Steel Company Valuation Service

Determination of Business Value


Valuation work is used to support clients who wish either to purchase or sell a business or as a part of insurance or due diligence investigations.

The MCI valuation services team has a great deal of specialist experience, particularly in the valuation of steel assets, and draws on the wider range of expertise within the organisation. Consideration is given to:

  • The scope of the business or assets to be valued
  • The valuation methodology to be adopted (discounted cash flow - DCF, asset or earnings-based valuations)
  • Client-specific assumptions - for example is a fire sale involved?
  • The location, age, condition and completeness of the relevant assets
  • A general assessment of the technology and its appropriateness for the intended use
  • Maintenance records, where available.

Where applicable, adjustments are made for:

  • Costs to complete works
  • Renovation and restart costs
  • Relocation costs.

Asset valuation assignments are typically conducted in accordance with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Valuation Standards. The MCI process for conducting valuations consolidates information gathered from technical records and site visits as well as a proprietary 'in-house' database to derive a baseline value of the assets under consideration. Adjustments are then made taking into account the age and condition of the equipment.

Depending on the nature of the assignment, the scope of work may be expanded to include a review (from a technical viewpoint) of:

  • Raw materials supply agreements
  • Market off-take agreements
  • Equipment supply and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts
  • Utility supply contracts
  • Operation and management contracts
  • Human resources issues.

Reports follow a structured format and typically include an introduction to the assignment and the valuation approach to be adopted, a description of the assets, details of the assumptions made, value calculations and a valuation statement. Reports are issued either as a stand-alone technical document or as part of a portfolio together with legal, commercial and financial documents.
