Valuation in International Arbitration
The Middle Eastern and African Arbitration Review 2016
It can be necessary for tribunals in international arbitration to assess the market value of a business when making an award of damages. Often, the business in question has characteristics that can make that assessment difficult. For example, it might have a limited track record of financial performance, operate in an uncertain environment or lack comparable companies to benchmark against.
In this article, Noel Matthews and Andrew Wynn consider some of those challenges, and explain how experts can seek to reduce the uncertainty that they can present in a valuation.
