Reasons for a Business Valuation

SBA Business Valuation

We do more valuations for SBA loan applications than for any other purpose…

Startup Companies

Startups companies often need a business valuation, and for a number of possible reasons. One common reason for a valuation is when a startup is looking for new investors: the next round of funding. An independent, impartial, third-party assessment of value serves to support existing owners in their “ask” from potential investors.

Converting from a C Corp to an S Corp

Getting a credible, independent business valuation is essential to shareholder interests when converting from a C corporation to an S corporation…

Business Buyers and Sellers

Buying or selling a business interest is inherently risky and fraught with uncertainty. Is the buyer overpaying? Will the seller receive less than fair consideration?

Buy-Sell Agreements

A buy-sell agreement is a legally binding contract between the owners of a business and typically addresses several important questions...

General Corporate Planning

It is very common for business owners and executives to be unaware of the true value of their company. Often, their sense of value is derived from perhaps a second-hand story about the sale of another company or a "rule of thumb" the owner overheard. Such indications of value are often unreliable.

Qualified Source

Our business appraisers are holders of the highly respected Certified Business Appraiser (CBA) credential, a designation recognized by the courts, the government, and the valuation community. For example, CBA’s meet the Small Business Administration’s requirements that define a ‘qualified source’; CBA’s opinions of value are used by the SBA to validate business value when granting government-backed business acquisition loans. The CBA credential was granted by the the Institute of Business Appraisers (IBA) and is presently monitored by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts, (NACVA).

Business Valuation Experience

In addition to the CBA credential, our appraisers also hold graduate degrees in business. They have extensive experience valuing small to mid-sized companies in a broad range of industries: from oil and gas to social media, for-profit education to medical marijuana, in addition to common “main street” industries such as retail, advertising, and distribution.
