuation estimate from which key decisions can be made with confidence. Be wary of those that emphasize a speedy turnaround or quick ‘back of the hand’ answers. You could be leaving large sums of money on the table.

From a local café chain to a large listed telecommunications company – our valuations have enabled businesses to be bought, sold, or restructured; accounts to be properly recognized, and capex projects to be approved & implemented successfully.
