Business valuation is a tool that helps shareholders determine the fair market value of their ownership. It can be performed for many purposes, including for financial reporting, litigation, transactional, business interruption, strategic and tax planning, among others. The valuation can be conducted for 100%, majority or minority-owned corporations. The most common methods used in business valuation are: income, asset or market approach. The method selected will depend on the type of transaction, nature of business, organizational structure and industry.
As a specialized business valuation firm with consultants certified by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA), we perform an in-depth financial assessment of the business to determine the right valuation. In conducting our analysis, we not only focus on the historical financials and forecasts, but we also consider the management team, operating assets, industry and competitors. Depending on the level of in-depth analysis and review, we can issue three types of reports: detailed, summary and calculation report as stated in NACVA’s professional standards.
A valuation report expressing a Conclusion of Value can be presented in either a Summary or Detailed Report. A Calculated Value must be presented in a Calculation Report.
