Valuation of companies with relative low substance value (English)
Background: The difference between the market value and the book value of the companies has dramatically increased. One explanation is that the inflow of capital on the market has increased. Another explanation is that companies have a larger share of intellectual capital. The question is how this has influenced the company-valuator's use of valuation-models?
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to find out what relevance the substance valuation model has, the DCF-model has, and also discover new valuation-models, among company-valuators.
Method: The study was conducted as a qualitative interview-investigation. We interviewed three company-valuators and one company-partner, in four different consulting-firms.
Results: The study does only pay attention to the company-valuator's point of view. The substancevaluation-model is not frequently used. The DCF-model is the dominant valuation-model. Other used ways to value companies are relative valuation and real option valuation. Relative valuation is frequently used, while real options valuation is rare.
