2. What is the company valuation process?

One of the most common questions about business valuation services is, "What are the steps to valuing a business.
  • Confidentiality and commitment agreement.
    • As with most professional services, the relationship between the client and our consultancy will typically be established in a written agreement (contract). This agreement will define the scope of the appraisal project, the obligations of each one, the estimated time frame, the fees and other important elements of the relationship between the parties. A representative of the company will also be required, who will be responsible for making the project progress within the contracted term and scope.
  • Information request.
    • The next step in the business valuation process is information gathering. This usually comes in the form of a list of requested data and documents, such as financial statements, organizational chart, manager qualifications, owner compensation data, brief descriptions of the history of the business, its products and services, its customer base and the competitive scenario.
  • preliminary analyzes
    • After obtaining all the necessary documentation, we will organize and carry out initial analyses, independent research of the industry, economic drivers and other questions in order to prepare the interview with the owners and/or key members of the management.  
  • Interviews with management and company visit 
    • This is the moment where Valini will seek to understand “the story behind the numbers”, the segment in which the company is inserted, the organizational structure, marketing activities, customers and main risk factors. A significant part of this discussion it will also involve the company's historical financial performance and future prospects. This interview can be conducted in person. These points are defined in the confidentiality agreement.  Knowing the company's facilities is often helpful, but not a requirement. Even so, a site visit allows certain qualitative judgments about the business as well as a confrontation with the information provided.  
  • Valuation Analysis 
    • We will synthesize the information, documentation, interview results and independent research to determine how these factors affect the company. It is now that we will define one or more appropriate assessment methodologies. When using multiple valuation methodologies, each will normally give a different indication of the value of the stake. At this point we will use our experience and judgment to reconcile these disparate indications of value in order to arrive at a final opinion.  
Reporting and follow-up discussions
  • At this stage, the work can be done in two ways: 
    • Issuance of a final report in the form of a "draft", allowing the client and its main managers to review the facts and reasoning described in the report and after discussions issuance of the final report. 
    • Validation of each step during the evaluation and ending with the issuance of the final report.
