Corporate Finance/Valuation Modelling

Drawing on nearly twenty years’ experience in corporate finance, we have the skills and the resources to execute your project appropriately.

Approach: Central to our approach to corporate finance and business valuation is an understanding of the need to tailor it in a suitable way for your business, based on realistic forecasts.  Applying an average multiple to a business that is anything but average is not what your business needs. It takes judgement and a true understanding of a business, its drivers and the market in which it operates to choose the right valuation methodology (Absolute or Relative or valuation? Discounted cash flow or Asset based methodology? Revenue based multiple or profit based multiple?)

Resources: When carrying out a business valuation exercise we refer to extensive corporate finance databases giving transaction multiples for thousands of M&A transactions.
Debt & Equity Fund Raising and Financial Modelling: Much of the financial modelling work we have carried out has been as part of a fund raising process. We can provide a model to smooth the fund raising process which meets the requirements of lenders/investors.

Training: Having trained investment banking recruits in business valuation techniques, Simon can provide in- house corporate finance training to give delegates a practical “non ivory tower” approach to business valuation.

Example Project:

Corporate Finance project for travel business investigating sale/merger options involving production of integrated five year forecast model, analysis of public announcements/ filings to establish valuation benchmarks and producing business valuation from this information.


“Used Simon for a private corporate finance project and was impressed with his understanding of our business and his quick grasp of the market we operate in. He is commercially focussed, worked hard but the real reason we like him is his ability to see Big Picture. Clever guy.”
