What is the value of my company? How do I determine that value? An objective valuation of a company is the key to a succesful acquisition. Our advisors determine the value of a company based on the usual valuation methods. For real estate companies, holding companies or in the absence of returns, the valuation of the company is carried out on the basis of the adjusted equity.
We use an international database when searching for comparable companies to calculate the weighted average capital cost and the EBITDA market multiple. We are also happy to help you in maximizing the business value through value coaching. This involves responding to the most important drivers that determine the company's value, so that they lead to maximum leverage on the company valuation.
