Corporate valuations of businesses

Statutory requirements trigger a need to perform a valuation in certain circumstances, for example:

  • Redemption of shares held by a shareholder in a private limited company
  • Termination of status as a partner within a business partnership
  • Death of a co-shareholder and compensation to the heirs
  • Squeeze outs
  • Merger of publicly traded companies
  • Conclusion of a profit transfer agreement

As the rights of the shareholders are encroached upon, or are subject to change, the shareholders or their successors in interest have a right to compensation. Germany’s Basic Law (Grundgesetz) and corporate laws provide for severance compensation based on market value. This is determined by means of a company valuation. For cases involving severance payments, company value must be computed as objective company value.
