Project description

We want student(s) to identify the right framework of valuation models for our internal use. Currently, valuations are centered around yearly impairment tests of goodwill/invested capital, business cases for technological development projects and valuation of external investment opportunities (M&A).

We would like the following points to be assessed:
• Analyze literature about valuation models applicable to technology- intensive Companies;
• Analyze Welltec’s current investments in new technological developments focusing on financial part;
• Prepare a business case for new technological investments;
• Determine valuation models in use at other Companies similar to Welltec (competitor analysis);
• Compare Welltecs' valuation methodology within an industry;
• Define possible valuation framework for internal use on a continuous basis.

Our expected deliverable is a report evaluating our current status with regard to the use of valuation models and how we could improve it. Also, we would like to receive a running model for technological valuation based on business case analysis. The results should be presented in a form of presentation to our key stakeholders.
