The Global Corporate Advisor – January 2015

Global Corporate Advisor
Welcome to the January issue of the Global Corporate Advisor. Over the past few years, many studies performed on listed companies have shown that goodwill represents an important part of total assets. We examine various methodologies of establishing the asset value of goodwill. From Dubai and Venezuela, we examine newer approaches to valuation in light of changing investment and consumption cycles. Across the world, some of the long followed principles of the value paradigm need to be revisited, thus impacting business valuations. Also in this issue, we provide a mergers and acquisitions update form Turkey, where the outlook is pretty good.
