The methodology for business valuations for mergers and acquisitions can be complex. Numerous issues are considered, including revenues, profits and cash flow; capital and working capital requirements; comparable deals; multiples; sales, earnings, EBITDA; book value and adjusted book value; purchase price allocation; etc. As such, M&A transactions require a knowledgeable and experienced valuation specialist.
The specialists in Arxis Financial’s “Business Valuation” practice provide clients with a comprehensible valuation that carefully considers critical factors in the M&A context.
