Before selling a business, know your valueValuation
Before you are ready to sell your business, we’ll answer your number one question, ‘what is my business worth?’. To achieve an answer, our evaluation professionals will ask you a lot of meaningful questions and analyze your business. They’ll recast your financials and analyze your intangible assets, presenting them in a way that unlocks hidden value. They will forecast the future under a buyer's ownership to position you to decide how to proceed. By the end of the process, you’ll have a clear understanding of what your business is worth – and a figure that helps you decide how to proceed with selling your company.

For many of our clients, this will mean holding off before selling their business. But it’s not the end of our service. Every single client is given our value enhancement planning tool (which is customized for their business), the Roadmap to Enhancing Value. By identifying key areas in which your business can improve its value, we can drive your company forward and prepare it for the day you’re ready to sell your business. Both the Roadmap for Enhancing Value and our Evaluation documents include two free updates, guaranteeing our advice remains relevant as your company goes to market.
