How much is your business worth? What a willing buyer and a willing seller agree to. So how do you determine an accurate business valuation?
Our valuation services include fundamentally sound financial, economic and market driven approaches to accurately establish achievable value expectations. Our Valuation & Qualification Analysis (VQA) is a meticulous yet comprehensive evaluation report custom prepared for private and public companies alike. The VQA identifies company specific value enhancing factors, industry wide benchmarks and trends, and financial and economic perspectives on valuation and risk considerations. This mission-critical analysis is purpose built to identify financial and capitalization opportunities, in addition to incorporating the inherent characteristics of the many sources of financing alternatives into the future growth outlook.
Our evaluation begins with a thorough examination of your company’s operations, management and organization structure, financial history, market position and future financial outlook. The core objective of the report is to inform management and shareholders as to the Company’s true market value, relative to comparable investment opportunities, by highlighting the potential return on investment given industry specific valuation parameters and risk tolerance. We identify & provide support for the true value of the investment opportunity by pulling together the following components:
- Detailed business description
- Business & industry analysis
- Historic & future financial analysis
- Valuation analysis
- Recommendations & strategy
Preparing management for key growth phases, while identifying what the Company is qualified to achieve, is integral to establishing realistic goals, making informed decisions and achieving value enhancing benchmarks. Our commitment to accuracy, shareholder support and value appreciation are unparalleled in the middle market.
