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?

Potential buyers will want to consider all components of your Sunshine Coast business. Due diligence takes one to four months, depending on your ability to access critical data. This process includes your financials, contracts, customers, industry tailwinds, and management. We ensure everything keeps moving forward and runs smoothly.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

All potential buyers must sign confidentially agreements before we distribute any information. Typically, we segment data into three batches, with the final batch containing the most sensitive data, such as key customers, pricing and employees. You can trust Nash Advisory to keep all your data safe throughout the process.

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

The market ultimately determines the overall value of your business. However, our Nash 360 Valuation Report lets us accurately estimate the 'view of value'.

Additionally, we engage with trusted buyers and investors in the first one to three months of working with our expert team.

Who are the likely buyers when selling my business in Sunshine Coast?

Your buyer pool depends on several factors, including the size of your business, management team, and industry. Buyers could be private equity firms, private investors or large trade buyers. Each group use different methods to acquire businesses. Thus we will tailor our approach according to those best suited to the nature of your company.

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

It most commonly takes between six months and a year to sell a business. A thoroughly planned process results in higher vendor outcomes and companies wishing to sell their business quickly (i.e. within three months) generally glean lower results. Again, you can trust Nash Advisory to develop a solid and transparent sales strategy that covers every aspect.
