Our Business Valuations Process

Business valuations are more than just running the numbers - it is an evidenced-based merger of analysis and discovery that follows a clearly defined business valuations process.

We assess the operations and strategy of the business in relation to the expected financial outcomes of the future and the industry and market conditions.  We use the evidence we gather on past performance and trends to support our expectations of the future.

We follow a five stage business valuations process that ensures we deal with all business valuations consistently, with standard practices and best practice.

How Do Business Valuations Help Me Sell A Business?

There are many ways you can sell a business - and there are different types of buyers.  Some buyers (like someone "off the street") will only ever pay market value.  Other buyers may pay a premium to market value. 

Business valuations have the detail that tell you what type of buyer will pay what level of premium.

In addition, when you sell your business, business valuations will indicate how big or small the buyer can be.  If the business is worth $4m then it won't just be any Tom, Dick or Harry off the street buying it.  Whereas a business only worth $1.2m may be purchased by a wider pool of potential buyers.

Finally, business valuations usually uncover things you may not have known, which helps when you sell your business and try to match it to the right pool of buyers.
