'Developed by two professors from leading US business schools, uValue is a corporate valuation app. Originally created for the iPad, the fully functional version of uValue is now available for the iPhone. The app helps you value businesses using conceptually rigorous, yet practical and widely-used tools. You can value firms using the ‘weighted average cost of capital’ (WACC, or 'cost of capital') approach, the ‘adjusted present value’ (APV) approach, the ‘dividend growth model’ (DGM), or real option valuation (ROV) techniques. The app also includes a set of calculators to value bonds, annuities and perpetuities, as well as calculate cost of capital, forecast exchange rates, lever/unlever betas, and so forth.
It was jointly created by Professor Aswath Damodaran at the Stern School of Business and Professor Anant Sundaram at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, two academics with extensive teaching, advising, consulting, and research experience on business valuation.
The app is free. We want anyone who is keen to do a good valuation, anywhere, to have access to self-contained, fully-functional tools to do so. Time and again, we see that poor investment decisions start with poor valuations. Consequently, uValue is fundamentally educational in its intent — it comes with three important features: pop-up boxes that define and explain every input or concept, a uValue Companion that is a mini-textbook on valuation, and links to a data set that give you industry data benchmarks.
uValue presumes basic familiarity with financial statements. With the WACC and the APV models, you can also choose between 'Detailed' or 'Simple' versions. You do have to agree to a disclaimer within the app before you can use it.'
