The concept of value can be manifested in various ways, whether through tangible or intangible assets within a business, an investment, or intellectual property. In the contemporary global economy, where opportunities abound at every turn, it becomes paramount for companies to possess the capability to determine whether these opportunities or transactions contribute positively or negatively to the overall value of the business.
What is Valuation?
Valuation is the procedure used to ascertain the current worth of a company, investment, or asset. It plays a critical role in aiding businesses and investors in making informed decisions about their financial strategies and potential opportunities.
This underscores the vital role valuations play in the decision-making process for a range of scenarios, including mergers and acquisitions, tax planning, dispute resolutions, corporate reorganization, and financial reporting or accounting.
Types of Valuation Services and How Qeeva Can Serve You
Valuation services are a crucial component of informed financial decision-making. Whether you are a business owner, an investor, or an individual looking to understand and harness the power of valuation, we will take you through the diverse areas of valuation services and their applications. Valuation services involve appraising business entities, ownership interests, securities, and partnership or limited liability company stakes, whether in private, public, or government-held organizations and therefore, it can be done in different ways.
- Business Valuation
Valuation of Business Interests encompasses the delivery of valuation opinions or consultancy services for assessing the worth of combined business interests or entire business entities. With this, you can understand the worth of your entire business or specific interests within it.
These assessments also encompass estimating the fair value of entire business enterprises as required by regulatory authorities or financial and accounting standards-setting bodies, particularly about an entity’s financial statements. Let’s check out examples of business valuation.
- Succession/Exit Planning
Numerous business owners invest significant time in building their enterprises, but a substantial portion of them neglect to adequately strategize their exit plans. Business exit planning is sometimes referred to as business succession planning, yet there are distinctions. Succession planning involves identifying potential successors and offering training or knowledge transfer to smoothly transition management within a closely held Nigerian business. Since 2008, Qeeva has collaborated with numerous Nigerian business owners and their advisors, guiding them through the business valuation process to assist them in attaining their financial goals.
- Intangible Assets Valuation:
Intangible assets encompass a broad spectrum of non-physical assets, ranging from brands, goodwill, and customer relationships to royalties, trade names, copyrights, and software. Valuing intangible assets can be challenging, especially when the asset isn’t generating income. This complexity is further exacerbated by the potential novelty of the associated technology, making it challenging to gauge its future cash flow potential and competitive advantages for the owner.
With Qeeva, you can dive into the world of intangible assets, including purchase price allocation for mergers and acquisitions.
- Purchase and Sales Agreement:
It’s not uncommon to find companies having multiple owners or partners in this current era. The sudden and unexpected departure of one co-owner can exert a significant influence on the future trajectory of the business. Consequently, many private companies, especially those with two or more owners, opt to engage in purchase and sale agreements. A meticulously crafted purchase and sale agreement serves as a strategic blueprint for the seamless transfer of business interests, particularly in specific circumstances, whether voluntary or involuntary. These circumstances often include retirement, disability, or the unfortunate event of a co-owner’s passing—commonly referred to as “triggering events.”
Qeeva plays a pivotal role in defining the valuation of one co-owner’s buyout of another co-owner’s stake in the company. We ensure transparency and that the agreements can further delineate the funding mechanisms and payment terms associated with the buyout in the event of triggering events.
- Fairness Opinions
Fairness opinions entail the issuance of a report, typically directed to a Board of Directors, offering a comprehensive assessment of the contemplated acquisition or disposition of assets or business interests. It is generally anticipated that the Board of Directors will place substantial reliance on the fairness opinion when making determinations regarding the advancement or finalization of a transaction.
Furthermore, it is commonly understood that third parties, beyond the Board, may require access to the fairness opinion. In certain instances, references to the fairness opinion report may also be necessary for documents or disclosures accessible to the wider public, thus underlining the significance of this evaluation in maintaining transparency and ensuring well-informed decision-making processes.
With Qeeva, you can always ensure equitable transactions through expert fairness opinions.
- Impairment Test
Impairment testing is a vital aspect of business valuation, ensuring that a company’s asset values are accurately reflected in its financial statements. This process involves evaluating whether an asset’s carrying value exceeds its recoverable amount, helping to prevent overvaluation and maintain financial transparency. In today’s dynamic business environment, where conditions constantly change, impairment testing is crucial for sound decision-making and financial stability. By regularly assessing and adjusting asset values, businesses can adapt to market fluctuations and position themselves for long-term success.

Additionally, growth projections, industry dynamics, and emerging technologies influence its worth. In today’s business landscape, comprehending and managing IP effectively is crucial for harnessing its substantial value.

Why Do You Need Valuation Services?
Businesses need valuation because it offers owners and entrepreneurs a comprehensive view of their business, revealing value drivers and detractors. Beyond preparing for a potential sale, it sets the stage for a strategic roadmap, highlighting risks and hidden opportunities. These insights empower you to enhance your business’s value before a sale or succession handover. Join in let’s see the reasons you or your business will need valuation services.
- Business Exit/Succession: Valuation is a very important step for any business owner who is planning a business exit or succession. In fact, it has to be a primary factor before the business is brought before buyers or deciding who would succeed you. Understanding the true value of your business gives you an idea of its worth, financials and the suitable person to take over or sell it to at the best price.
- Increasing Access to More Investors and Financing: One of the foremost questions asked when seeking investors to invest either for debt or equity, a valuation report is needed to help them gain an understanding of your business’s current financial standing.
- Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A): When a company expresses interest in acquiring your business, it becomes crucial to demonstrate the value of your business, its historical growth, and its future growth potential. Typically, prospective buyers aim to acquire or merge at the lowest possible cost. However, having a clear understanding of your business’s true value allows you to build a compelling case, supported by the appraised valuation figures you’ve received. This empowers you to negotiate from a position of knowledge and strength during M&A discussions.
- Forming an Employee Stock Ownership Plan: An ESOP permits workers to acquire company shares at a predetermined rate, granting advantages like tax incentives, capital injection, and limited liquidity for owners who opt to stay private. To initiate an ESOP, an annual valuation of the business is essential, as it determines the share’s pricing.
- Disagreements among shareholders or partners:
In the world of business, disputes between shareholders or partners can arise for various reasons, including differences in opinion, financial concerns, or changes in business direction. In such contentious situations, a thorough business valuation becomes essential. It offers an objective assessment of the business’s worth, aiding in the resolution of disputes by providing an equitable basis for decision-making. Valuations help parties involved in the conflict understand the true value of their stakes and can guide negotiations for a fair and amicable resolution.
