Valuation of operating assets is as much a financial as a strategic assessment exercise. The valuation process may have multiple objectives, and establishing the fair price for the company is seldom the most important one. If carried out correctly, valuation sheds light on the key competitive advantages of the firm, crucial assets and the business strategy. Taking this a step further, the valuation exercise can assess relative merits of different business strategies, i.e. valuing strategy becomes the most important objective.
The course will focus on applied valuation only; all information used will be up-to-date and company valuations will be built on factual real-life cases. Multiple business strategies will be discussed from the US, European and Armenian business environments.
The best qualified participants will be offered the opportunity to join Inecobank’s team.
