Valuation

An independent assessment of your business

Know and be comfortable with your bottom-line negotiation position

Develop a marketing strategy for selling your business

The value of a business hinges on how much profit a buyer can make from it balanced by the risks involved. Past profitability and asset values are only the starting points, it is often intangible factors such as management, business relationships and client base that provide the key value. The type of buyer, the synergies with their own business and their business development plan will also determine the particular value of acquisition to them.

If you are selling, you will need to know and be comfortable with your bottom-line deal value and the asking price at which we will market your business. Because your business will represent different values to different buyers, we will review with you the target market and recommend the most appropriate marketing strategy.
