Throughout the course of your business and the transactions you make, you will come across assets of various types and features. Ensuring liquidity of assets depends on whether you are able to determine their value in terms of money. However, there are other reasons why preparing a valuation of assets may prove necessary - transaction goals (trading a certain good) being only one of them. Most often, valuation of a given asset is prepared in connection with reporting requirements or to serve as an opinion in on-going court proceedings. Valuation is also used in management of certain assets as a tool for identifying factors that promote the growth of their value.

In my previous post I brought up the topic of difficulties which result from predicting conditions under which entrepreneurs will have to operate in the future. This is indeed a key challenge when specifying the scale and directions in which a company develops, as they are the key factors influencing the ability to create value. Therefore, despite difficulties, one should neither neglect nor belittle this very process.

Business activity is continuously connected with foreseeing the future. It is exactly the future, and not the present conditions that decides about success of any enterprise. Whether the enterprise will turn out to be profitable and succeed on the market will result from its ability to foresee prevailing conditions on a widely understood market in the following years.

Such questions can be multiplied endlessly. What therefore can we do to improve the quality of formulated economic forecasts, and, at the same time, to increase chances of achieving goals established before we start a business venture?

If both the buyer and the seller are determined to conclude the agreement and their relations are based on mutual trust, they often decide to carry out only one valuation and entrust its preparation to an external and independent consultant. The outcome of such valuation is usually a single value,  achieved according to the fair value measurement standard.

A consistent opinion on the value of an enterprise leaves no room for negotiation between the parties to the transaction, which definitely hinders a successful closure of the transaction.

What really causes that contemporary market for corporate control is so active and abounds in numerous M&A transactions?

It is evident that in the free-market economy, especially in branches with low entry barriers such as consulting, a customer has a special position. It is our client who, as a buyer of goods and services, determines the success, or failure, of  business we – professional advisors and consultants, run.

Company valuation is a topic most managers and owners are likely to face at some point in running their large-sized businesses. The study is usually elaborated in connection with a prospective company acquisition/sale transaction, allotment of an organised part of the company into the structures of a new entity, or in relation to conditions imposed by regulations on financial review. These are, of course, only some examples – the list of circumstances that require or simply contribute to preparing a professional company valuation is much longer.
