How Much Is Your Business Worth?

There are many reasons why you as a business owner may need to know the value of your business. For example:

  • You may want to have your business appraised for the purpose of selling it.
  • You may want to offer an attractive package to a potential partner, or you may want to buy the ownership shares from an existing partner.
  • As a buyer, you may be interested in obtaining a fair, unbiased opinion on what a potential acquisition is worth.
  • You may need to resolve a legal dispute involving your business.
  • A valuation may be necessary for succession and estate planning purposes, or for separating marital assets in a divorce proceeding.
There are several other reasons why you might need to know what the value of your business is (some are discussed here); however, whatever the reason, you can be assured that we are capable of assisting with this critical piece of information. We will prepare a valuation that is objective, unbiased, fair, and above all, highly customized to reflect the value of your specific business.

Regardless of the type of business that you need to be appraised, we will create an accurate assessment of the value of your business. Our valuation engagements all have the following attributes:
  • All of your available financial information will be closely examined, and re-cast as necessary to place into context any outlying or uncommon trends.
  • The operations of your company will be analyzed very closely, so as to obtain an accurate assessment of the unique way that you conduct business.
  • The most widely used business valuation techniques will be applied, while ensuring that the value of your business is calculated using the methodology most appropriate for your particular industry, business type, and stage in the business life cycle.
  • All of the factors that comprise your operation and make it unique will factor into the determination of your business value.
  • You will be presented with a professional document that offers an educated opinion as to what your business is worth, along with a detailed analysis and the resultant justification.

The valuations that we provide are always performed to the standards of the industry, as expressed in IRS Ruling 59-60, as well as the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

In addition, when the individual valuation engagement calls for a dispute regarding the value of a business to be settled in a courtroom, company CEO and lead valuation specialist Brian Walters has experience in multiple court cases testifying as an expert witness on behalf of the client/s that he represents.
