Is Business Valuation a formal process?
It is indeed. We examine every aspect of your company to assess its value. This provides credible, transparent results that lenders, investors, potential buyers, and other stakeholders can trust.
How long does a Business Valuation take?
Every business is unique, and so is every valuation process. On average , a formal valuation takes four to eight weeks, depending on your company size and how long it takes to provide company background, documents, and other requested information.
If you need your valuation on a tight deadline (i.e., for an upcoming merger or acquisition transaction, court proceeding, or a tax or audit deadline), we can expedite for a fee. Conversely, if you have the flexibility to slow down the valuation process, it can potentially reduce costs.
At the start of our process, we’ll offer a comprehensive list of all needed documents, working closely with you to define the timeline upfront.
How often should a valuation be performed?
Your company’s value changes daily—just like the big public companies on Fox Business and CNBC. By performing periodic valuations, you can better track how your decisions affect your valuation, informing future risks and opportunities. Best practice is to perform a valuation on at least an annual basis.
Also, a valuation should always be performed ahead of a sale, merger, acquisition, shareholder conﬂict, or any major strategic decision so all parties can operate on the same objective set of facts.
