Objectives and process in valuing a commercial enterprise

1. Determining the value of units or shares

Their price in publicly traded companies can be easily verified. Establishing the real price in the case of non-public companies is a challenge that Amrita’s certified consultants can help you with.

2. Determining the value of assets

Asset valuation is one of the most important things that every company needs to do. It involves the process of determining the value of a particular property, including stocks, bonds, buildings, machinery or land, which usually takes place when a company or asset needs to be sold, insured or taken over by another management. Assets can be categorized into tangible and intangible.

  • Tangible assets: are in physical form and are purchased to produce products or goods for the organization or to provide the services it offers. Tangible assets can be categorized as: fixed assets (land, buildings, machinery and equipment, vehicles, etc.) or as current assets (inventories, goods, receivables, cash).
  • Intangible assets: do not have a physical form, but still provide future benefits for the company. These may include patents, logos, franchises, utility designs and trademarks. Valuations can be made on either an asset or a liability, such as obligations or bonds issued by a company.
