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 long does the process take to sell my business?

Selling a business will generally take between 6 and 12 months. A well planned process should result in a higher outcome for the vendor. Companies who wish to sell their business quickly (i.e within the next 3 months) will typically get a lower result. We aim to set out all expectations and have a clear business sale strategy so all areas of the process can be covered.

Who are the likely buyers when selling my business?

The buyer pool can be very broad, or quite specific. This usually depends on the size of your business, the management team, and the industry. The buyers could be private investors, large trade buyers, or private equity firms. Each buyer groups acquires businesses in different ways.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

We always ensure that buyers sign confidentiality agreements. When the buyer is a direct competitor, we withhold sensitive information until the end of the transaction. We typically break up the data provided into 3 batches; with the final batch including key customers, pricing and employees.

What is involved in due diligence?

A buyer will want to consider all aspects of your business—financials, contracts, customers, industry tailwinds, and management, to name just a few. Diligence can take as little as one months or up to four months depending on your ability to access key data. Our job is to push the process forward an ensure diligence runs smoothly.

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

The market will determine the value of a business. However, we aim to provide a 'view of value' by way of our Nash 360 Valuation Report. In addition to this, we engage with our trusted buyers and investors early in the process to get an indication of price and terms. We can do this within the first one to three months of the process.
