Maximising Your Company’s Value: It’s your life’s work, value it.

Valuation multiples have been strong and rising, but the 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 prepared extensively for sale and some react to an approach – what can you do to be prepared and how does it help maximise value? Finally, the question of tax, what can you do to incentivise your team to drive value for you, and how can you minimise your tax bill and risks.

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 tax considerations
