    • Glimpse of RBI Guidelines for FDI and ODI Valuation and Our Suggested Approach
    • ConclusionRBI has prescribed DFCF as the only valuation method in case of FDI for unlisted co’s; but has not provided any guidance on its technical aspects.Since valuation is essentially a forward looking exercise , It is generally believed that DFCF is one of the most acceptable Valuation method used byBusiness valuers worldwide; however DFCF for all FDI transactions (like minority stake/start up valuation etc) may not yield Fair Value in line withthe Commercial understanding. However Law being such, suitable Logical adjustments may be necessary on a case to case basis. The price to becomputed using the DFCF method would normally be much higher than that computed under the erstwhile CCI guidelines which followed a fixedformal approach. Therefore it is needed to be used with great care as it’s a very sensitive model where the values get affected significantly with asmall change in assumption like Beta value, Terminal growth rate, Risk free rate of Return and market return. As such, the Valuation approaches /methods being applied must take into account the standard of value and premise of value and also suitable adjustments to make Valuationdiscounts and Premium based on the facts of each case.
