  Business Valuation  

Free Business Valuation

The value of a business is perhaps the most important consideration to business owners when contemplating the sale of a business.  Simply put, a business that is properly valued will generate the Most Offers and obtain the Best Price upon sale.  

Ascend Business Brokers offers a 100% Free Business Valuation for business owners considering the sale of their business,
which provides an estimate of the likely value of the business upon sale (assuming that the business is professionally and agressively marketed for sale).  The business valuation requires financial information and other information concerning the business, to which we apply a Market Approach, and various industry specific metrics and guidelines.

All inquiries are held strictly confidential, and are performed at absolutely no cost or obligation to the business owner.  If you are considering the sale of your business, call or email Ascend Business Brokers today!

Business Valuation Reports

In some cases, it may be advisable to have an independently certified business valuation report prepared for your company. This is particularly true when selling a middle-market business. A third-party business valuation adds credibility to the asking price for the business and most times is necessary in order to obtain acquisition financing for the buyer. Moreover, a business valuation many times identifies key issues and information that prove to be very helpful in negotiating and closing a transaction.

Ascend Business Brokers offers a variety of independently certified professional business valuation services, depending on the size and complexity of the business being valued. These services include rendering what is commonly known as a Preliminary Estimate of Value, Letter of Opinion, Value Analysis, Limited Formal Business Valuation, or M & A Valuation, once again depending upon the circumstances.

Independently certified business valuations are prepared by business appraisers with one, or several, of the following accreditations: ABV (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants), CVA (National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts), ASA (American Society of Appraisers) and CBA (Institute of Business Appraisers). There are many reasons for valuing a business other than for the purposes of selling. Business valuation is an important tool for tax and estate planning, gifts, ESOPs, divorce settlements, raising capital, and for certain types of business litigation.
