Selling your business is a major decision! You have devoted your time, money, and energy into building, running, and operating your business.

Business Valuation

Business Valuations have grown to be both a science and an art. To arrive at a defensible business valuation (value) an expert on business valuations needs to follow the standards and norms.

Due Diligence

Due diligence is the process of systematically researching and verifying the accuracy of a statement. Due diligence describes the degree of effort required by law or industry standard.

Trusted Valuation Resource

There are many reasons to have a valuation for a closely held business:

  • Are the revenues represented verifiable
  • Is there a customer concentration issue
  • Industry trends and pricing norms for this type of business
  • Should I buy stock or assets in the business
  • How do I optimize my tax position
  • And much more…………………….
