What’s My Business Worth?

For the vast majority of business owners, the value of their closely held company is their largest asset. When preparing a personal financial statement it’s easy to identify the value of your home, savings accounts, marketable securities, and retirement accounts. But what is your business worth? Is your company worth book value, a multiple of cash flow, a factor of revenue, or something altogether different?

Many factors influence the value of your business. Brady Ware Capital’s experience allows us to determine how both buyers and sellers interpret and value these factors:

  • Revenue and Cash Flow size
  • Cash Flow Margin
  • Consistency and Predictability of Earnings
  • Recurring Revenue
  • Growth Opportunities and Scalability
  • Depth of Management Team
  • Industry Dynamics
  • Quality of Financial Information
  • Customer Concentrations
  • Relationship with Key Suppliers

Establishing an accurate value for your business is a critical step in your strategic planning. It’s also an important first step in understanding your exit strategies as part of your overall retirement goal.
