We provide business valuations for those owners who would like an idea of what their business might be worth and more in-depth valuations and consulting services for those who would consider selling in the future and would like to improve their potential selling price. While no valuation methodology can guarantee exact results, the multiple valuation methodology methods CGK uses hope to triangulate a range of potential values. Although selling a business is based on the highest price that a ready, willing, and able buyer would pay and the lowest price a ready, willing and able seller would accept, with neither being under any pressure to act, it is very much a market-based function. There are also constraints to these valuations based on what lenders will loan for a potential acquisition. With all of these forces in play, a business valuation will give a potential business seller a range of values they can expect as they bring their business to the marketplace for sale.
