of Goldsun Packaging Joint Stock Company, providing a reference for both
the company and strategic investors in price decision.
Different popular valuation models will be discussed to select the most
appropriate model, according to the author’s view. Its is also necessary to
understand the company’s economic and industry context as well as the
management’s strategic responses to come to the valuation of the business.
For that purpose, the thesis is structured in three parts as following.
Chapter 1: Company Valuation – A Literature Review
The first chapter gives a general view about the current valuation
models with focus on the most common used ones. 2 main valuation models
including discounted cash flow valuation (DDM, FCF, residual Income) and
market-based multiples (P/E, P/B, P/S, P/CF, EV/EBITDA), which are
popular in most of the industries are discussed.
