What is My Business Worth?
A true test of accuracy and validity of any valuation is the price at which a company would willingly change hands in the marketplace. The valuation of a privately owned company is both science and art. Since no two companies are exactly alike even within the same industry, trade, or service, there is no one formula or method that is all inclusive. We use a comprehensive, multi-method approach that considers relevant factors that are unique to a particular company including: company history and longevity, future economic outlook, tangible asset value, intangible asset value and industry ratios. Also considered are factors such as historical net cash flow, probability of continued profitability, risk competition, technology changes, ownership transition training, owner non-compete and consulting agreements, as well as working capital requirements.
There are many reasons to value a company. Whether it is for an anticipated acquisition or divesture, a partnership buy-sell agreement, stockholder concerns, martial dissolution, or estate planning, a professional valuation makes a world of difference. Since there are many reasons to value a company, there are many different levels of valuation services. From a simple target value for selling your company to a complex IRS-rated valuation, we can handle the assignment internally or by working with independent third parties.
