The Process of Business Valuations
Every successful transaction begins with knowing the market value of the product, which in this case, is your business. To start the process of a company valuation, our analysts will request your business’s financial reports and other records. We will then recast the information to assess the cash flow that your operations generate. All of the valuations we perform are accredited. Among the factors that will affect your business valuation are your company’s financial history, processes, and the industry that it operates in. Once we’ve established the as-is price, A Neumann & Associates will make recommendations to enhance the value and marketability of your business.
How the Experts Valuate a Business
The valuation of your business is a crucial part of the process, and you must have a cursory understanding of the methods we use to arrive at the final price range. Two of the more common pricing methods are Discounted Cash Flow Analysis and Comparable Company Analysis.
DCFA – Discounted Cash Flow Analysis
This method examines the anticipated future cash flow of your business. Solid businesses have strong future cash flows. An investor purchasing your company today will want assurances that the enterprise will continue to generate cash into the future.
CCA – Comparable Company Analysis
In contrast to DCFA, the CCA method focuses on past, closed transactions over the past five years. That data is compared to similar data from other businesses of the same size in the same industry. This method provides the analyst with the prices paid for other, like businesses.
It’s important to remember that sellers will review these reports to determine whether they will receive good value for their investments. By using standard methods, all of the parties to the transaction are on the same page.
The Current Climate and Business Valuations
Near the end of Q-4 2019, many Orlando-based businesses were thriving. Few economists could anticipate the global economic shutdown that the CoViD-19 pandemic would bring. Consequently, many entrepreneurs looking to sell their businesses placed a pause on their plans, as did numerous investors rattled by the uncertainty. Now, with the U.S. economy showing signs of a rebound, the marketplace for businesses is beginning to solidify. While the health crisis is far from over, it’s more important than ever to have the guidance of a committed team to help you negotiate your transaction as new money enters the market.
Selling Your Business on the Market
Unlike many business brokerages, A Neumann & Associates, LLC works primarily with business sellers. Many brokerages opt to build lists of buyers, hoping to make a rapid commission by pairing them with a seller represented by another business broker. That method entails risks for sellers, which is why we prefer to avoid it. While we maintain an index of qualified investors, CEOs, owners, and other decision-makers, by focusing on the sellers of medium to large businesses, we can select from the multitudes of buyers and find excellent matches for our seller clients.
When you decide to market your business with A Neumann & Associates, once we determine the value of your business, we will present you with a list of qualified buyers. This process will reduce the time and resources necessary to vet qualified purchasers. All of the principal parties will be required to sign NDAs, which will prevent them from leaking information that could be detrimental to the negotiations or the transaction.
Qualified Buyer Engagement
There are a number of factors that determine which investors we will shortlist for any transaction. Many of our business brokers have bought, sold, and currently own businesses themselves, so they understand the importance of a qualified buyer. Does the buyer have the financial wherewithal to complete the transaction? Are they foreign nationals, and will they require a U.S. visa to be able to own and operate the business? What are their plans for the business once it’s changed hands? In the end, your requirements of a purchaser are what will determine the buyers that we approach.
Frequently Asked Questions
At A Neumann & Associates, we recognize the uniqueness of every business sale, which is why we recommend contacting us for an initial consultation. These are, however, some of the more frequently asked questions we receive from prospective clients.
What determines the best business brokers?
Choosing a business broker to manage the sale of your company can be a daunting process. We believe that selling a business requires a business brokerage that emphasizes the seller’s end of transactions. Additionally, you need a brokerage with extensive experience, having closed many transactions successfully.
Any business with a Better Business Bureau rating of A+ over multiple consecutive years is much more likely to be trustworthy and dependable. Finally, you should consider the educational background and credentials of the key personnel.
