“Corporate Mortality” and Valuation

Wednesday, August 02, 2017

We have often puzzled over business valuation methodologies that assume a company’s perpetual life. We recently read for the first time about the expert questioning of this assumption within the context of a discounted cash flow analysis. Business immortality is unrealistic and maturing companies also tend to experience slowing growth.

It appears that the data is not yet clear on these phenomena, which may explain why the valuation community has not yet embraced this consciousness. But, pursuit and application of this knowledge seems material to not overstating business values, while reflecting reality more closely.

We look forward to reading further about positive developments on the important issue.
