What's your business worth?

Every business should know their valuation. Our reports are designed specifically for small businesses.

Why you should know the value of your business

Setting the Right Price

You want to sell your business for a fair price that reflects its worth. A valuation helps you determine a realistic and attractive selling price.

Attracting Buyers

A well-priced business is more attractive to buyers. A valuation helps you showcase the value and potential of your business, making it more appealing to potential buyers.

Negotiating Power

You have more leverage during negotiations with buyers. You can confidently justify your asking price and negotiate from a position of strength.

Planning For The Future

Knowing your business’s value is helpful for future planning. It can inform strategic decisions, succession planning, and potential expansion or investment opportunities.

Small Business Valuation Reports

Everything you need to understand the value of your business.

A business valuation is like putting a price tag on your business. It’s an assessment of how much your business is worth in the market. Just like when you sell a house, knowing the value helps you set the right price and negotiate with potential buyers.

Also known as the comparable sales approach, is a method used to determine the value of your businesses by comparing it to similar businesses that have recently been sold in the market.

Analyzing the selling prices of these comparable businesses, we can estimate the fair market value of their own business.

Buyers focus on businesses that are ready to sell

I look at dozens of deals every week and most lack the basic information we need to engage. We simply move on. 

Andrew M, SMB Acquirer

I see too many sellers unprepared for the process of selling their business. It often kills the deal or even prevents me from sending them an LOI.
