CPD Course: Business valuations

Business Valuation

A company has many moving and complex parts, making valuing it a difficult process. Yet, accurate business valuations are essential as any inaccuracies or poor assumptions could cost a company millions or, in some cases, billions! 

As a finance professional, you may one day be involved in supporting strategic moves that require business valuation skills, whether that means advising on acquisitions, divesting a division or helping an organisation to raise finance. This course is designed to introduce you to a toolbox of different methods for valuing businesses, as well as give you the knowledge to select the most suitable approach in a variety of scenarios.

Provides 8 hours of CPD

What you’ll learn:

    • Why and when businesses seek valuation so that you can identify situations in which business valuations are required  
    • Business valuation techniques for quoted and unquoted entities and the pros and cons of each so that you can decide on the best approach for a particular company
    • Asset-based valuation methods – these provide a simple way for calculating the minimum value of a company 
    • Earnings-based valuation approaches which can be used to value a company against its peers in the same industry 
    • How to use the dividend valuation model – a highly useful method for valuing an all-equity firm with predictable dividend streams 
    • The discounted cash flow method for valuing a company, taking into account its future earning power 
    • Methods for valuing intangible assets so that you can value these assets that are typically important to a company’s value but more difficult to quantify financially!

    Applying what you learn:
    This course also offers a range of practice questions to reinforce your understanding of business valuation. This will ensure that you’re in the best possible position to apply what you’ve learnt to your role!
