Business Valuations

Many business owners believe the value of their business is measured in net profit or gross sales, multiplied by an industry rule of thumb. This is simply not the case. In fact, the application of an industry rule of thumb formula often results in a value determination that differs greatly from the actual value that we could help you determine. The result of an inaccurate valuation, regardless of whether it is high or low, generally leads to undesirable consequences. Let us help you keep what you have worked so hard to build by assisting you with a professional business valuation. Here are some of the situations that a valuation would benefit:

  • Purchase, Sale, Merger of a Business
  • Buy/Sell Agreements
  • Estate Tax Planning
  • Family Limited Partnerships or LLCs
  • Gifting Programs and Gift Taxes
  • Succession/Exit Planning
  • Marital Dissolution
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
  • Charitable Contributions

  • Split-Ups/Spin-Offs of a Division or Subsidiary
