If you have thought about selling your business, or if you think this is something you may consider in the future, getting an Opinion of Value of your business now can indicate to you the suggested asking price range, if you put it on the market.
Unlike a full valuation, an Opinion of Value is used to provide a guide and understanding of value versus a complete analysis usually used in dispute resolution and other legal requirements, for example.
Your hope is that you are building something of value, but you need to know you are on-track in order to realistically unlock the likely value you will receive at closing.
Understanding a value range can help you make adjustments that improve on your company’s value proposition before you need or want to sell.
An Opinion of Value will help you understand your business’ value as it is viewed by prospective acquirers – not just by you. The idea is to make sure that the value of what is probably your largest and most important source of equity will be what you need it to be when the time comes to sell.
Calder Associates offers an Opinion of Value based on the financial and operational information you provide. However, determining value is more than just looking at your financial statements and tax returns. We take account of the other factors that determine value, such as organisation structure, customers, risk factors, market indicators, technology, comparable industry data and economic indicators.
