How to Value or Appraise a business for sale - or any other purpose

1800 606 0310

What is the value of the employees to your business? - What is the value of your clientele?

We can answer these questions in our valuation.

This opportunity is no longer available for sale. 

You may wish to sell your business using this space. 

New offer as of April 15, 2017

Pay for the valuation and your advertising (until sold) is included at no extra charge. 


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
  • Currency Fluctuations and Geopolitical Considerations
  • 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

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)

If you think the water you are drinking is just H2O, think again!

According to some studies, an astonishing 75,000 chemical compounds have been found in our water, yet the EPA has established enforceable safety standards for only 87. Many of these chemicals are potentially harmful and can spawn health problems. According to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, nearly one million people get sick from drinking contaminated water each year with about 1,000 cases tragically ending in death.

Often using outdated technology, many municipalities simply weren’t built to handle the influx of modern-day contaminants. A host of pollutants such as pesticides, herbicides, and toxic waste from landfills, chemical and oil spills; acid rain and more find their way into our water supplies.

possible sources of water contamination


Most often this water is treated with chlorine or chloramines to control bacterial growth, which, according to some health experts, may also contribute to illness.

Even if the water that leaves the treatment plants meets EPA minimum safety standards, health threats don’t stop there. The water may pass through unsafe water lines that recontaminate it on the way to your home.

Examine your pipes and those of water distribution systems and you’ll find the insides of some of these pipes caked with mineral, biological and chemical deposits. In some cases the pipes themselves may leach copper and lead! Another threat lurking inside older water pipes is bio-film, composed of layers of bacteria that can harbor pathogens like E. coli.

And don’t think well water is any safer because ground water pollutants may also seep into that source. Add to that the chlorine and other chemicals commonly used to treat well water, and you have drinking and cooking water that is chemically altered.

The sad truth is harmful chemicals compromise our water supply. EPA standards require water treatment plants to reduce certain contaminants. Annual reports issued by the EPA for 2002 indicate that there were 80,635 documented violations nationwide. When violations occur, “boil water” alerts are issued but, by then, you may have already consumed contaminated water.

You have to ask yourself the question, “Over the course of my life, how will these chemicals and trace pollutants affect my health and that of my family?” Consider what this means if, over the course of your life, you drink approximately 13,000 gallons of water. There could be undetected contaminants in each glass you drink having a cumulative affect on your health for the worse. That’s why it’s so important you make doubly sure the water you drink is pure. You can take control of your water quality today and enjoy peace of mind.

IT is easy to get caught up in the idea that we are selling Dol-Fyn Distillers, Reverse Osmosis or Water Refiners.  This IS only partly true; in fact what we are selling is “Pure Water and Quality of Life”.

There are two purposes for water in every home even though they are both delivered through one pipe.  99% of the water that enters our home is for working water; bathing, laundry, dishes, floors, toilets, etc.  Only 1% of our water is used for human consumption, drinking or cooking.  These two waters are treated differently because of the volumes required, because the amount used for human consumption is relatively small, we can afford to serve virtually pure water for this purpose.  The only two ways that are recognized as being economically capable of purifying water are Reverse Osmosis and Distillation



Working water is often not free of chemicals but should be free from hard minerals.  The “hardness of the water, iron, calcium, magnesium and other grunge in the water cause deterioration of plumbing and fixtures, clothes and everything the water touches.  In fact, the destruction is such that cleaning up the working water will pay for itself in anywhere from 5 to 10 years, after which the equipment is working for you virtually free.



The Hydrotech 5600 MI Conditioner Series comes with the industry standard Econominder control, which regenerates only after a preset volume of water has passed through the system.


  • Models from 0.75 to 3.0 cubic feet of resin
  • Meter initiated regeneration, down flow brining
  • Gallon indicator counts down volume of soft water remaining
  • Adjustable salt setting cam
  • Bypass included with ¾” MNPT Connections
  • Heavy Duty mineral tank
  • Polyethylene Brine tank includes air check and safety float
  • Electrical: 120V/60HzMI Conditioner Series



Most people receive their water from one of 2 sources.  It will be either surface water; from rivers, dugouts etc., or ground water from wells or springs.  It may be treated or untreated and any one or combination of several treatments may in be in effect.   Municipally treated water may originate as river, reservoir or well water.

Due to our standard of living, we as mankind have invented over 70,000 chemicals since the beginning of World War II.  Many of these were developed specifically to kill; insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, etc.  Many others are considered relatively harmless.  Regardless of how they are considered, they are all other there in our ecosystem.  A little bit of everything ends up in our water.  Most are impossible to remove entirely and we are forced as a society to place acceptable limits on various chemicals.  Some are very stringent because ingesting of even minute doses is immediately detrimental to our health, sometimes fatal.  With others, because there is no absolute proof of harm, the guidelines are more liberal, often put in place so as not it inconvenience the water treatment process rather than to protect our health.  Murphy’s law is true with H2o if it’s possible to get in the water it will !!

We have become very tolerant as a society.  We accept anyone or anything as being all right without absolute proof to the contrary.  However, we do not believe that chemicals deserve this consideration.  Unlike an accused criminal, chemicals must not be considered innocent until proven guilty”

The Dol-Fyn Distiller operates like nature’s hydrologic cycle.  Water that’s clean, safe and naturally dependable




The Distiller produces purified water by using the oldest, most effective method of water treatment–steam distillation.  When the Distiller is operating, the water temperature rises to 100 Celsius, killing bacteria, cysts, and viruses that may be present.


  1. Boiling Water converts to steam
  2. It rises and leaves behind dead microbes, dissolved solids, salts, heavy metals and other substances
  3. Steam is then cooled in the stainless steel condenser
  4. Turning it into purified water.  Distilled water percolates through a final polishing coconut shell carbon filter
  5. Enhance quality by adsorption of VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  6. Then is collected in a Glass Collection/Storage Container

Area Information

My wife and I stayed in Standard 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 Standard 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 Standard 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.

I have had the opportunity to share my experience in Standard 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 Standard 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

My family and I had our vacation in Standard 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! Standard 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 Standard. They brought out my natural

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

My husband and I will never forget our week in Standard. One of the best vacations ever.

We were surrounded with everything we need. Essentials were very close, activities for

every member of the family, the steakhouse was awesome. The rooms and the service was

spectacular We’re very much looking forward to our 2012 vacation. I really cannot tell you

enough about this place. It is a vacation destination that everyone has to experience. Make the

trip – it will be worth your while. By the way, the Spa experience was breathtaking. I have

trusted Standard since my adolescence. Despite all the makeup that was applied on my face for

the past fifteen years, with the help of this town and their techniques, I could still maintain

the quality of my skin, which is itself a small miracle. They have always been well-informed

about the treatments available on the market while ensuring their quality and effectiveness.

Finding a place with the same philosophy as mine seemed to be the most difficult task. A

place where beauty is not “showy”, but rather a place where real deep beauty is encouraged

and where long-term results are a priority. With this city, I finally found a home. I am so

thankful with the assistance I got for my storage needs. It has been helpful to start moving

things in little by little and it's nice to know that I will have all this time without worrying

about all of my stuff! I really appreciated the pleasant demeanor and great customer service. I

will certainly recommend Standard to everyone I know.

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. Standard 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. Standard really thought of everything. We will

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

Well, we definitely found a real treasure in Standard. 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 Standard.

shop. High-end couture designers at rock bottom prices. I go there every time I have a special

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

Great deals! Love this place.

We have just returned from our two week vacation in Standard. 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

Standard. 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

Standard 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!
