A skilled, experienced and independent advisor dealing with your special desires and circumstances is a key factor in any successful valuation. The renowned quotation of Warren Buffet "it is far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price" shows best the importance of a valuation within a transaction.
Is the scope of valuation consistent with the criteria established at the beginning? Is it possible to accept a going concern scenario to valuate a company, including its assets required for operation? Does it involve a majority or a minority stake? Are the securities liquid? Does the valuation concern a listed company or a private SME?
The valuation process may also hide various obstacles. These include insufficient adjustments to the specific circumstances, inadequate valuation methods or issues related to different accounting standards.
