Not Just Math…Real-World Transaction Experience Behind the Numbers
Our company first started as an advisory firm to small business and mid size owners to assist in the confidential sale of their businesses. After expanding the company and representing business owners and sellers in the sale of their companies, we recognized that the difference between success and failure centered was on a quality professional business valuation.
Owners that had an accurate understanding of the value of their company were able to plan and make decisions on reality versus using misunderstood revenue and profit multiples. We learned that business owners with credible information to substantiate value were able to plan for their business exit as well as have a useful tool in their negotiations.
We made a strategic decision to transform our company from strictly a transaction advisory firm to a business valuation and business appraisal firm to reach a much wider market, both in geography and in scope. Though we do still sell companies, our roots are those that understand the reality of the marketplace.
