4 VALUATION MODELS

   33,000 BUSINESSES SOLD COMPARABLES

Our Business Valuations utilize 4 different valuation models in order to arrive at the Market Value of a business.  The Market Value is expressed in terms of cash equivalents, at which property would change hands between a hypothetical willing and able buyer and a hypothetical willing and able seller, acting at arms length in an open and unrestricted market, when neither is under compulsion to buy or sell and when both have reasonable knowledge of the relevant facts, Business Valuations Group utilizes these Valuation Models since they are the most commonly used models for valuing a business.

 

We pull comparable business sales from our database of over 33,000 business that have previously sold.  We compare business types by NAICS code and geography to get the best comparable sales for the Business Valuation.
