Business Valuations

We know that business valuations are the foundation to a successful sale / purchase of a business. Transactions frequently fail when buyers, sellers and financiers cannot see eye-to-eye on value. Our business valuation process provides our clients with a distinct advantage in exit planning and negotiations. We perform business valuations and appraisals for small businesses, middle market companies, and business units (<$100M Revenues) of major corporations.
