RESUMEN En numerosas ocasiones las metodologías de valoración usualmente empleadas presentan dificultades en su aplicación a la valoración de empresas, bien porque el valorador no dispone de suficientes datos para utilizar los métodos comparativos tradicionales, bien por la dificultad de estimar los flujos de caja futuros con objetividad. Ante esta problemática, el presente trabajo propone una alternativa que combina el método multicriterio CRITIC con el Ratio de Valoración de las Normas Internacionales de Valuación. La nueva metodología se inserta dentro de los métodos comparativos o de enfoque de mercado y requiere únicamente disponer de un número reducido de empresas comparables. En este trabajo se ha aplicado a la valoración de una caja de ahorros. La valoración de este tipo de instituciones financieras, por la situación actual del sector, es un cometido de gran interés y constituye además un ejemplo muy ilustrativo para mostrar las fortalezas de la metodología propuesta. In several occasions the traditional valuation methodologies present difficulties in their application to the companies’ valuation, either due to valuator’s lack of enough data to use in the traditional comparative methods, or due to the difficulty when estimating the future cash-flows with objectivity. In this situation, the present study suggests an alternative which combines the CRITIC multicriteria methodology with the Valuation Ratio of the International Standards of Valuation. The new methodology is included in the comparative or market approach methods and it only requires having at its disposal a small number of comparable companies. In this work this methodology is applied to get the value of a savings bank. The valuation of this kind of financial institutions, due to the current situation of the sector, implies a task of great interest and it also constitutes a very illustrative example to show the strengths of the proposed methodology.
