Company Valuations

Company valuations are often needed in difficult or hectic circumstances. And the reasons are varied: takeovers, mergers, third-party bids, shareholder disputes, a potential sale, arbitration or financial reporting.

 

How valuations add value

Company valuations should be transparent and unambiguous. They’re not just about the figures either. A meaningful company valuation considers and incorporates all relevant technical, legal and corporate information. Benefit from BDO’s proven track record in company valuations.
