Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 5, 2010
Urmann SEO Consulting Services (UrmannSEO.com) announces the addition of a new division to its practice designed to evaluate both the art and science of valuations for internet companies and to provide existing top tier etailers access to exit planning services.
Daniel Urmann comments, "I recently received an email from a former client to whom I had sold the site I had incubated and developed, http://www.outdoorgardenfurniture.net (#1 on Google for “garden furniture”). I had sold this company at a pre-revenue level and after two years of management, he add achieved well over 2 million dollars in revenue and a million dollars in equity gains and was contemplating the sale of the business to a buyer from whom he had a solid cash offer. He was contemplating taking the offer or continuing to grow the business. He firmly believed he could double the business in size again given an additional year and he was interested in my analysis for selling or holding this asset” Urmann continues, "there is clearly a need for this kind of consulting work within the industry and we have included this segment of engagement work to our practice."
Given the level of value that is at risk for many companies a pre-sale could result in substantial value losses. Many etailers require a third party review of there companies to evaluate projected value and to audit the existing business both using standard business valuation analysis as well as a ecommerce and Search Engine Placement review.
Topics for consideration include but are not limited to first determining the appropriate standard and premise for the valuation, the normalization of financial statements through comparability, operating versus non operating, recurring and discretionary adjustments. Assessment of search engine risk,
competitive analysis, and an underlying audit of sustainability of existing rankings and placements are all essential issues.
Exit planning services are reserved for clients with companies in excess of 1 million dollars in annual revenues or higher. Fees begin at 40,000 USD per engagement. Please contact Dan Urmann directly with questions regarding this service.
