Business valuations involve steps that are taken to determine how much your business is worth. Effective valuation will help executives and business stakeholders to negotiate a price when selling a business. These valuation procedures can also be utilized to handle resolutions of disputes related to different areas of litigation, taxation, assets, and purchases.

Determining Business Value
Businesses have different reasons for determining their value. Oftentimes, you may find that you must sell your business when faced with life challenges like marital struggles, poor health, or family issues. If you plan on selling your business, you may be faced with the task of refinancing your debt or equity for company expansion or because of problems with cash flow. Financers or investors who potentially see value in purchasing your business will be better prospects to conduct business with if they are impressed with your business worth. If you choose to select additional shareholders, you will need to determine the value of your shares. Our valuation team is glad to assist you with a business sale. We will ensure that you receive an attractive and fair offer from the purchaser.
There are some tried and true methods for business valuations that we use with our clients. One of which is an asset-based approach. We will determine the total of your entire investment portfolio, and execute this valuation with either liquidation or going concern.
An earning value approach is another method of valuation. This involves estimating your company’s future valuation. Using this approach when valuing your company’s past earnings record, then normalizing it and multiplying these cash values by a capitalization factor (the estimate of what the expected rate of return would be for a future purchaser’s investment, along with risk management analysis of earnings).
We incorporate the discounted future earnings method into our valuation strategies as well, along with a market value approach, which compares your business value to those that have sold within a recent period. This is the most common business valuation method our clients use, however we plan our valuations by incorporating each method to determine the most accurate business value.
