Business Valuations

Selling a Business
Before putting your business on the market, isn’t it worth finding out what it’s really worth?

Buying a Business
Before you invest heavily in a new business, isn’t it worth protecting your investments by finding out what it is really worth?

A valuation systematically examines any business, revealing the fair market value to both buyers and sellers. As a result, you’ll be able to…

Sell with Confidence

If you are looking to sell your business, getting the maximum dollar amount involves three things:

  • A defensible price;
  • Complete information about the price; and
  • Credibility

We have completed over 2,000 Business Valuations. Odds are that we have valued at least one business in your sector.

If the business is profitable it will likely have substantial intangible value, which is included in our Business Valuations.

Most importantly, potential buyers expect validated proof supporting your asking price. Equipping yourself with a business valuation from a qualified business validation expert helps you get the best possible price.

Acquire with Confidence

If your goal is to acquire a business, you may find it difficult or (even impossible) to find complete understandable information to make a confident and smart buying decision.

It’s frustrating – as well as risky and expensive – to rely on the seller’s broker for their valuation. When buying a business, a valuation provides you with a reliable basis for developing your offer. This ensures peace of mind and confidence that you are making the smart buying decision.

This is simply no substitute for a qualified and un-biased third-party opinion on fair-market value. As business brokers, we specialize in providing surprisingly affordable, quality business valuations that help small to medium-sized businesses deal with deal with confidence.

Benefits of our Business Valuations

If Selling – Get the Best Price for your Business

Protect yourself by having our certified business staff conduct a evaluation first. With a business valuation, you will be armed with the knowledge and documents you need to get the best price for your business.

In fact, a qualified business valuation will help you to re-cast your financial statements to reflect the true net operating income of your business, which is the basis for your value. We will work with you to make sure we have considered everything that will add to the value of your business to get you the best price.

If Buying – Get the Best Value For Your Dollar

Avoid costly mistakes that you may regret later. If you pay substantially more that it’s worth, you will severely limit your ability to sell and recover your investment. Our valuations are based on actual market transactions for similar businesses. You can decide on whether to offer a premium price, or not.

A Convenient Time Saver

Save time, money, and wasted effort by getting the business valued correctly.
