Accurate Business Valuations
An accurate business valuation is a crucial piece of business intelligence. It is vital that a business owner understands the fair market value of his business for many different situations. Situations calling for an accurate valuation include; business transactions (buying and selling), estate planning, family transitions, longer-term exit strategy planning, buy/sell agreements, partnership disputes, lawsuits and divorces. An accurate valuation can only be completed by a professional who understands the industry of the business being valued.
An inaccurate valuation will result in thousands, if not millions of dollars lost by the business owner and his family. As challenging as it is to operate a profitable family business today, why risk millions of dollars when the situation calls for an accurate business valuation?
Benchmark Valuation – a Benchmark Valuation produces an accurate range of fair market value for your business at a given point of time and takes into consideration your business’s adjusted historical earnings, relevant risk factors specific to your business, company debt and working capital existing as of the valuation date. A Benchmark Valuation is designed to provide the business owner with a very accurate and supportable range of value. Benchmark Valuations have been used to establish the sale prices on hundreds of businesses that ultimately closed with third party buyers as well as family members.
Calculated Business Appraisal – not all situations call for a Benchmark Valuation. Service contracting businesses producing less than $1.5M a year can rely upon a Calculated Business Appraisal that is less intrusive, but delivers an accurate range of value to the business owner. A Calculated Business Appraisal is the right choice for smaller businesses expecting the accuracy without the added cost and time of a Benchmark Valuation. Similar to Benchmark Valuation, Calculated Business Appraisals have been used to establish sales prices for many different types of buyers including family members and employees.
