Equity Valuation

When we think about knowing the true value of an asset, we must clearly and objectively deal with it.

The equity valuations define the course as follows, the decision making when placing an asset in some transaction involving a mortgage guarantee, financing, giving in payment, etc.

When we value an asset, we have a responsibility to attribute the fair value, the Real value, and for this, a number of factors give us the conviction to reach the final result, that is, the correct value of the asset.

The valuation engineering has as premise the elaboration of technical reports of valuation, being responsible for the attribution of the values to be sought. It is up to the Engineer and/or Architect, the formation of these numbers through the formatting of the valuation following the guidelines recommended by the Brazilian Valuation Standard, NBR 14653.

Ethically speaking, the appraiser should not transact the assets valuated, or have any direct or indirect interest in that real estate or personal property, thus guarding against any tendency to manipulate the results.

When you are valuating your asset, think carefully. Hire a specialized company, do not accept unsubstantiated opinions or from professionals not qualified for this purpose. Take good care of your equity.

If the adoption of the present value adjustment is applicable only to contracted cash flows or whether, perhaps, it would also be applied to estimated or expected cash flows;

In situations which the adoption of the adjustment to present value of assets and liabilities is required, if at the time of the initial recording of assets and liabilities, if in the change of the valuation basis of assets and liabilities, or if at both times;

If non-contractual liabilities, such as those arising from non-formalized or legal obligations, are reached by the present value adjustment;

What is the appropriate discount rate for an asset or liability and what care is needed to avoid distortions of computation and bias;

What is the recommended discount (interest) allocation method;

If the present value adjustment should be effective net of tax effects.
