Your questions answered

How do you value a business?

We use a range of financial methods and market based methods to estimate the value of your business. The most common method is comparing your business to other similar businesses which have been bought or traded at certain prices publicly. The typical metric is a multiple of your maintainable earnings.

What are the most important factors for a valuation?

The most significant indicators of value for your business are:

  • Financial performance
  • Growth prospects
  • Management team
  • Barriers to entry
  • Customer mix and spread
  • Margins
  • Contracts

What makes the value increase?

Buyers want to be confident that your business isn't too risky. Some of the things that make buyers more confident include:

  • 3-year strategy and forecasting
  • More customers
  • More contracts
  • Longer durations of contracts
  • Owned intellectual property and brands
  • Strong management team
  • Growing revenue
  • Favourable market conditions
