New Study Released on Private Company Business Value Creation

Share Article

A new interim study has been released on how private business owners can increase the value of their companies up to 5 times before exiting without borrowing a dime. An Executive Summary of the study authored by Dr. Gary W. Ampulski, Managing Partner of Midwest Genesis, a Value Enhancement and Exit Planning advisory services firm, is being published in the May Issue of Printing Industries of America -“The Magazine”.

The study derives results from consideration of industry benchmarks from 248 respondents to an annual survey conducted by the National Association of Print Leadership (NAPL), government data on the print industry and a private capital market valuation model applied to the factors that impact investment risk. The model is based on several years of research on the Lower Middle Private Capital Markets and input from more than 835 privately held business owners (segmented by industry and annual sales) who have received offers for their companies in the last eighteen months.

In addition to company size, margin, growth and cash required to run the business, the valuation model used in this study considers the risks associated with generating a future profit stream as a key component. The analysis illustrates value achievement for four levels of company variability including: Below Average and Average Companies, Profit Leaders and Value Leaders. Through the application of industry benchmarking, cost controls, business process optimization and risk management, key performance indicators have been identified to help private company owners move up the corporate value scale and maximize both the profit and value multiple for their business before the owner’s exit.
