Business valuations — how it works

The road to achieving the best sales outcome

Valuing a business is a complex process. A business valuation from Nash Advisory can give you an understanding of what you stand to gain. Here's how our analysis process works:

  • We identify key areas of strength and weakness, and scope out areas for improvement
  • We compare your business to others in the market along with similar sales results to gauge your relative strength
  • We fully explain how the results of this analysis can impact your valuation and saleability

The first step is to organise a free initial consultation with our team. Fill in the form and we will contact you to arrange a discovery call.

Your questions answered

What is involved in due diligence?

Your buyer will want to take a detailed look at all aspects of your Hobart business - financials, contracts, customers, industry tailwinds, management etc. Due diligence takes anywhere from one month to four months, depending on your ability to access key data. Nash’s expert team will ensure this process runs smoothly and moves forward on time.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

We ensure all potential buyers sign confidentiality agreements. If the buyer is one of your direct competitors, we withhold sensitive information until the end of the transaction. As a rule, we divide data distribution into three batches. The final batch includes key customers, pricing and employees.

How much will the buyer pay, and how long will they take?

The current market will dictate the value of your business. We will give you a 'view of value' with our Nash 360 Valuation Report. In addition, we engage trusted buyers and investors in the first one to three months of the process to get an indication of price and terms.

Who are the likely buyers when selling my business in Hobart?

The size of your buyer pool can be quite broad or very specific. It depends on the size of your Hobart business, its management team, and the industry. For example, buyers may range from private investors, large trade buyers, or private equity firms. We’ll modify our plan accordingly.

How long does the process take to sell my business in Hobart?

In general, it takes six to twelve months to sell a business. However, by having a well-planned process, you are more likely to see higher outcomes for you, the vendor. At Nash Advisory, we consolidate all key expectations and develop a transparent, sound business sale strategy to ensure we cover all areas of the process.
