Best value broker
We sometimes sell, or assist in the sale, of businesses that we value. Since we do most of the due diligence during our valuation, our brokering fees are low (8-10%), we do not require a minimum amount, and do not have restrictive stipulations that you see with most brokers. We provide full confidentiality of your business through the sale process. We offer your business for sale via nationwide databases. We research and personally contact prospective buyers.
Professional and certified
We use the latest databases and the best technology to perform valuations. Our valuations are certified, which means they can be used in litigation, bank financing, IRS issues, etc. We offer accurate and objective business valuations. Many companies you find on the internet say they are certified, when they are not.
When done with your valuation, we provide you a “bank package”. It includes the valuation report and all relevant documentation. You can take this “bank package” to a bank to obtain financing. We help answer any questions the bank has, all free of charge. We can direct you to bank financing.
We rebuild your accounting books as needed. This is in addition to providing normalizing adjustments to the financial statements to provide an accurate valuation. Without accurate books, a valuation is not accurate.
Accurate market values
We pay for and use the most accurate sources available for determining the market value of your business. We tap into Census bureau statistics, the most accurate and complete source of business transactions. We can drill down to local market value.
We include a 40-page up-to-date industry report in all our valuations. The professional report helps us understand your industry and the risks involved, so we can make accurate calculations of risk and benefits. The report gives you detailed insight into your industry trends. It helps you compare your company to other companies.
Our valuation report is a 90-page bound book, with an attractive glossy cover. We also provide you an electronic version of the book. See our sample report here: [link to sample report]
