Corporate Finance Advisory
We solve complex tasks in valuation, financial modeling and economic consulting. Our principal strength is serving as an independent arbiter to identify a balance of interests between different market players. This function is especially important while planning M&A transactions.
We have comprehensive experience cooperating successfully with a wide array of companies, agreeing and defending our deliverables at any level – from auditors to government bodies. We are among the few advisors in Azerbaijan enjoying practical knowledge and in-depth understanding of the CIS markets. Moreover, the widespread Deloitte network allows us to draw on international experience in offering solutions.
In addition to the generally accepted valuation techniques, we have developed our own well-balanced forecasting toolkit, which enables us to make precise projections of both external (macroeconomic and sector) factors and the regulator's position on a wide range of issues.
Our team has unmatched experience in key industries of the Azerbaijani economy -- oil and gas, energy, telecommunications, banks, and transportation. Each product we deliver also contains deep analysis of industry prospects and its development opportunities, including case-specific scenarios. Our focus is centered around the following services:
• Valuation of shares, businesses, and tangible/intangible assets (under federal and international valuation standards);
• Purchase price allocation (PPA).
Our experience in financial modeling ranges from typical assignments in dynamic calculation of a company’s capitalization and measurement of an investment project’s feasibility to development of scale models of specific markets and sectors of the Azerbaijani, Russian, European and even global economies. We are leaders on the financial modeling market and can handle any task you require.
Economic consulting is one of our new services and is based on our deep-rooted industry experience. Our microeconomic tools and statistical analysis techniques allow us to propose the most efficient solutions regardless of the complexity of the issue – from strategic topics to agreeing results with regulators.
Moreover, we are pioneers in technical audit and cost-efficiency analysis of major investment projects of the Azerbaijani monopolies. Our core services in Economic Consulting include:
• Cost efficiency analysis of investment projects;
• Feasibility study of investment projects;
• Applied business solutions (econometrics, modeling of optimal strategy given existing risks)
Today’s macroeconomic climate has fully neutralized earlier proven approaches to transaction services and the focus on the “almighty” multiples coming out of a business. Right from its inception our team has relied exclusively on case-by-case analysis based on deep understanding of a client’s interests/motives, the specifics of a particular business, and analysis of actually existing synergies (and not purely theoretical) as well as the future of a company. Our specialists’ unique sector backgrounds – which allow them to quickly delve into the substance of deal – and Deloitte’s worldwide network are the real key to locating investors, even in the most remote areas of the globe.
