Hello, I have to value a company as of September 2008. The company reported that it went through a big restructuring in 2008 in its half-year report.

    Thank you. For clarification, do you mean I should basically use an APV method? My plan was to use the WACC. Can I do it like this? Value of Company = Value without restructuring using WACC + tax benefit of restructuring We were always told not to mix both methods. Or the way I would prefer it: let cashflows be the same as without restructuring and just adjust the WACC for the first three periods by lowering the tax rate.
