Maximising Your Company’s Value

Following the first workshop session on Demystifying Private Equity in May, join us for session two: Maximising Your Company’s Value: It’s your life’s work, value it. KPMG has, for the third year running, topped the Thomson Reuters league tables for more deals closed than any other global mid-market adviser – 446 deals in 2018.  With the help of our experts, including our guest speakers who are leaders in their respective industries, we will share the insights developed from our extensive deal tradecraft.

Valuation multiples have remained strong following a significant increase in the last few years, but transaction multiples can vary widely between businesses and sectors. How might buyers value your business – and how does a headline value translate into proceeds for shareholders?  Some businesses are well prepared for a sale and some react to an approach   – what can you do to be prepared and how does it help maximise value?  Finally, we will cover some key legal considerations and how you can best prevent value leakage pre and post-deal.

We will address the following questions:

  • Valuation Multiples
  • Valuation Methodologies
  • EV to Equity bridge – headline price to cash in your pocket
  • Value creation
  • Protecting against value leakage
  • Key legal considerations
