Business Valuation

Determining the Real Value of Your Business

Maybe you’re selling your business. Maybe you’re buying one. Or maybe a partner is separating. Sometimes, financial, legal and tax situations warrant a business valuation. Whatever the reason, it’s important to get the number right. Most people can’t do it themselves and require outside expertise.

Many factors—both tangible and intangible—determine the actual value of your enterprise. In addition to the obvious assets and liabilities, what is the value of the time and sweat equity you devoted to growing your business? What is the worth of your good reputation and that precious client list you spent years expanding?

Few things are more important to entrepreneurs than the value of their enterprises. Ownership interests in businesses are complex. Business valuation is not an exact science, which is why careful, objective, independent appraisals are necessary to ensure that your organization is valued reasonably and accurately.

PKHB’s team of business valuation professionals digs deep into your historical financial data to analyze operations and provide a reasoned, fully documented and defensible valuation opinion.
