Business Valuation Training by Dr Prem
Understanding Business Valuation
Do you have a business plan but no idea how much it is worth? Are you worried about how to value your business? If your answer to these questions is yes and if you have no idea on what the venture capitalists look for in a business model, you need to understand the concept of business valuation. It is necessary for business professionals to be familiar with the fundamentals of valuing a business and have a good understanding of the relative strengths of different valuation methodologies.
The five most common ways to value a business are asset valuation, earnings valuation, future maintainable earnings valuation, relative valuation (comparable company & comparable transactions), and discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation.
DCF is the base of the majority of all valuations. However, DCF analysis is often badly applied in practice. Appropriate training can help the participants to focus on applying a DCF in a real world case study. It introduces business professionals to an introductory or intermediate level of valuation experience.
