For Business Buyers and Business Sellers
Just as there are many reasons to value a business, there are many ways to analyze a company’s true value to arrive at an accurate understanding of the business worth. Whether you are looking to buy a business or sell a business it is vital that the valuation methods used to analyze the worth of the business or company produce an accurate measure of the company’s real economic value. For the buyer, this will help to make sure he does not overpay for the company. For the seller, this will help him to make sure he does not undervalue his business and receive less than it is truly worth.
We help business buyers to make sound business purchase decisions because we often uncover investment values that are not easily seen. When our clients who are buying a business use our services they may find a business which has economic potential the seller has not exploited.
We help business sellers prove their business is a going concern and has ongoing value. Business sellers should sell a company at the fair market value at a minimum. Proving the value of your company can mean a higher selling price resulting in higher revenue and profit. When a seller asks how much is my business worth we provide answers that will stand up to scrutiny.
No matter what reason a business is being sold we make sure that our clients have the best and most accurate business valuation analysis possible.
Our valuation methods and results will stand up in any venue requiring an opinion of value.
