Valuation On Different Stages Of The Deal

Erik Levy, Group Head Corporate Development and M&A at DMGT, describes the stages of valuation on different phases of the deal. 

Valuations may vary depending on the deal stage. In the beginning when you have limited access to data, you can only do a high level valuation based on your hypothesis. But as you progress deeper into the deal, you will get a more detailed valuation model based on diligence.
