Tangible Assets

In Q2 2011, the GoIndustry DoveBid Valuations Team appraised the value of tangible assets for accounting purposes at over 1,100 various public buildings throughout the United Kingdom, primarily back office and front-of-house facilities.

Using a sampling methodology, the GoIndustry DoveBid team of seven valuation specialists visited 81 locations over a five week period. Over 130,000 individual items were inspected, categorised and graded according to condition.

Data provided by the Company was compared with our findings to benchmark it’s accuracy and a range of data points for each site were analysed to identify patterns of asset utility, lifecycle and economic life, current cost and future value, according to the data available,  with the unvisited sites being categorised accordingly.

Following a final review of the assets and the appropriate accounting standard, FRS15, we used the most appropriate methodology for arriving at the Value of the Plant & Equipment to the Business of the asset portfolio. We reported an overall value in excess of £60m.

A Middle Eastern Production

GoIndustry DoveBid were commissioned to produce a valuation of a major Middle East based production studio and television channel on the basis of Fair Market Value – Installed to enable to the client to assess an offer to purchase the company assets.

The facility included multiple television studios, offices, outside broadcast and satellite vehicles.  The assets were all current technology and from tier 1 manufacturers, and included cameras & lenses; lighting; video & audio editing and post production; graphics; ingest and playout; routing, switching and distribution; transmission; archiving; outside broadcast.

Although there is a ready market in the Middle East, there is limited evidence of sales of similar facilities on the open market - the cost approach was therefore used to value the facility, with adjustments for changes in the costs of the assets and removal of any costs irrelevant to the value (e.g. training, expired software licenses and support contracts).

The valuation was completed on time and to the satisfaction of the client – we were also able to complete additional work requested by the client at short notice in order to facilitate the sales process.
