Düsseldorf, March 13, 2019: The fifth edition of the study on German valuation practice in squeeze-outs, mergers and other legal measures according to German law has been complemented by reports with valuation dates in 2018 and analyses the development of valuation practice since 2010.

The new I-ADVISE study can serve as a reference point for the most important parameters of valuations and offers an overview of solutions to a multitude of valuation questions by valuation professionals. “The new tendency to derive the terminal value from average margin estimates or long term projections by the valuator has a high potential value impact.”, explains Dr. Jochen Beumer, Head of Valuation Services of I-ADVISE AG.
