Hoe “High-Tech” bedrijven waarderen?


Recent behandelde McKinsey dit salliant onderwerp, gebaseerd op hun boek “Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies“.

Wat leren wij hieruit?

High-Tech bedrijven worden gekenmerkt door:

  • fast growth and high uncertainty,
  • widely varying valuations.

Hoe zulke fast growers waarderen?

  • Well-established general valuation principles work just fine,
  • Discounted-cash-flow valuations still apply (core principles of economics and finance),
  • Alternatives, such as price- to-earnings or value-to-sales multiples, are of little use,
  • All these so-called alternatives provide little insight into what drives valuation.

Hoe begin je aan een high-tech waardering?

  • begin by examining the expected long- term development of the company’s markets—and then work backward,
  • focus on the potential size of the market and the company’s market share as well as the level of return on capital the company might be able to earn,
  • always value the company under different probability-weighted scenarios of how the market might develop under different conditions.

A “HOW-TO” VALUATION GUIDE?

  1. Start from the future (Back to the Future!).
  2. Size the market.
  3. Estimate operating margin, capital intensity, and return on invested capital.
  4. Work backward to current performance.
  5. Develop weighted scenarios.

Au travail!
