Offering Value

We guide you through every step in the process

When you are looking to by or sell a business it is important to determine the value of the company. Connecticut Business Brokers can meet with you and assist with appraisals and valuations.

Many decisions must be made before negotiations to buy or sell can continue successfully. A value of the business must be established and must be acceptable to both buyer and seller. The business value must result from the logical and objective efforts of all the parties involved.

There are two basic methods of determining the value of a business. The first is based on expectations of future profits and return on investment. The second method is based on the appraised value of the assets at the time of negotiation.

Future Profits

Forces the buyer and seller to give at least minimum attention to such factors as the trends in sales and profits, the capitalized value of the business, and expectancy of return on investment.

Asset Appraisal

Assumes that the business assets will continue to be used in the business. This method gives little consideration to the future of the bushiness. It determines asset values only as they relate to the present and is the more commonly used method because the projections needed to value the bushiness on the basis of future profits are difficult to make.

An appraisal is a valuable business-planning tool. Much the same way as a checkup at the doctor evaluates the health of a person; the business valuation can provide a baseline reading of the health of the business. It can also be a comparison to where the firm stands when compared to industry averages.

Certified Business Valuation

What is a certified business valuation?

A credentialed business valuation professional will have received extensive training, is in good standing, and follows specific standards and practices to determine the value of a business. These professionals can provide a fixed value (based on a specific date) that could be recognized legally.

The Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV®) credential is granted exclusively by the AICPA to CPAs and qualified valuation professionals. The ABV credential gives members an advantage by arming them with the tools and resources needed to provide the best service to their clients and employers.

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)

Discounted cash flow (DCF) is a valuation method used to estimate the value of an investment based on its expected future cash flows. DCF analysis attempts to figure out the value of an investment today based on projections of how much money it will generate in the future. This applies to the decisions of investors in companies or securities, such as acquiring a company or buying a stock, and for business owners and managers looking to make capital budgeting or operating expenditures decisions
