Mr. Chander Sawhney, Partner & Head – Valuation & Deals, Corporate Professionals shared his thoughts as a guest Speaker on Relative Valuation - Techniques & Application at a Business Valuation Masterclass organised by VC Circle on 31st August, 2016.
Relative Valuation in which value of an asset or liability is done by comparing it to its Peers is pervasive and preferred for ascertaining Fair Value at a point of time as it reflects the market positioning of the Industry and Peers at that time. While Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) method is applied for arriving at Fundamental Valuation, most M&A transaction are based on Relative Valuation multiples (mostly Earnings based). The valuation ratio typically expresses the valuation as a function of a measure of Key Financial Metrics like PE, EV/EBITDA, EV/Sales or Book Value Multiple.
But before using a multiple, one should know the fundamentals determining the multiple and how changes impact it. Sanity check through use of fundamental valuation method like DCF is strongly recommended.
