When one is considering selling a business, a business valuation enables you to better understand the realistic value of your company and confirm in advance whether selling the company would enable you to achieve your financial goals. A business valuation provides a business owner with an accurate tool that allows the owner to make an informed decision about the viability and timing of the sale of their business.
Roadmap for Building Value
An additional benefit of a professional business valuation is that even if you determine that it is not the right time to sell your business, it will provide you with a road map of what you need to do to increase the value of your business for a future sale.
In conducting a valuation, Sun identifies the key value drivers that increase value as well as the operational risk factors that detract from value. Knowledge of these risks will enable you to take actions to improve and mitigate these factors. This advanced planning and focus significantly improves marketability and positions the company to achieve a more favorable price when the time is right to sell.
Sun Business Valuations LLC is affiliated with Sun Mergers & Acquisitions, LLC a company involved in managing the sale of privately held companies. Our team of professionals has been representing business owners in the sale of small and mid-market companies for over 30 years and has completed hundreds of transactions. This transactional experience enables us to provide you with valuation feedback based upon a real market understanding involving similar privately held companies.
Sun Business Valuations will work closely with you to analyze the financial statements, which are generally prepared for tax reporting purposes, not business valuation or business sale purposes. We will work closely with you to normalize or adjust the “benefit stream” in order to more accurately represent the value of the business to a third party buyer. These adjustments are necessary to present a fair and complete view of the business. We will also work with the shareholders to gain a complete understanding of the operational and non-financial factors that impact business valuation.
