How much is your business worth?

Nowadays, a business owner must know the answer to this question.

If you are thinking about selling your business, you need a business valuation to help you realize the full and fair value that can be obtained from a sale. If you are asking a price that is too high, you will waste valuable time and effort in trying to accomplish a sale. Good prospective purchasers may be lost in the process.

Or perhaps you may need to have a business VALUATION prepared for:

  • COMPREHENSIVE BUSINESS PLANNING
  • TO DETERMINE A FAIR PRICE FOR THE ACQUISITION OF A COMPANY
  • SETTLE DISPUTES BETWEEN PARTNERS
  • ESTATE & GIFT PLANNING
  • TO ASSIST IN OBTAINING OR DEVELOPING ADDITIONAL FINANCING
  • TAX PURPOSES
  • ESTABLISHING FAIR MARKET VALUE FOR SHARE HOLDER INTEREST

We can help you. And we can do it affordably.
