Valuing a Business for Investment

Date: Thu 26 November 2020
Time: 2:00PM - 3:30PM
Where: Online Webinar

It is often said that a business is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Businesses are often valued by their price to earnings ratio (P/E), or multiples of profit. The P/E ratio is suited to businesses that have an established track record of profits.

Working out an appropriate P/E ratio to use can be driven by profits – if a business has high forecast profit growth, it might suggest a higher P/E ratio. And if a business has a good record of repeat earnings, it may have a higher P/E ratio, too.

In this webinar, we will look at ways of valuing businesses, so that you can establish a starting point from which to negotiate a deal with the investor.
• What information do you need to value a business?
• Ways to value a business
• Using forecast numbers
• What can affect the valuation that will not be in the numbers?
• Coming up with a valuation range
