Valuation & financial modeling

How much is a company worth?

This question often arises when a business is acquired or sold (e.g. fairness opinions), for tax or legal matters, for accounting purposes (e.g. PPA, impairment test) or when transferring (intangible) assets. Based on our long-standing experience and by applying recognized methods, we conduct valuations which are in line with your requirements.

In addition, we create customized financial models according to recognized modelling standards, which can support you in your decision-making process.

Due diligence

Understanding the numbers

M&A transactions offer great opportunities but also bear risks. The comprehensive analysis of the target entity is a critical success factor of the M&A deal.

On the buy-side, we support you with a focused analysis enabling you to make an informed investment decision. On the sell-side, we prepare a financial databook or vendor due diligence report which will provide bidders with the financial information required for their analysis.
