WE WIN IN COURT

 

Need a bulletproof Business Valuation

“I greatly appreciate the work Eric did on the Valuation of my company. It stood up in court. (April 2017) The Judge soundly admonished the Chartered Business Valuator who tried to contradict Eric’s valuation. If someone needs confirmation and wants to speak to me; Eric has permission to release my number”. (Julian)




Second opinion on a questionable Valuation?

We find that most small business valuators concentrate on Asset, Market, and Income approaches developed in the  1970’s. These are generally easy to defeat in 2017 as most businesses are now made up of 50% or more in “intangible assets” these valuators neglect, or have no means, to properly measure.


FACTORS AFFECTING VALUE

This is the key Point: If someone is presenting or proposing a valuation without taking these factors into consideration the valuation number is likely to be misleading and almost certainly not accurate for a small business.

  • Financials
  • Return on Investment
  • How has R&D been accounted for?
  • Shareholder Agreement (if one exists)
  • Value of Employees (cost of recruitment and training as a group)
  • Client Base and cost to rebuild
  • Value of Supply Chain
  • Value of Distribution Network if one exists
  • Internet Presence and Use (social network)
  • Dominance if any in the marketplace
  • Knowledge Base of Owner and Employees
  • Processes and Procedures Documentation (How well are all aspects of the company documented?)
  • Industry Averages
  • Lease Terms
  • Leasehold Improvements
  • Equipment
  • Inventory
  • Risk
  • Opportunity
  • Liquidity
  • Leverage - Cost of money.  Is leverage applicable and if so at what risk?
  • Minority Interest (if applicable)
  • Special Interest Purchaser (Partners are also special interest purchasers as they have more knowledge, interest, and opportunity, with less risk than regular buyers.)
  • How well is the business/practice expected to function with changes in management? (if applicable)
  • Return on Investment is always my first and last consideration

In addition to understanding the “Factors Affecting Value” We have a proprietary process that allows us to measure them.

 

  • How to measure the value of  Processes and Procedures.

  • How to measure the value of Employees.

  • How to measure the value of the Client Base.

     

This is where our system allows us to measure the value of a business in a more accurate manner.

 

 

How Financials Can Be Deceiving:
(This is the kind of practical solution offered by our system.)

Accounting for tax purposes is totally different than interpreting financial statements for Business Valuation Purposes. Let us give you just one example: (Think Partnership or Divorce)

For tax purposes R&D is an expense in the year the R&D occurred. For the purpose of an accurate valuation the R&D should be amortized over a period of 5 to 12 years. HUGE DIFFERENCE.

The financials must be normalized to reflect proper treatment of R&D. If we didn’t do this a company could spend 95% (or all) of the profit on R&D and might successfully claim the company to be worth very little for a short period of time. Perhaps not fraud but certainly manipulation, depending upon the purpose. (Divorce or other partnership)

This can be an add-on business or a full time business operated from a home office. This is a relationship business. Everyone’s life is different. With this work you could choose to build your relationships with the accountants and lawyers in the eight nicer months; then work winter in a warmer climate with good Internet. You will need to fly out for two to three weeks of hands on training and the rest will be in your home town, on the job, phone, and Internet.

Trust Your Accountant and/or Lawyer

Show this information to your accountant and your lawyer. Ask them if they would refer clients to you if you were to take the training and work with us? Remember most of the work initially will done by us. I expect both your accountant and lawyer will tell you they could refer 1 to 3 clients per year. It is then a question of how many accountants and lawyers you can build relationships with. If you are not totally confident you could bring 12 to 15 clients in the first year you should not consider doing this.

Contact me for more information. I can send a valuation example and more details. 
To be considered you must have at least 5 years of successful business experience.
If you truly enjoy learning and working with intangibles, this could be rewarding at many levels!
