BUSINESS VALUATION PROCESS


Understanding the fair market value should be as important to an owner as operating the business. It is critical to convert the "Book Value" of a business to its appropriate "Economic Value" in order to determine its fair market value. A properly prepared comprehensive third party valuation will define the fair market value of a business and enhance the overall perception of the business to the potential buyer. This is key to obtaining the best possible price and terms for a business. Equity, Ltd.'s resources include independent third party valuation services. We firmly believe that professionally prepared business packaging consistently produces higher prices, better terms and faster closings.

In addition to determining fair market value and properly positioning a business to a prospective buyer valuations can serve many purposes including;

  1. A base value for Buy-Sell Agreement and Partnerships
  2. A benchmark value for overall business planning
  3. Pre-qualify a business for a preferred SBA loan
  4. Strengthen and enhance banking relationships
  5. Estate, Trust and Inheritance Tax planning
  6. Maximize vendor and supplier terms
  7. Report to investors in a private firm
  8. Plan for a merger or stock offering
