Strategic Preparedness in Securing Market Value



We Listen to You


Goals & Objectives 


Can You Increase the Market Value of Your Business? In a word – YES! You just need to engage someone who really understands how a buyer will value YOUR company! 

Securing Market Value

We have assisted both buyers and sellers of businesses for decades.  And that’s very important – here’s why. It’s a challenge and critically important that a business owner understands what a buyer is looking at to value their company.  No doubt you have poured your blood, sweat, and tears into your business.  But let’s face it – the buyer’s perception of value is all that matters to them.  But here’s the good news, if we can help you understand and proactively address the benchmarks that impact value, together we can address them and thus increase your company’s true market value.


Think about this:

First - How much of your company’s value is you?  To state this another way – What’s the value of your company without you in it?

Second - How can you make your business more attractive to buyers, investors, and their advisors?

Third - How can you better ensure a third party will value your company closer to its full potential market value?

AND Finally – How can you ensure, that at the end of the sale process, you have incorporated the necessary business, tax, and legal planning to ensure you end up with the maximum amount of money in your pocket, after taxes and expenses, as possible?  This is a critical area that we have a tremendous amount of expertise.

We work with a lot of business owners.  We understand your problem.  You, as a business owner have been so focused on business operations, growing your business, paying taxes, handling employee issues, and everything else that has enabled you to keep the doors open, you just haven’t had the time, so you have missed the strategic planning opportunities to incorporate changes that will ultimately increase the potential value of YOUR business. 


You’ve become an expert at solving other people’s problems – now let us help you solve one of your business’ biggest issues – your business’ market value to a third-party buyer, investor, or lender.  If you don’t fix it, the next owner will. 

Your company should not be dependent on any one person.

If the future success of your business is dependent upon a few star employees or one person on the leadership team, it can impact the financial potential of the company and could degrade valuation. Ensure your company has great processes in place that could be executed by others if necessary. This makes it easier for a potential buyer or investor to envision how the company could continue to grow and expand even without the current owners or key employees.
