Chapter – 03Valuation for Merger and Acquisition3.1Valuation for Merger and acquisition:When valuing a company as a going concern, there are three main valuation methods used byindustry practitioners: (1)DCF analysis, (2) comparable company analysis, and (3) precedenttransactions.These are the most common methods of valuation used ininvestment banking,equity research, private equity, corporate development, mergers & acquisitions (M&A),leveraged buyouts (LBO), and most areas of finance. When valuing a business or asset, there arethree broad categories that each contains their own methods. The Cost Approach looks at what itcosts to build something and this method is not frequently used by finance professionals to valuea company as a going concern. Next is the Market Approach, this is a form ofrelativevaluationand frequently used in the industry. It includes Comparable Analysis, PrecedentTransactions.Finally, the discounted cash flow (DCF) approach is a form ofintrinsicvaluationand is the most detailed and thorough approach to valuation modeling.Method 1: Comparable AnalysisComparable company analysis(also called “trading multiples” or “peer group analysis” or“equity comps” or “public market multiples”) is a relativevaluation methodin which youcompare the current value of a business to other similar businesses by looking at tradingmultiples like P/E,EV/EBITDA, or other ratios.Multiples ofEBITDAare the most commonvaluation method. The “comps” valuation method provides an observable value for the business,based on what companies are currently worth. Comps are the most widely used approach, as theyare easy to calculate and always current.Method 2: Precedent TransactionsPrecedent transactions analysisis another form of relative valuation where we compare thecompany in question to other businesses that have recently been sold or acquired in the sameindustry. These transaction values include the take-over premium included in the price for whichthey were acquired. These values represent thevalue of a business. They are useful for M&Atransactions, but can easily become stale-dated and no longer reflective of the current market astime passes. They are less commonly used than Comps or market trading multiples.
