How is a pharmacy valuation carried out?
The Gesvalt report uses all potential company information valuing the goodwill by means of an estimation of revenue and the inclusion of associated risks. This model looks at variables such as location, key clients (health centres, nursing homes, hospitals, day centres, etc.) opening times, how often the pharmacy is on call, personnel employed, proximity to other pharmacies.
It also takes into account intangible assets, that determine the valuation. We are referring here to the aspects that are not physically seen, but can play a part in economic performance.
Intangibles such as type of clientele, experience the employees have, customer loyalty, relation with suppliers, brand value, a lot of times these are more relevant than tangible assets.
