Understanding Corporate valuation is not only a pre-requisite during different types of restructuring phase of the company. It is required at frequent intervals to identify economic value creation & any destruction if any occurred. It is also important to note that the value is different from a price.
The process of valuation consists of the detailed & comprehensive analysis taking into account the past, present & future earnings prospects & analysis of physical plus intangible assets & general economic & the industry conditions.
Determining the realistic value of the firm is indeed a difficult process. Sometimes the market price of the share of the company may be the approximate indication of a firm. Market price again depends on the current earnings & future growth.

Materiality may be in the context of the liabilities, contingent liabilities or the value transferred rights.
While the test of materiality must, therefore, be applied in each case, proper consideration should be given to asset or liability value, turnover & profit contribution in making this determination;
Compulsory valuations are recommended where persons in management or the promoters become shareholders of 90% or more of the issued share capital of the company & seek to negotiate the exit of the minority shareholders, provided there is significant minority interest in such a situation. The Expert Group is of a view that under the following circumstances, the valuation opinion may not be described as the Company Registration activity requiring disclosure to the shareholders.
