Edson Gissoni – Executive Partner of DMS PARTNERS

A significant number of executives and business owners, when faced with calculating the economic value of their organizations (“valuation”) or even with the value offered by a potential buyer or investor, whether in a formal process of conducting a total or partial sale, or just out of curiosity, feel disappointed or frustrated, as they expected a value much higher than that resulting from calculations carried out by recognized market techniques such as: Discounted Cash Flow and/or Market Multiples.

This disappointment or frustration is often due to the fact that most executives or business owners dedicate much of their focus and attention mainly to the company's financial indicators (revenue, profit, sales volume, etc.), which It is

obviously important and impact the value of the company, but they forget about other variables that may be generating loss of value or perception of risk in the acquisition, from the point of view of a potential buyer or investor.

compared to other “players” in the market in the same segment.

• Companies with positive financial results, but with operational risks that

values that reduce the final economic value of the company.

• Companies with high growth rates in the main indicators of

revenue/margin, but cannot achieve the same growth impact

in the economic value of the company.

• Companies where the performance metrics of executive managers do not

necessarily serve the interests of the partners/owners.

focused on measurable results.

probability of success.
