Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 23, 2017
InvestmentBank.com--provider of advisory and software services for middle-market investment banks and their clients--is pleased to offer no-cost business valuations for companies with $5M or more in revenue and who expect a sale of the business in the next 12 to 24 months. The business valuation at no cost is limited to the first quarter of 2017. The no-cost valuation is intended to provide business owners with more readily-available data on the value they can expect from their business at the time of sale.
As part of the company appraisal and assessment, the InvestmentBank.com team will examine all aspects of the company to provide clients with a realistic value-range. The range will be determined based on both expected future performance as well as current market conditions, including comparable transactions. The team of valuation professionals includes MBAs, accountants and investment bankers with the hands-on experience of providing valuations across multiple industry sectors. “Our team of merger and acquisition experts maintain years of industry-specific experience at appropriately valuing and selling middle-market companies,” says Nate Nead, Managing Member of InvestmentBank.com.
Every business valuation report includes information on the overall industry sector (including industry growth potential); company-specific data and growth potential; trademark, intellectual property or other intangibles; trends for revenue, profit and adjusted/re-casted earnings (typically measured as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization or EBITDA); detailed information on the management team and its relevant experience; points of differentiation of the business relative to other industry peers; and detailed, reasonable comparable transactions. In addition, the report will include various types of valuation methodologies including EBITDA comparables, discounted cash flow analysis, sum-of-the-parts and asset-based approaches.
“By taking a holistic view of the business, its operations and potential viz-a-viz the industry, we are better able to provide a high-level view of the business value relative to its peers in a given industry sector,” says Nead. “It is important that every business owner understand the value of his or her company, especially as the eventual liquidity event approaches.” Such a valuation can be important for estate planning, financial planning and even partner buy-sell structuring.
One of the primary reasons the firm highly-encourages business owners to obtain a valuation sometime before a transaction event is to use the valuation as a gauge in assessing value-maximization strategies, including both short and long term options as the business approaches the critical M&A juncture. “Understanding the fair market value (FMV) of the business helps a company’s investment banker in crafting the best possible outcome for maximizing the final payout at the closing table,” says Carl Christensen, VP of Strategy. “The best scenario is to determine the FMV of the business and then offer reasonable process-based solutions, appropriately applied to ensure the company’s value is appropriately maximized through a broad, auction-based process,” he says.
