WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS VALUATION DO YOU NEED?

• FAIR MARKET VALUE - ONGOING OPERATION
• FAIR MARKET VALUE - ASSETS IN PLACE BUT NOT OPERATING
• ORDERLY LIQUIDATION
• ORDERLY LIQUIDATION VALUE OVER TWO TO FOUR MONTHS

• INSURANCE VALUATION
Are you insured for replacement costs of rebuilding a business after a loss including Intangible Assets? Have your insurer acknowledge and accept valuation prior to buying insurance.
• Value of recruitment and training of a group of employees to the position of cohesively working together as they were prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss.
• Value of rebuilding client base to where it was prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss.
• Value of reimplementation of systems and procedures in place prior to the point of interruption, damage or loss.

• LOANS:
Banks are losing a lot of business these days to lenders who understand intangible assets. Define the value of your intangible assets. If your bank is not considering the value of your clearly defined intangibles you need to find an new lender who is better educated in your business model.
ABOUT US:

Our Valuations are generally half price or less than others. This is possible because we are more focused on Small Business Valuations and not working for Corporations.

The niche we serve is Small Business Valuations with special expertise in understanding intangible assets that are often missed as they don't show up on the Balance Sheet. In addition to Financial Statements I take into account; processes, procedures, value of supply chain, value of distribution network, knowledge base of owner and employees, value of employees (cost of recruitment and training as a group,) value of client base, Internet presence and use, documentation and risk.

The rate of return on the real Normalized Net Income is always the first and last consideration.

Value to who? The bank, the seller, the buyer; our valuations can include more than one.
How to value an Ottawa business; the valuation or appraisal is a process.  Once we have all of the information we need, via the intake conference, your valuation report will be delivered to you in approximately one week. We refer to our evaluation as a Value Statement.
WE COME AT THIS FROM FOUR DISTINCT VIEWPOINTS:

EXISTING ACCOUNTING:

The view from an accounting perspective; relying on the the numbers created by the clients' existing accountant, then finding the real "normalized net income" through a proprietary process.

RISK:
Looking from the insurance viewpoint and assessing risk to buyer.

HUMAN CAPITAL:
From the point of view of a resume broker; assessing the value of the
human capital involved in the business.


INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND PROPRIETARY PROCESSES:
Understanding, assessing and estimating the intellectual property and proprietary knowledge that is transferred with the business.  Change of ownership and management does matter.
INTAKE CONFERENCE:
This is a 2 to 3 hour conference call that can include as many stakeholders as required.
As no two businesses are the same, the questions will vary.
Below is a list of some of the areas that we will cover.

(1) Why: What is the purpose of the valuation?

(2) Who: Value with whom owning and managing the business?

  • Your current value with current ownership and management?
  • Value with a new business owner with less experience?
  • Value with buyer like you with similar business management experience?
  • Value with an upscale buyer who has the financial ability to build on what you have accomplished in your business?
  • These WHO questions make a huge difference to the final appraisal.

(3) Normalized Net Income: I must understand what questions to ask to be able to determine the real 'Normalized Net Income.' This figure is seldom what you see in your year-end accounting, which is generally calculated to determine the lowest amount of tax legally payable.

  • Owners and families are often overpaid or underpaid depending upon individual tax situations.
  • What would the owner have to pay someone to fill his/her position in the business?
  • There are about twenty more normalizing questions that must be answered and these can be different depending upon the answers given to previous questions. This is where experience counts.

(4) Leasehold Improvements: These need to be covered regardless of whether the building is leased or owned.
It is important that the right questions are asked in any comprehensive appraisal.

(5) Hard Assets: Determining fair market value.
Book value means nothing if we want to know the true value of the business.

  • Business Equipment
  • Business Inventory

(6) Intellectual Property: Copyright, Proprietary Processes, Business Operation Manuals. These are your operating manuals; the step by step instructions on how to run your business and how to train others to operate your business. This greatly affects value; positively if it you have them and negatively if you don’t have them, and much more negative if it would not be possible for you to have a practical manual that would allow for your business to continue if you were unable to function.

(7) Value of Cash Flow: This is calculated by finding the normalized net income then multiplying it by a ratio determined by risk, opportunity, and the intellectual property affecting the means to produce.

(8) Soft Assets: Do you have intellectual property that has fair market cash value outside of your business?

(9) Risk: What are the possible risks to your business?
No appraisal can be completed without properly understanding risk.

(8) Value of Cash Flow: This is calculated by finding the normalized net income then multiplying it by a ratio determined by risk, opportunity, and the intellectual property affecting the means to produce the cash flow.

Depending upon the complexity of your business, you can expect 48 hours to get a report back to you.

As you can well understand, no computer program, gross sales or other rule of thumb guessing techniques are going to be helpful for you in determining the real value of your business. In fact, these techniques could harm you. Valuation and appraisal is our full time business. We do a lot of business valuations.
