- About KroeseWevers
Are you planning to sell your company or do you wish to acquire a company? In that case, a business valuation is an essential part of the sale or acquisition process. The advisers at KroeseWevers Corporate Finance have the expertise to effectively carry out a business valuation that enables you to take well-informed business decisions.
What is the actual value of a company? And how to determine that value in an appropriate manner for all parties involved? In the course of time, all entrepreneurs will have to deal with these kinds of questions. In practice there are a number of examples in which it makes sense to have a business valuation prepared:
Sale of the company
Purchase of a company
Merger(s) or (tax) restructuring
Joining or resignation of partners
Disputes between shareholders
Death of the entrepreneur
When a business valuation is made, several interests are relevant. Financial, strategic and personal interests. Therefore it is important to have expert advice to determine the value of the business, as the value that you might assign to the company often does not match the value that a purchaser of the company has in mind. In a business valuation, our advisers will include all factors that are relevant to determine the actual value of the company.
A business valuation is more than just considering the present balances on the company’s bank accounts and the annual figures of the preceding years. It is especially the future and the earnings potential of the company which is of vital importance to draw up a balanced business valuation. For this reason we take the following into consideration:
Financial history and financial forecast
Market developments and the market position of the company
Market opportunities and the options for the company
Dependencies of the company such as the board of directors, management, customers and/or suppliers
A business valuation will not only provide insight into the figures. A business valuation consists of more than mere figures. You will gain insight into the business, its market position and any growth opportunities and earnings potential. On the basis of those insights, you can determine the acquisition or selling price of a company. But you may also decide to pay more or even less based on personal or strategic considerations.
