Financial Modeling Service Features

Financial models are typically built for, and relied upon, to support business decisions. Good financial models provide insightful information, allowing you to explore the financial impact of strategic decisions and support your business plan or investment decision. We can add value to your project by maximizing the impact of your Financial Model as a decision-making tool. Your model will also be supported by a proper assessment from an accounting and tax perspective.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the three main factors affecting the valuation valuing of a company?

There are only three approaches to valuing a business: the asset approach, the income approach, and the market approach. For most businesses, the asset approach is not typically relied upon as it is more generally utilized for businesses that do not have a substantial intangible value. That leaves the income and market approaches.

The income approach can be simplified to this equation: value equals an earnings metric of the company divided by the risk, or discount rate, associated with achieving that earnings stream into the future. The market approach can be simplified with this equation: value equals an earnings metric of the company multiplied by a multiple.
