The Value Analysis is a limited scope business valuation designed specifically for the “Main Street” business. with sales of $1,000,000 or less. The report is approximately 30 pages and provides a summary of how the valuation conclusion was determined. Since most main street businesses are bought and sold on a multiple of cash flow, the basis of this valuation is Seller’s Discretionary Cash Flow. The analysis considers primarily historical and current financial performance and very little time is spent with the Balance Sheet. This appraisal assumes an asset sale rather than a stock sale and assumes that current assets (except inventory) and current liabilities are excluded. The report contains the following:

  • Historical Income Statement
  • Adjusted Cash Flow Statement
  • Comparable Sales (Market Approach)
  • Summary of Common Size Financial Statistics

The Merger & Acquisition Valuation is a comprehensive business valuation for transactional purposes and is developed in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. This valuation is intended for the larger small business with annual revenues in excess of $5,000,000, businesses that are expected to sell for more than $1,000,000, strategic acquisitions of niche businesses, and generally any business with significant growth expected in the future. The basis of the valuation is future earnings with the historical performance playing only a limited role in the valuation conclusion. The selection of guideline companies comes from both the private and public markets, which tends to make the valuation conclusion more aggressive.
