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

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.
