Business Valuations
 
Business valuations are widely described as being an art rather than a science, since different valuation models are available which yield different results. Selecting the most appropriate model requires highly technical skills and experience to arrive at the appropriate economic value of an owner’s interest in the various scenarios which also include the geographical location and economic environment in which the business operates. The need for business valuations arises in a variety of circumstances, mainly during business acquisitions and mergers, sale of a going concern business and litigation.
 
Business Plans
 
Planning is one of the pillars of each business function and an important key to success. Business plans are important tools in the decision-making process involving the formation of goals and successively the formulation of a plan which would help in achieving the predetermined goals.

Business plans apply both to for-profit and not-for–profit organisations and can be either internally or externally focused. Business plans as decision making tools can be applied in the following processes, amongst others:
  • Total Quality Management (TQM);
  • Management by objective;
  • Strategic planning.
Preparing a business plan requires a breadth of expertise from different business disciplines. The firm is well positioned to service clients requiring experience of professionals from various sectors and disciplines.
 
Due Diligence
 
Due diligence in the business world encompasses the investigation of an enterprise or a specific business function. Due diligence can prove to be a useful tool to both existing and potential investors in assessing a potential investment in relation to the risk tolerance and investment strategy.
 
Our team is capable of providing you with reports which help you as an investor make the right decision.
