Business Valuation the Right Way

On the surface, conducting a business valuation seems simple. Look at gross sales or profits and make a few quick calculations.

Beneath the surface however, are many considerations that significantly influence that valuation and can only be determined by thorough research and analysis.

  • Nature of the business and its history
  • Economic outlook
  • Financial condition of the business
