Business owners often have a significant amount of their net worth tied to their own businesses. When evaluating strategic options, a business valuation is often a good place to start. Our expertise in valuation allows us to advise clients on valuation issues in connection with the sale of companies and informs our advice on the process by which they are sold. When selling an entire company, we advise clients to look for synergistic and industry buyers who can realize the greatest benefits from the acquisition, and thus pay the highest price for the company.
A business’s value is based on the cash flow expected to be available to the owners after paying for all expenses of running the business. We normally utilize three standard methods to value every business.
Buyers will pay no more for a property than it would cost to acquire a substitute property with the same utility.
Buyers only care about future cash flows of the business.
Buyers pay value of individual assets (company worth more dead than alive).
