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!

My niche is Small Business Valuations with special expertise in understanding "intangible assets" that are often missed as they don't show up on the Balance Sheet or Statements of Profit and Loss. In addition to Financial Statements I take into account; Processes, Procedures, Knowledge Base of Owner and Employees, Internet Presence and Use, Documentation and Risk. This is what makes our method different and we believe more accurate than traditional valuation models.

 I am a CPPA Accredited Appraiser.


My document can be used in Divorce Court or Canada Revenue Agnecy disputes.

The process is this:

  • You would send me the financials and by that I mean 3 years of Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Statements.

  • I would review the financials then set up a convenient time to speak with you for intake and review. I can arrange a conference call if there is more than one owner to be included.

  • I may need a secondary Intake after I do my preliminary. 

  • I do my analysis and write the report.

  • I send the valuation report to you for review to see if there are any errors or omissions to be corrected; if none, we are complete.


Turnaround time estimated at one week from the time I receive financials.

Valuation and Appraisal is Our Full Time Business.

JUDGES - LAWYERS - PARTNERS IN DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS
PARTNERS IN BUSINESS DISPUTES - BUSINESS BUYERS BUSINESS SELLERS - CANADA REVENUE AGENCY

Bring the judge a valuation based on experience and logic.
WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS VALUATION DO YOU NEED?

 FAIR MARKET VALUE - ONGOING OPERATION
 FAIR MARKET VALUE - ASSETS IN PLACE BUT NOT OPERATING
 ORDERLY LIQUIDATION
 ORDERLY LIQUIDATION VALUE OVER TWO TO FOUR MONTHS

 INSURANCE VALUATION
Are you insured for replacement costs of rebuilding a business after a loss including Intangible Assets? Have your insurer acknowledge and accept valuation prior to buying insurance. 
• Value of recruitment and training of a group of employees to the position of cohesively working together as they were prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss. 
• Value of rebuilding client base to where it was prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss. 
• Value of reimplementation of systems and procedures in place prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss.

• LOANS:
Banks are losing a lot of business these days to lenders who understand intangible assets. Define the value of your intangible assets. If your bank is not considering the value of your clearly defined intangibles you need to find an new lender who is better educated in your business model. 
ABOUT US:

Our Valuations are generally half price or less than others. This is possible because we are more focused on Small Business Valuations and not working for Corporations.

The niche we serve is Small Business Valuations with special expertise in understanding intangible assets that are often missed as they don't show up on the Balance Sheet. In addition to Financial Statements I take into account; processes, procedures, value of supply chain, value of distribution network, knowledge base of owner and employees, value of employees (cost of recruitment and training as a group,) value of client base, Internet presence and use, documentation and risk. 

The rate of return on the real Normalized Net Income is always the first and last consideration. 

Value to who? The bank, the seller, the buyer; our valuations can include more than one.
 

 

How to value an Ottawa business; the valuation or appraisal is a process.  Once we have all of the information we need, via the intake conference, your valuation report will be delivered to you in approximately two business days. We refer to our evaluation as a Value Statement.
WE COME AT THIS FROM FOUR DISTINCT VIEWPOINTS:

EXISTING ACCOUNTING:

The view from an accounting perspective; relying on the the numbers created by the clients' existing accountant, then finding the real "normalized net income" through a proprietary process.



RISK:
Looking from the insurance viewpoint and assessing risk to buyer.

HUMAN CAPITAL:
From the point of view of a resume broker; assessing the value of the 
human capital involved in the business.


INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND PROPRIETARY PROCESSES:
Understanding, assessing and estimating the intellectual property and proprietary knowledge that is transferred with the business.  Change of ownership and management does matter.
INTAKE CONFERENCE:
This is a 2 to 3 hour conference call that can include as many stakeholders as required.
As no two businesses are the same, the questions will vary.
Below is a list of some of the areas that we will cover.

(1) Why: What is the purpose of the valuation?

(2) Who: Value with whom owning and managing the business?

  • Your current value with current ownership and management?
  • Value with a new business owner with less experience?
  • Value with buyer like you with similar business management experience?
  • Value with an upscale buyer who has the financial ability to build on what you have accomplished in your business?
  • These WHO questions make a huge difference to the final appraisal.

(3) Normalized Net Income: I must understand what questions to ask to be able to determine the real 'Normalized Net Income.' This figure is seldom what you see in your year-end accounting, which is generally calculated to determine the lowest amount of tax legally payable.

  • Owners and families are often overpaid or underpaid depending upon individual tax situations.
  • What would the owner have to pay someone to fill his/her position in the business?
  • There are about twenty more normalizing questions that must be answered and these can be different depending upon the answers given to previous questions. This is where experience counts.

(4) Leasehold Improvements: These need to be covered regardless of whether the building is leased or owned.
It is important that the right questions are asked in any comprehensive appraisal.

(5) Hard Assets: Determining fair market value.
Book value means nothing if we want to know the true value of the business.

  • Business Equipment
  • Business Inventory

(6) Intellectual Property: Copyright, Proprietary Processes, Business Operation Manuals. These are your operating manuals; the step by step instructions on how to run your business and how to train others to operate your business. This greatly affects value; positively if it you have them and negatively if you don’t have them, and much more negative if it would not be possible for you to have a practical manual that would allow for your business to continue if you were unable to function.

(7) Value of Cash Flow: This is calculated by finding the normalized net income then multiplying it by a ratio determined by risk, opportunity, and the intellectual property affecting the means to produce.

(8) Soft Assets: Do you have intellectual property that has fair market cash value outside of your business?

(9) Risk: What are the possible risks to your business?
No appraisal can be completed without properly understanding risk.

    • How long is the business lease?
    • Are there reasonable options to extend the lease?
    • If the owner of the building also owns the business has the rent been paid at market rates?
    • Are you in a one industry area, or is the area changing?



  • Are industry trends your friend or enemy?
  • Are there any Government regulations?
  • Staffing?
  • Competition and pricing challenges?
  • Changes to accessibility? Road changes?
  • How good is the succession plan, and do you even have one?
  • Operations and Training Manuals - How complete?
  • Additional questions depending upon the answers given.

(8) Value of Cash Flow: This is calculated by finding the normalized net income then multiplying it by a ratio determined by risk, opportunity, and the intellectual property affecting the means to produce the cash flow.

Depending upon the complexity of your business, you can expect 48 hours to get a report back to you.

As you can well understand, no computer program, gross sales or other rule of thumb guessing techniques are going to be helpful for you in determining the real value of your business. In fact, these techniques could harm you. Valuation and appraisal is our full time business. We do a lot of business valuations.

 

Some of Our Testimonials:

 

When a small publicly traded TSX listed company needed a report on fair value to meet TSX requirements they turned to Eric Jordan...

TSX - Fair Value Report: When a small publicly traded TSX listed company needed a report on fair value to meet TSX requirements they turned to Eric Jordan at Pin Services Ltd. You can view the opinion on fair value report as part of the documentation for the Securities Commission.

CrossFit Gym: When Evan Lindsay needed to understand the value of his gym he worked with Eric Jordan. (LINK PENDING)  "Working with Eric was a productive experience. He listened, was direct and was transparent, providing great feedback on my business. The final report was professional and conveyed the value that my company had built for the last 5 years. I look forward to working with Eric again in the future and highly recommend his services."
-Evan Lindsay, Saskpro CrossFit. 

Alberta Treasury Branch: The Alberta Treasury Branch needed a business valuation before they could provide Wendy Coombs a business loan for the purchase of another medical clinic business in Calgary. (LINK PENDING) "We recently applied for a bank loan to finance the acquisition of a medical clinic in Calgary Alberta. We have been customers of Alberta Treasury Branch for 18 years and despite having many prior business loans, for the first time ever they required a Business Valuation completed by an experienced business evaluator. Banks are becoming even more risk adverse and the requirements for financing increase with respect to their due diligence. We presented Eric Jordan from Pin Services Ltd.. The Alberta Treasury Branch agreed Eric had the experience they were looking for in an evaluator. His business valuation was very thorough and not only did it get us the financing we needed, it was very useful in facilitating the negotiations and securing a fair price for our business purchase." 
-Wendy Coombs CEO, VP Business Development Momentum Health.

When a chemical manufacturing company in Georgia wanted to know the value of what was being spun off into a subsidiary, they got their valuation from Eric Jordan. Six months later in March 2015 they came back wanting the whole company evaluated!

(1)   Each business is unique. Businesses are not created equal. Comparables don’t work. Neither do formulas based upon Gross Sales. We focus on your business and your unique situation.

(2)   Business only breaks even but owner and family do very well. We understand how and why that happens.

(3)   Able to hear all sides of a dispute, ask the right questions and grasp the bigger picture.

(4)   Normalizing the anomalies of business including those things done for tax considerations.

(5)   Presenting the information in a logical way buyers, sellers and bankers (including family) can understand. Paving the way for proper decisions to be made.

For those who need to know and understand the "REAL WORLD" value of their business.

Thinking of IPO:

Let us reason that an IPO is a chance to establish a new shareholder base. By pricing the IPO low, a company surely had its pick of new investors since most everyone, seeing the obvious good deal, would want to get in. Have the management team spend time evaluating who is most likely to hold your IPO stock and add to their ownership over time, provided the company does its job well. Stack the shareholder list with the best, long-term oriented fund managers. This will serve the company well for years to come.

You should spend time getting to know potential VC investors before you take money into your company. Prioritizing things like alignment of outlook and ability to help add value ahead of initial price. Taking the highest price limits dilution in the short-term, but if you add a VC who either can’t help or has a different vision than you for your company, where will you get future growth?

There are places to learn about Valuation and Appraisal. http://www.senecacollege.ca/ce/business/real-estate/appraisal-institute.html Seneca offers subjects which lead to the Appraisal Institute of Canada's CRA and AACI designations, as well as the University of British Columbia's (UBC) Diploma in Urban Land Economics.

The first rule of Business Valuation and Appraisal is of course Knowledge and Experience. There are other aspects:

The principle of objectivity imposes the obligation to be impartial, intellectually honest, disinterested, and free from conflicts of interest.

Business Valuator Business valuation Appraisal  $1,000 to $5,000 for most situations.

 Sellers - Buyers - Value for Divorce - Insurance - Tax Needs - Loans Special Skills in Business Conflict Resolution

The business is being valued with what ownership and management? Change ownership and management and you have a very different value outcome.

 My niche is Small Business Valuations with special expertise in understanding "intangible assets" that are often missed as they don't show up on the Balance Sheet or Statements of Profit and Loss. In addition to Financial Statements I take into account; Processes, Procedures, Knowledge Base of Owner and Employees, Internet Presence and Use, Documentation and Risk. This is what makes our method different and we believe more accurate than traditional valuation models.

     The report I return to you will be something easily understood by both you, and those you present it to. It will be practical. It will have reasons that will make sense. It will take into consideration much more than just the tax numbers, and it will be a lot less expensive than any valuation you might get elsewhere. Unless it is complex I will give you my report for a very economical $1,000  (one thousand dollars) plus taxes. For the more complex expect a price of $5,000. 

Understanding or estimating value is simple yet very complicated at the same time. Estimating values of small business is what I do for a living.

Everyone thinks they are unique and that every small business is unique; they are correct.

BUT

Basic rules apply to all and you must ask the question:

(1) Value of Cash Flow in relation to earnings: (PE) Price to Earnings.

(2) Risk

(3) Underlying value in patented processes and proprietary procedures and position in the marketplace.

(4) Value in the intellectual property of the workforce.

(5) And of course the value of hard assets. 

The problem of course is that most people who value things are concerned about protecting their butts - so instead of viewing each business individually as they should - They put forward "comparables" of other individual businesses who they suggest are similar for appraisal when in fact that is almost never the case; look at (1) to (5) above to understand business valuation. 

NOTHING IS WRITTEN IN STONE. A McDonald's Franchise or something like that could be the exception to these rules.

 

All of us who have been in business know a business has to provide us with a wage equal to what the marketplace would pay us and not to forget management fees. In addition a business has to pay all other Infrastructure associated with the business including equipment, land, and buildings, whether it is a lease or mortgage. Even if purchased outright there has to be a decent return on the capital invested.

What are you putting in?

What are you taking out?

What is the correct risk reward ratio?

 

An accurate valuation by an experienced valuator is important to making proper decisions.

Area Information

I have had the opportunity to share my experience in Vancouver with some dear friends and their

daughters. I must say that I was pleased with the way we enjoyed our vacation. We didn’t

even want to go back home! The customer service was excellent. I now have an addition

to my family and I can’t wait until she experiences the fun and “at home feeling” while

being away from home. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime. My family had a fun and

memorable time and they can't stop talking about it. To have the whole family on board was

a truly amazing experience. I will definitely be making a special trip to Vancouver every year. Our

first visit to the show homes was the best move we have made. I remember walking around

the homes & seeing the high quality, modern design & exceptional finish. As we completed

our tour we were both really excited about the prices. Excellent value for money. We had

recently placed a deposit on a home in another city, but as soon as we saw this home decided

that there was no competition and arranged to buy our new home


We have just returned from our two week vacation in Vancouver. The trip could not have been more

perfect and all aspects of the experience exceeded our expectations. The city is meticulously

maintained. The bright and clean downtown looks as if it was finished yesterday. Everything

is ship shape at all times. The locals are polite, friendly (all have a great sense of humor) and

very attentive to all the needs of the guests. The service industry workers are professional

in every respect, anticipating all needs and accommodating all requests within their range

of capabilities. They operate as a well-oiled team. The cooks performs miracles!. All in all

this was the trip of a lifetime that far exceeded the expectations of all on board. We credit

your recommendation, and the professionalism and warmth of the city. Once again, thanks

to you for your knowledge, professionalism, follow through and focus that made all this

possible. The myth that fine dining is only found in big country house hotels is laid to rest in

Vancouver. Attentive but unobtrusive service with reasonably priced but exquisitely presented food

quality wine lists that don't have you reaching for your overdraft to enjoy the evening. And on

a cold evening there's always decent parking so just drive in and enjoy the experience. I think

Vancouver has the most innovative and exciting work. and I think they have very inspired directors,

baristas and anything you can imagine. I love this town!


We were visiting on a first date, and really enjoyed it. The food was superb when it arrived.

Overall it was a very pleasant evening with brilliant atmosphere and was very cosy. We will

definitely return soon. We enjoyed the wonderfully prepared homemade dishes. My husband

and I have been going to this town several times a year. We have organized three events there;

our wedding, and two birthdays at local restaurants. Not once have we complained about

anything. Vancouver is spectacular, the ambiance is lovely, and the service is absolutely top notch.

Not once have we been disappointed. We have recommended it to friends and family and they

loved it. The food is freshly made, and if you'd like to go to a bar there is one round the corner

from there for pub food, whereas I have found that this city is family oriented, romantic and

and warmly. The prices are very reasonable. We came for the Christmas "Traditions" and

were very pleased and impressed. We participated in the cookie decorating, ceramic paint,

sled rides, elf tuck, Santa visit. It was so festive. Vancouver really thought of everything. We will

definitely come back this time next year. Thank you for wonderful memories!


I celebrated my 70th birthday with my family in Vancouver on May 12th. Catering

for a party of eight , as well as another larger party at the same time, would be

a challenge for most, but not for this area. The welcome drinks I had requested

were ready and served upon arrival The service throughout was thoughtful

and timely. My guests have confirmed that the food and wine were excellent

throughout. A memorable evening. We will be back.


My family and I had our vacation in Vancouver last year. We had the best time! We have never

experienced anything like this before. The resort, the activities, the food, the surroundings,

and especially the hospitality – incredible! Everyone is extremely warm. All were extremely

helpful, friendly, fun, and knowledgeable! We would not have as much fun if it wasn’t for the

people! Even my 60 year old mother was able to do fun activities, imagine that!

Since it was our first time there, we thought 3-days/2-nights would be enough but because of

the countless activities, we’ll definitely stay longer next time! We could not have had a better

vacation! Vancouver was wonderful! It was clean and had everything we needed. I didn’t want to

go home but unfortunately all vacations must end. We are thankful for such a wonderful

experience and can’t wait to return next year! It is one of my all time favorite places to shop.

You never know what you will find there - all at amazing prices. Every visit is like a treasure

hunt! They everything which makes it great for finding unique gifts that are high quality

without costing a fortune. The selection is so varied that you may walk away with a new

prized possession every time. It's more like sifting through the enormous closet of a

glamorous Aunt who works in the fashion industry and has access to all of the best

mainstream and more obscure labels. I love my hair and I have never left a salon 100%

completely satisfied until I discovered the places in Vancouver. They brought out my natural

beauty of curls yet a great cut for when I want to straighten it. Perfect!


My wife and I stayed in Vancouver for a spur of the moment weekend getaway and were not

disappointed. The room was great, the staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful, the outdoor

experience was great, the Spa was wonderful (great deep tissue massage) and the prices

were reasonable. I would highly recommend this city, which has a great location which is

convenient. We will definitely stay here our next holiday. I have been going to Vancouver for

a long time and have recommended going there to friends and strangers every time they

compliment me on my hair. Last month I went in for my regular appointment feeling kind of

blah and after what seemed like magic I left feeling (and looking) fantastic. This town has a

passion for hair. It has people and a community that is refreshing and contagious. I just felt

 

compelled to write, because I have never been so happy with any service. Last Wednesday

I went to Vancouver for the first time. Having never been there before, it was a shot in the dark. I

read about it and I thought, I just have to try this place. My demands were pretty far fetched

though, as I wanted a hair cut that evening after seven. The receptionists were so lovely, they

listened to my spiels, were very helpful, and told me that I could come on in! Imagine my

delight!My glee only intensified once I got there. I love the atmosphere of the salons, and

everyone is so friendly. I instantly felt as home and it was like I’d been there forever.


Well, we definitely found a real treasure in Vancouver. We knew from our initial research

and discussion that this was the place for us. Everyone was easy to talk to, all were

knowledgeable in helping us settle in. Everyone had a genuine interest in our wellbeing. It

 

was an extraordinary pleasure to have help. They were clean, professional, accommodating,

talented, honest and always on time and polite. Our home looks absolutely beautiful. We are

very grateful in our decision with this city. Well, we definitely found a real treasure in Vancouver.

event to dress for. And I can get something pretty spectacular. And did I mention the shoes?

Great deals! Love this place.
