Principles of valuation of a chemical company

The valuation of a chemical company is a very important question that every chemical company owner might be interested in. There is the technical part as well as the art of a business valuation. There are a lot of factors that come into consideration during the valuation of a chemical company.

There are multiple valuation methods currently used in the M&A market. The DCF method (discounted cash-flow method) is sometimes used. More often, the way to value a company is to take industry multiples (mostly EBITDA) and use these on the company’s financials to come up with an estimated valuation. This is the most common method.
