Business Valuation Analysis

An independent business valuation analysis can be conducted for all or parts of a business. Such a valuation requires specialised industry specific know-how to reflect the relevant sector specific valuation drivers and trends.

The business valuation analysis is based on a comprehensive financial model, including projections. Generally accepted valuation techniques such as discounted cash flow (DCF), trading multiples, transaction multiples and the net asset value approach are combined to determine the fair market value.

Asset Valuation Report

Palladium Capital’s asset valuation services are predominantly rendered to creditors that require an independent valuation of the collateral pledged for a particular debt facility or to validate the fairness of a transaction. Such asset valuations are typically updated periodically.
