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 do you determine the value of my Port Macquarie business?

Although the current market determines your business value, we carry out our Nash 360 Valuation Report to establish an indicative value prior to selling. As part of this multiples approach, we consider your revenue and comparable companies in your sector. 

Our expert team also engages with our trusted buyers and investors for perspective on terms and pricing early in the process. Furthermore, we also explore ways to improve the value of your business before you sell. Generally, we provide feedback on this information in the first one to three months of working together.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

All potential buyers must sign a confidentiality agreement before receiving any data. Typically, this data is broken down into three batches; the final batch includes key customers, pricing and employees. If the potential buyer is a direct competitor, we withhold sensitive information until the end of the transaction.

What documents will I need to prepare for due diligence?

Your potential buyer will want to consider all aspects of your business - financials and contracts, customers and industry tailwinds or management. Your ability to access all of this information will dictate the timeframe for due diligence, generally one to four months. To find out more details on the transaction documents required, speak with one of our experts. We are here to support you and to ensure the process runs smoothly and keeps moving forward.

How long will selling my business in Port Macquarie take?

On average, it takes between six to twelve months to sell a business. Our corporate advisors will outline all expectations and develop a thorough business sale strategy. Well-planned sales strategies yield higher outcomes for you as the vendor. Companies who rush their business sale (i.e., within three months) typically achieve a lower result.

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

The buyer pool for your business can be broad or very specific. It will depend on the size of your business, its management team and the industry you operate within. For example, buyers could be private investors, large trade buyers, or private equity firms. As each group of buyers has a different way of acquiring businesses, we will consider this accordingly.
