Valuation

Valuation is subjective by definition; every object or service is valued differently, depending on the time, context, expectations and risks involved.

Valuation is subjective by definition; every object or service is valued differently, depending on the time, context, expectations and risks involved. The most common type of business valuation is performed for the purpose of strategic acquisitions, transfer of ownership, MBIs, MBOs, or in respect of succession or inheritance issues.

Because future performance is the most important variable in mergers and acquisitions, Marktlink generally calculates the economic value of a company based on the future cash flows expected, taking into account possible risks and uncertainties connected to the company and its industry.

Several valuation methods are used, such as the discounted cash flow (DCF) method, and our professionals use (a combination of) those that are most suitable for your specific company.

In addition to these general company valuations, Marktlink also specialises in valuations for the purpose of:

  • Damage disputes;
  • Fiscal and legal settlements;
  • Stock and option agreements;
  • Financial reporting (e.g. impairment).

The Marktlink team currently has three business valuation specialists (‘Registered Valuators’). These specialists have successfully completed the Business Valuation programme at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM Erasmus) and they are members of the NIRV (Dutch Institute for Registered Valuators).
