Business valuation of privately held companies

To maximize the value of the business the valuation should be well planned and executed.  The reasons for business valuations are plenty but a short list includes:

  1. Your bank requires it if you’d like to reinvest in your business.

  2. A buyer has presented you with an offer and perhaps their own valuation.

  3. Your business is your retirement plan. If you don’t know the value of your business, it’s difficult to determine your retirement income.

  4. Estate planning. Knowing the value of your business will assist you in decisions such as wills and life insurance designations.

  5. Baseline value knowledge for your growth strategy.

  6. Unforeseen and unplanned reasons such as a challenge in court.
