Transaction Comparables Valuation 

In order to value a business that might be bought or sold, we learn how to look at historical acquisitions of similar businesses, to estimate a fair transaction or takeover value of a business. This session is complementary to Trading Comparables Valuation, but rather than listed peers, looks at recent historical deals where control was achieved by the buyer, to give a sense or fair value in a transaction context. This technique is used in M&A advisory and Private Equity to estimate the value of an entire business and the synergies that might be achieved by a buyer, rather than a small parcel of shares.
