What does a business valuation cost? 

Our fees are based on time and complexity.  We charge much less than the big accounting firms, and you receive personalized service. Pricing starts at $4,000 and we provide not to exceed fees.  We keep fees reasonable by partnering with professionals who know your industry.

What does "good" look like? 

Unlike the solo practitioner who only does valuations when it's not tax season, we maintain the data sources necessary for a substantiated report. Our staff are experienced and designated.  Ask for a sample report or experience with a particular industry.  

What is Equity Value Enhancement? 

New wealth can abound, even in uncertain markets, by scaling a company's value in as little as 6 to 24 months.  Three components underpin the concept of equity value enhancement: maximizing human capital; mastering risk; and ensuring every dollar spent is optimally leveraged. Ultimately, freeing up time and resources in the pursuit of new opportunities, while keeping a watchful eye on risk, is paramount in being an industry brand.

What does the process look like? 

Call or email our office.  A staff member will ask you a handful of questions to understand what your needs are and provide you with a quote for services.  After you receive a proposal letter, the requested documents can be provided by mail, email or through the cloud. Usually within a week, we will review everything you've provided and you'll receive a short list of inquiries or follow up questions.   Upon receipt of responses/additional information we will complete our analyses and send you a draft report for review.  A typical project will take about 20-30 working days from start to completion.  Click here for a detailed outline of the process.

What is a discount?

A noncontrolling  or “minority” interest is often discounted below its pro rata value.  So, if equity is $1 million and a 10% block is held, the $100,000 is reduced for this impairment.   A discount for lack of marketability (DLOM) reflects many factors including a limited pool of buyers; uncertainty and risk of the period (duration) before a sale occurs (if ever); and difficulty and costs associated with creating liquidity (converting ownership interests; especially, noncontrolling ones, into cash).
