What is the Benefit to a Small Business Valuation?
A business valuation is an insightful tool that can be applied to many situations throughout the life of a business. In addition to the situations listed below, a business valuation can be utilized by the management team to help mitigate risks and build wealth in specifically identified areas, thus creating more value within the company.
Growing the market value of your company and reporting on specific measures of that growth on a regular basis should be a normal expectation of the management team. When it comes to increasing the value, what management focuses its energy on will make a substantial difference. The market value of your company is not based on its past performance unless the past performance provides a prospective buyer with a clear picture of how the company will perform going forward. There are a number of ratios and indicators that can serve to inform the development of that picture.
