Business Valuation in Canada

Business Valuation in Canada cover

This book is intended to provide an in-depth understanding of the principles, methodologies and approaches used in business valuation. It is written from a practical perspective, and endeavours to bridge the gap between valuation theory and open market M&A practice. This book contains a detailed discussion of the most common valuation methodologies and the factors that influence the determination of valuation multiples and rates of return. It also addresses key issues that are frequently encountered in valuation assignments for Canadian businesses, such as special interest purchasers, foreign exchange risk, minority discounts and Canadian income tax considerations.

Each valuation mandate and open market transaction is unique, and there’s no substitute for thorough and objective analysis, combined with experience and judgment. However, the principles and practices set out in this book will help business executives, valuation practitioners, M&A advisors and other professionals in rendering credible valuation advice and conclusions.

  • Understand of the principles, methodologies and approaches used in business valuation;
  • Address the unique facts and circumstances of each valuation by providing a well-established framework of principles and practices; and
