A business valuation is part of every owner’s pre-due diligence process. It tells the owner what their company is worth and identifies any broken business drivers or risk factors. Ideally, this discovery is done years before a transaction. For the business owner, the benefit of the early valuation is they get a reality check into their biggest potential asset, their business.

Top 10 reasons for a business valuation before a sale:

  1. Better understand Your Business and its growth potential

  2. Know the value of your largest asset so you can develop a plan for Retirement

  3. Ensure the business and your family are Properly Protected

  4. Use the Valuation to understand which drivers will help you accelerate the value quickest

  5. Create a Succession Plan

  6. Pay the right amount when you Buy a business or know its value on a sale

  7. Create Buy/Sell Agreements with business partners

  8. Explore Funding Opportunities

  9. Establish a Trust or create an Estate Plan – Prepare for a freeze

  10. Understand where you stack up relative to your industry peers
