Valuation methods

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)

The DCF valuation determines the net present value (NPV) of projected cash flows available to all providers of capital. This method is considered the most accurate and thorough valuation method. A major drawback of the DCF method however is that, in order to apply it properly, reliable cash flow projections are required.

Capitalisation of excess earnings methods

Profitability analysis is based on the (future) profits that the business can generate as a going concern. To determine this ‘normative result’, past results and the current capital structure will be analysed. The average, normalised result (after tax) will be capitalised against the assumed cost of capital. The surplus/deficiency of private equity will subsequently be added to/subtracted from this to arrive at the company value.

Choosing a valuation method

If performed correctly, these two methods will calculate the same company value. In practice, Marktlink chooses the method (or a combination of methods) that is most suitable to your specific needs.
