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
  • Earning capacity
  • Dividend paying capacity
  • Prior stock transactions
  • Existence of intangible value
  • Sale of stock involving similar businesses

The determination of an opinion of value for a privately held enterprise is more than a mathematical exercise. Bill Howell brings the perspective of a business person plus his high-level financial expertise to each project.
