Startup valuation methods

Krzysztof CIESIELSKI
From the investors’ perspective, startups mean high risk and low liquidity. As a result, startup valuation is quite a challenge.

We will “protect” you (even if you don’t want us to)!

Takeovers, due to the government’s draft amendment to the act on controlling certain investments, is again hitting the front pages. In a nutshell, it will be up to the Chairman of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection to decide if the transaction may be carried out. This restriction concerns investors from outside the European Union and the European Economic Area. Reading between the lines, amid the current recession caused by SARS-COV-2 such regulations are mainly to stop the inflow of capital from Asia. However, frankly speaking, this will also affect other important investors, including those from the US or even those more “European” ones, from the UK.

The M&A transaction market is subject to business cycles. As it depends on the current situation of a business, there may be some ups and downs. Recently, due to the SARS-COV-2 pandemic and the emerging global economic crisis, company owners who planned to sell their businesses are now beginning to question the idea: does it make sense to sell a business at the time of a crisis?

Although over the last 25 years we could have been under the impression that the market situation is mostly affected by economic factors, the history teaches us that economic slowdowns were actually often a result of some natural phenomena, including an epidemic or poor harvest.

Financing an M&A deal

13 March 2020
Krzysztof CIESIELSKI
Contrary to what it may seem and what people usually think, there are different ways of financing transactions. Most entrepreneurs I work with say that cash is the source of funding. Sellers tend to assume that the buyer opts for this form of funding the deal. And indeed, it is the most popular method of payment in a transaction between the parties involved; however, it is good to know that cash is not the only option the buyer has in a transaction.

Mergers and acquisitions have been the basis of corporate development for the past one hundred years. An increase in trust and an improvement of the company situation, as well as access to sources of stable funding have contributed to a significant expansion of the global perspective within the area of M&A. An economic crisis is also conducive to the processes of company consolidation.
