Valuing

Why a Business Valuation?

There are a number of reasons to get your business valuated every three to five years. These reasons may include:

  • Sale between partners
  • Estate tax issues
  • Divorce
  • Succession planning
  • Information for lending institutions

But, by far the most important reason is to assist in marketing the business for sale. If you are planning to sell your business, you need a business valuation.
Whatever the reason, Buehler Business Brokers/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.

Who Will Do the Business Valuation Analysis for My Business?

Buehler Business Brokers offers valuations and opinions of value for most needs. We specialize in business valuations for small and mid-market companies. We provide valuations for a range of purposes from establishing an asking price through the more complicated issues surrounding divorce, partnership issues and estate issues. We can help you get a value for your business. We will be happy to provide you with the credentials of appraisers working on your project.

Don Buehler will work with you to gather and package all the pertinent information for your valuation. He will develop the valuation by working with you, your CPA and a valuation partner if required. It will assure a valuation for your business based on:

• Rigorous asset-based, income-based, market-based and proprietary valuation methods
• An unparalleled database of business comparables at the national and local market level
• A recommended deal structure and a justification of the price for the buyer
• A business valuation format geared to the application requirements of commercial and SBA lenders

Some statistics:
In the business brokerage industry on average, businesses will sell at only 70% of the listing price. Valued companies sell at closer to 90% of listing price.
Industry averages indicate that only 20% of businesses listed go to closing. Valued companies close over 70% of the time.

Buyers don’t always believe sellers but most will put a high value on a third party professional business valuation service.
