What makes a business valuator reliable?

company valuations

Business valuations must be unbiased and independent and provided by a qualified person.

Our valuations are completed by experienced valuators with a professional designation (CFA, CPA, or CBV). In order to remain independent, we also provide fee-for-service valuation reports in accordance to CBV standards so you and other parties can rely on a third-party & independent valuation report.

About Canadian Business Valuation Standards

Business valuations are created by professionals with different designations in Canada. Global financial professionals such as CFA Charterholder, CPA Canada Chartered Accountants, and Business Valuators (ABV and CBV) are well recognized in the valuation industry. Each professional designation has its own own professional code of ethics and standards of professional conduct.

About Certified Business Valuation Reports

Businesses might need forensic valuations for courts, taxation purposes, and regulatory compliances. Canada’s Chartered Business Valuator (CBV) Institute with its main focus on valuation has practice standards that outline the requirements and purposes for different valuation reports. The CBV Practice Standards include three assurance levels and six types of reports.

Which company valuation report do I need?

The level of assurance and the type of report required depend upon three things – Purpose, Timeline, and Resources available.

We will first determine the purpose of the business valuation. Determine the type and use of the valuation report. For example, if you are a private equity group reviewing multiple offers for your deal flow, you might only need a lower assurance calculation report as the purpose is to shortlist a number of companies to a few. The initial consulting meeting is free of charge.

Once we decided we can help, we will quote you and move on to the engagement phase. We will determine the details of applicable legislation, governing contracts and other relevant factors. Compile background information including basic business data, financial data, industry research and other relevant records. An engagement letter will be drafted and provide details of the deliverable and the timeframe.

We will collect relevant information for the business valuation. There are three categories of qualitative information. Information about the company, the industry, and the economy. The research typically includes industry trend, business successful key factors, value drivers and opportunities. A Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT ) analysis analysis is provided.

The objective of this process is to quantify the company value based on the purpose of the valuation and collected information. Quantitative analysis within the business valuation context is dynamic, meaning different types of analysis are usually included. We would identify the trend and what caused them and analyze the financial information and separate recurring and non-recurring items. Use different valuation metrics that are suitable for the subject business valuation.
