Corporate Financial Analysis

Our financial analysis experts help fund managers to make future business decisions or review historical trends for past successes (relying on these ones to build the future) and assist investors to choose or select the best possible investment opportunities. This is done through the synthesis of our customers financial numbers and data (income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement) through horizontal or vertical analysis. We conduct whether fundamental analysis – using ratios and financial statement data to determine the intrinsic value of security or technical analysis – assuming a security’s value is already determined by its price, and it focuses instead on trends in value over time.

Investment Financial Analysis

SFDS conducts analysis for investment purposes using whether a top-down or bottom-up investment approach. In a top-down approach, SFDS first looks for macroeconomic opportunities such as high-performing sectors and then drills down to find the best companies within that sector. We further analyze the stocks of specific companies and their fundamentals.  In a bottom-approach, SFDS first looks at a specific company and conducts a similar ratio analysis to the ones used in Corporate Financial Analysis (above), looking at past performance and expected future performance as investment indicators. In Bottom-up investment, we focus for our customers in microeconomic factors (company’s overall financial health, analysis of financial statements,…)

We use different valuation methodologies, yielding different results and used in different situations. In this process of valuation, SFDS identifies its value-generating units and formulate strategies for growth. IPO, portfolio management and tax assessment are also areas where we assist you as we are aware that these ones are areas that involve a lot of corporate valuation.

Part of our mission is to help our customers to figure out and understand the fundamentals and potential impacts of building a successful M&A tax planning (which structure is more favorable for you as a company and as an individual).

Post M&A integration 

This aspect is part of the M&A game-plan. Once your Company whether has merged with or acquired another one, the question is what do we do now? This is what we do call the integration part.

We assist our customers to look and analyze deeper not only the financial implications of combining organizations but also the structural, cultural and social implications of M&A.
