Why a Business Valuation?

  • Sale between partners/ stockholders
  • Estate tax issues
  • A Divorce
  • Create a succession plan
  • Information for a lender to transfer the business into a trust
  • Buy Sell Agreements

By far the most important reason:

Is to assist in marketing the business for sale. You need a business valuation.
Whatever the reason, ROI is your one stop source for an accurate and timely business valuation.

The value of your business and the price must be justifiable to potential buyers. An independent third party business valuation will assure that the price presented to buyers is believable, reasonable and well positioned against comparable businesses available in the market.
