Valuation of intangible assets is a complex exercise. The non-physical form of intangible assets makes it difficult to identify the future economic benefits that the enterprise can expect to derive from the intangible assets. Many intangible assets do not have alternative use and cannot be broken down into components or parts for resale. Further, intangibles assets do not have an active market and hence it becomes difficult to value them separately from the business. However, valuing intangible assets is a prominent requirement to know the actual worth of business in today’s environment.

 

Investors, lenders and other stake holders are getting increasingly alert to the importance and valuation of Intangible assets. The importance of valuing intangible assets arises from the fact that the reported net worth of business may not represent its true value, which more often is in the form of intangibles. Also, IndAS 38 requires impairment assessment of intangible assets on an annual basis and whenever there is an indication that the intangible asset is impaired.

 

The need for valuation of intangible assets is for Business Combinations, financial reporting under Ind AS or IFRS, Join-venture negotiations, licensing and Franchising, Impairment testing and for Internal assessments etc. Thus, considering the growing need and importance of valuation of intangible assets we at Bhuta Shah & Co. LLP helps clients to estimate and assign the value to their intangible assets using valuation approaches and methodologies which are globally recognized.

Financial models are used to estimate the valuation of a business or to compare businesses to their peers in the industry.

Transaction Structuring and Advisory Services:

Transactions are significant events in the life of a business, so the stakes are high for both buyers and sellers. Inorganic growth is broadly driven by larger economic themes as organizations today have to reconfigure their strategic initiatives to match macro events and adjust to externalities that change the dynamics of their value chain or competitive landscape. Inorganic expansion can catalyse creation of substantial shareholder wealth, but equally, it can also erode value.

Acquisitions, mergers, amalgamations, demergers, joint ventures all these activities have been growing rapidly over the last few years, aided by increased foreign investment and changes in Government policy. As deals grow in size and become more complex, the regulations surrounding these transactions also grow more stringent. Both the target and the acquirer require expert guidance and advice on financial facets of the transaction and their implications for them.
