When it comes to selling a business, the most important question to ask is – how much is it worth? There’s no one way to value a company as each individual business is just that – individual. The seller will undoubtedly want a higher price than the potential buyer wants to offer so, like many business transactions, a compromise must be reached. The valuation of certain, tangible aspects of the company may be straightforward (such as land, equipment, or machinery), but what about the intangibles (such as trademark or reputation)? Where does one start to account for these?
This extensive book is informative and provides the answers to the questions above and more. With contribution from finance specialists, the reader will soon come to understand how to undertake share valuation and the role dividend policy plays in the valuation process. Gain an insight also into the world of stock market investment and stock exchange listings. Compelling reading!
