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

How much is a buyer likely to pay?

Ultimately, the market will determine your overall business value. Our Nash 360 Valuation Report will give you a fair and balanced 'view of value’. We use various analyses — including the multiples approach — to value your business. We consider various components, such as your revenue and the comparable companies in your industry. Additionally, within the first one to three months of working with us, we will seek feedback from trusted buyers and investors on pricing and deal terms.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

Yes. All potential buyers must sign a confidentiality agreement before accessing any information. We break your data into three batches, with the final batch including key customers, pricing, and employees. If the buyer is a direct competitor, we withhold sensitive information until the end of the process.

What is involved in due diligence?

Due diligence takes one to four months, depending on your ability to access critical business data. Potential buyers will want to examine every aspect of your business, including financials, contracts, customers, industry tailwinds, and management personnel. You must compile a list of transaction documents with which we can field such requests. For more information, speak with one of our specialist corporate advisors, or for a visual overview, see our roadmap.

How long does selling my business in Port Douglas take?

It generally takes six to twelve months to sell a business. As the vendor, you are more likely to achieve a higher transaction outcome by preparing a detailed business sale strategy. We outline all key expectations and ensure all areas of the process are covered.

Who are the likely buyers when selling my business in Port Douglas?

Your buyer pool depends on the size of your business, management team and industry. For example, buyers of your business could be private investors, large trade buyers, or private equity firms. Importantly, each buyer group acquires companies differently, which is an important consideration we take into account when designing your custom sale strategy.
