Knowing the value of an asset and its key determinants is a prerequisite for intelligent decision making in all aspects of business, right from choosing investments for a portfolio to deciding on the appropriate price to pay or receive in a takeover. Such expertise is extremely valuable in finalising investments as well as making financing and dividend choices while running a business. We can make reasonable estimates of value for most assets, and the same fundamental principles determine the values of all types of assets, real as well as financial.
This introduction to Business Valuation offers insights into the valuation process and outlines the role it plays in portfolio management, acquisition analysis and corporate finance. In finance, valuation analysis is required for tax assessment, business analysis, and basic bookkeeping and accounting, among other things.
During the one-day workshop, all sessions will offer highly technical content with workshops catering to all levels of experience. The workshop aims to offer professionals comprehensive knowledge about valuing companies and businesses.
We are looking forward to your participation!
