Valuing a business is more than just calculating a number. Having worked as a CFO provides me with a unique perspective. When I recommend a business owner invest $35 million in an acquisition, I stay with it to make sure it is successful.

I identify your needs to get you moving in the right direction. To measure value, I prepare a business valuation for your specific purpose. To grow value, I analyze your current situation, prepare a plan of action, and execute that plan . I have done this for companies ranging from $500,000 to $25 million in revenue.

Valuing your business is complicated

Several elements must be considered, including a combination of internal and external factors such as cash flow, net assets, debt, A/R aging, Inventory obsolescence, unrecorded liabilities, capital expenditures, location, demographics, management, compensation plans, risk, growth rates, discount rates, national/regional/local economy, pricing, terms, competition, etc.

Many people use broad guidelines to value a business such as industry “rules of thumb,” multiples of revenue, multiples of EBITDA or some other broad gauge, but these are not accurate calculations of value. This will result in “a number,” but not a value.
