Determining the value of a company (or the valuation of a portion of that business) is a step often taken in connection with an acquisition transaction, sale or purchase of a company. In addition, situations involving corporate succession within a family, the buyout of another shareholder or a divorce can constitute a ground for carrying out an enterprise valuation. Whatever the reason for determining the value of a company, it is important that an investigation of this kind is carried out by experienced valuation specialists.
Before a sale is finalised, it is a good idea to conduct a thorough investigation into the corporate aspects of the company in question. This type of research, known as due diligence or vendor due diligence, can prevent a situation in which unwelcome surprises come to light after you have closed the deal.
