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.

Selling any business is a challenge. But it can be a rewarding one. As your trusted advisors, we’ll leverage our considerable knowledge of Australian industries and globe-spanning network of consults to design a transparent, actionable and lucrative strategy for selling your Melton business.

We can help you negotiate deals with serious buyers, ensuring you both profit from selling your Melton business.

  • We’ll begin with a detailed analysis of your operations to identify improvement opportunities and strengths to capitalise on.
  • Once your business is ready for market, we’ll dive into your global buyers’ pool to attract competitive bids for your business.
  • When you’ve settled on a buyer, we’ll assist you throughout the negotiation and ensure the process is run smoothly and in your best interest.

Our collaboration is critical for a successful sale. Book an exploratory consultation with us, and we’ll explain every stage of the process in clear, transparent language and answer any questions you may have.

Your questions answered

How much will the buyer pay?

In the first one to three months of working with you, we’ll conduct our Nash 360 Valuation Report to provide you with a fair and balanced 'view of value'. This complex process integrates a multiples approach to valuing and considering your revenue and comparable companies in your industry. It also enables us to provide insight into ways to improve the value of your business.

During this time, we will also engage with our trusted buyers and investors to glean their perspectives on pricing and terms. Ultimately, however, the current market determines the overall value of your business.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

All potential buyers must sign confidentiality agreements before any data is distributed. Typically, we break the data into three batches. In cases where your buyer is a direct competitor, we’ll withhold sensitive data until the very end. The final batch of data will include key customers, pricing, and employees.

What is involved in due diligence?

Due diligence can take one or four months, depending on your ability to access critical data, known as transaction documents. Your potential buyer will want to consider every aspect of your Melton business, from financials and contracts, customers and industry tailwinds, to management. You can find examples of the documents required and a roadmap to our process in the transaction documents section of our website. You can trust our expert team to support you and keep the process moving forward to ensure everything runs smoothly.

How long will selling my business in Melton take?

Most commonly, selling your Melton business will take six to twelve months. However, with a thoroughly planned process, as a vendor, you are more likely to receive a higher outcome. Nash Advisory’s experienced corporate advisors develop a transparent, robust business sale strategy covering all areas of the process.

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

The size of your buyer pool can be broad or very specific, depending on your business size, your management team and the industry. Potential buyers could be anyone from private investors, large trade buyers, or private equity firms. You can rest assured that we consider this entirely when constructing a plan because each buyer group acquires businesses in their own way.
