Increasing a Company's Value

Providing Financial Advisory Services to Middle Market Companies

In a recent survey by a national accounting firm and the Exit Planning Institute, 6 out of every 7 business owners responded that they did not include “improving my company’s value” in their planning….an amazing revelation considering that for most business owners, their company represents 80% of more of their net worth, and most of them will try to sell their companies to a third party upon retirement.

For a very long time, it has been an unfortunate fact that many companies put on the market are unable to attract a buyer, and many more are sold for prices substantially less than what their owners expected. Too often an owner develops an inaccurate value

expectation (almost always too high) based upon informal discussion with other business owners, or on what they heard a competitor sold for, or on what he or she believes are “rules of thumb” for the industry. Moreover, many small to medium sized companies have conditions in their companies that if left uncorrected will make it very difficult, if not impossible, to attract a buyer.

Today, more and more companies owned by Baby Boomers are being offered for sale, and this trend will continue and intensify over the next several years. Because of this buyer’s market, it is now even more critically important to formally prepare a company for sale and enhance its value while doing so.
