Course Overview

Every whole business or company unit has an economic value and the general process of determining the fair value of a business is termed business valuation. Business valuation can be done for various reasons including sale value, establishing partner ownership, taxation, and even divorce proceedings.

This course aims to develop proficiency in valuing assets and liabilities through a learning process that blends concepts with applications. The participants will get extensive exposure through project work on business/company valuation and by analyzing case studies. During this top-level training we will provide you with hands-on tools for building financial models in Excel in order to determine the value of a company:

» On a stand-alone basis.

» In a Leveraged Buy-Out (LBO) situation.

» In a buy-side Merger & Acquisition (M&A) scenario.

The program concludes with an introduction to sensitivity and scenario analysis, which is used to improve the base case valuation. This firstly includes a fundamental understanding of the activities of the business and the reasons for undertaking the valuation. These issues are explored before various valuation methodologies are outlined and demonstrated. The technical and practical issues involved in valuation are discussed, as are the limitations of the various methodologies and the qualitative issues that may affect them.

The business valuation modelling training provided in this course will be valuable to those who are looking for a detailed and step-by-step explanation of how to value a company.
