Business Valuations

Business owners often believe that the only time they will need a valuation is when they prepare to sell their company. They often don’t give much thought to a valuation for other purposes. While a valuation is commonly conducted when a business is being sold, many are surprised to find out there are other reasons they may need to have a valuation.

Why Valuations are Needed

  • Selling a business
  • Looking to purchase another company
  • Developing a new shareholder or partner agreement
  • Seeking company financing
  • Succession planning
  • Estate and gift tax planning
  • Identifying benchmarks for strategic planning
  • Litigation purposes (divorce, partner disputes)

Regardless of the reason for the valuation, it’s important to identify a provider that offers the right mix of technical expertise and practical guidance. Our seasoned roster of certified valuation professionals offers a unique blend of technical expertise and practical experience. We do more than just determine the value of your business; we provide direction on how to use this information for planning purposes or provide litigation support services should they be needed.
