Calculating the value of assets and companies to accelerate better financial decisions.

Business valuations and asset valuations are critical tasks. Errors in calculations or a misinterpretation of the data can lead to a devaluation of your business, or money left on the table during negotiations. Our team understands how important it is to get an accurate and transparent calculation. That’s why companies rely on Darby Finance for well-documented business valuations to make better financial decisions.

Business Valuations

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Analysis

Darby Finance commonly uses a DCF analysis to value companies. This method uses the time value of money concept. All future cash flows are estimated and then discounted to determine the value.  Using our customized and dynamic Excel-based DCF models, you’ll get modeling best practices, peer reviews, and application of rigorous modeling-excellence standards.

Net Asset Valuation (NAV) Analysis

A NAV analysis is a great alternative to a traditional DCF analysis if your business or investment opportunity cannot assume perpetual growth. Common examples include energy and mining companies as they cannot assume perpetual growth. This method allows investors to assume a production decline rate and calculate revenue until reserves run out.

Comparable Companies Analysis

Also known as “peer group analysis” or “equity comps,” a comparable company's analysis is used in company valuations and is a relative valuation method.

Comparable Transaction Analysis

Otherwise known as the “precedent transaction analysis” or “deal comps,” a comparable transaction analysis is used to apply “known knowns” from other recent transactions that are similar in structure to your company. The value of this analysis is in using real-market examples to help identify known costs and risks.

Sum-of-the-Parts (SOTP) Analysis

The SOTP analysis is also referred to as the “break-up analysis.” SOTP is commonly used to make a business case for a divestiture or spin-off of one or more businesses.

Comparable Transaction Analysis
