Why do you need a business valuation?

Do you know the value of your company? Surprisingly, many owners do not make the time to estimate the value and potential of their company annually.

What is Valuation

Valuation determines the worth of an Asset. It can involve futuristic forecasting based on before and current performance but is not limited to revenues on profits only.

Security Valuation

While estimating security’s fair value, one must consider the amount one party is ready to pay another. A security’s inherent value has nothing to do with the market price. A stock or bond’s perceived value on an open exchange can fluctuate significantly based on who wants what and when, but this has nothing to say about its actual value, as seen in future revenue potential. Analysts must often tell if a company is undervalued or overpriced. They will look at the market to see its value and then compare that with how much they believe an asset should be valued based on its merits.

Assets or Liabilities Valuation

Valuations are conducted for assets or liabilities due to several reasons. Valuing an asset can be needed to complete merger and acquisition transactions, capital budgeting, investment analysis, litigation purposes, and financial reporting. For example, suppose you’re looking at the value of your company’s bonds to determine how much money they owe back. In that case, it might make sense that valuers would need to evaluate what they’re worth because people don’t usually give away things without expecting some compensation for their generosity!
