In addition to buying or selling an entire business, there are a number of different reasons for valuing a company:
- For investment purposes. A valuation can help with establishing a price in order to issue new shares
- To develop an internal market for shares. A valuation can help to trade shares in a business at a fair price
- To stimulate management. If the management of a company is performing poorly, a valuation is an effective method of focussing the attention and efforts of under-performing employees or rewarding those who consistently perform well.

Why Legal Help is Important
As part of a business reorganisation, valuations can occur in companies of any size and in any industry.
The process can be highly complex and can be considered to be an incredibly important event that will have an impact on your business, both in the short and long term – it is therefore imperative that you have the best legal experts at your side, not only to ensure everything progresses as it should, but also to make sure your business benefits from the best possible outcome.
In order to value a company, it is important to instruct a valuer who is well versed and has experience in valuing businesses.
Prior to this instruction, it is essential to obtain legal advice in order to review the company articles in order to ensure there is nothing within the documentation that could have a detrimental effect on the valuation. This could be contained within the articles of association or the shareholders’ agreement.
For example, if there are very restrictive terms within the confines of which the business must operate, this could have a negative effect on the valuation. There may be a reason for these terms or you may want to take the opportunity to amend them.
Whatever the terms of the company articles or shareholders agreement, it is important that they are fully understood within a legal context.
Whatever form your business reorganisation and valuation takes, we ensure full compliance with corporate laws and regulations, so your company and its directors can complete the valuation on a firm financial and legal basis.
We will work with your management team and advisers to ensure all legal aspects of the valuation are properly addressed. We are able to assist with any aspect this and will guide you through the technicalities of the process in a clear and concise way.
