There are a number of reasons why businesses may need to be valued. The most common reason is when a business is being sold. In that instance it is obvious why both the seller and the buyer would be interested in knowing the “true” value of the business.

Other drivers for business valuation include internal reorganisation and requests from lenders or investors who want to know what the business is worth before committing themselves. It is worth noting that there is more than one method of valuing a business. The method(s) chosen will depend on the type of business as well as the reason for selling it.

In this webinar Caryn will be looking at how you can arrive at a value for a business using various techniques, from assessing the intrinsic value of a business to basing the value on future earnings.
