Company valuation excel for Venture·Growth·Mature·Deficit Firm


Introduction of the product and the lectures


It is important to learn the discounted cash flow method and the relative valuation. However, it is more important to know “which method you choose” and “how you adjust each method” depending on the company state.


This product includes the company valuation excel templates and PDF files that the author of “Corporate valuation and investment analysis practice (2021, JCinus)” made. He chose either the market approach or the discounted cash flow excel, one or both and modified it according to the state of case companies; venture, growth, maturity, and deficit. This company valuation excel also provides 25~35 minute lecture videos for each topic.


Composition of the company valuation excel

  1. Four corporate valuation excel templates (one or both of market approach and discounted cash flow excel for venture firm, growth stock, mature company, lossmaker)
  2. Four explanatory PDF materials explaining each company characteristics, appropriate valuation methods, and modelling adjustments by company type
  3. Four lecture videos (total 115 minutes, average 29 minutes per episode)



Introduction to the Market Approach and Discounted Cash flow Excel Templates



Depending on the company state, the DCF model may be more suitable for it, or the relative valuation method, or both. It is also necessary to adjust the components of each model as needed.


According to their sales growth rate, companies are classified into four types in this product: venture firms, growth stocks, mature companies, and lossmakers. It selected the most suitable valuation methods for each company type among the venture capital valuation methods, the DCF model, and the relative valuation method. And it took the following global companies in the US and UK as examples in the Excel files.


  • Venture firm valuation: Darktrace (unicorn company), UK AI cybersecurity company
  • Growth stock valuation: Zynga, US social game developer
  • Mature company valuation: AstraZeneca, UK global pharmaceutical company
