The EquityMaven website allows companies to understand their business better with the assistance of the customised valuation calculator that shares a highly detailed, investment banking-style report.

“If you need to get a valuation, this tool gives you that first view, with strong analytics, that could help you kickstart a negotiation process. It also enables clients to evaluate their performance relative to their peers,” says Rule.

“Finally, they can make corrections to underperforming KPIs, which should result in increased valuations. The tool provides a comprehensive report based on both an income and market approach,” he concludes.
