•  Why Should A Business Owner Consider An Independent Business Valuation?

Help identify the key value drivers, major strengths, and more importantly, the major weaknesses of a company allowing the owner to solve both obvious and hidden problems prior to the selling process.

Determining a reasonable selling price. Many owners rely on general rules of thumb, casual advice from friends, or other similarly unreliable sources. Values determined by general multiples or rules of thumb may be too high or too low. Unless the business owner goes through the valuation process, he/she will not know if the owner's expectations of value is too high, it will prolong the selling process until a price concession is made. If the price is too low, money is left on the table.

Fully understanding the value of the business will assist during negotiations. In this market, one can expect buyers to be sophisticated and experienced. They will conduct a rigorous analysis of the company even if the seller has not. They will look at those factors and value drivers that the owner and his advisors should consider in valuing the company, and they will use that information against the seller in the negotiations if allowed.
