WE WIN IN COURT

Need a Bulletproof Business Valuation?

"I greatly appreciate the work Eric did on the Valuation of my company. It stood up in court. (April 2017) The Judge soundly admonished the Chartered Business Valuator who tried to contradict Eric's valuation. If someone needs confirmation and wants to speak to me, Eric has permission to release my number." (Julian)

Second Opinion on a Questionable Valuation?

We find that most small business valuators concentrate on Asset, Market, and Income approaches developed in the  1970’s. These are generally easy to defeat in 2017 as most businesses are now made up of 50% or more in “intangible assets” these valuators neglect, or have no means, to properly measure.

25 FACTORS AFFECTING VALUE

This is the key Point: If someone is presenting or proposing a valuation without taking these factors into consideration the valuation number is likely to be misleading and almost certainly not accurate for a small business.

  • Financials
  • Return on Investment
  • How has R&D been accounted for?
  • Shareholder Agreement (if one exists)
  • Value of Employees (cost of recruitment and training as a group)
  • Client Base and Cost to Rebuild
  • Value of Supply Chain
  • Value of Distribution Network if one exists
  • Internet Presence and Use (social network)
  • Dominance if any in the Marketplace
  • Knowledge Base of Owner and Employees
  • Processes and Procedures Documentation (How well are all aspects of the company documented?)
  • Industry Averages
  • Lease Terms
  • Leasehold Improvements
  • Equipment
  • Inventory
  • Risk
  • Currency Fluctuations and Geopolitical Considerations
  • Opportunity
  • Liquidity
  • Leverage - Cost of money.  Is leverage applicable and if so at what risk?
  • Minority Interest (if applicable)
  • Special Interest Purchaser (Partners are also special interest purchasers as they have more knowledge, interest, and opportunity, with less risk than regular buyers.)
  • How well is the business/practice expected to function with changes in management? (if applicable)

Return on investment is always my first and last consideration.

Business Valuation
Save Thousands of Dollars in Unnecessary Fees!
Valuations for $1,000 - $5,000
  True Market Value is More Than 'By The Book’
Knowledge is power when you want to buy or sell a business, establish value for financing or insurance, dissolve a partnership or a marriage, or for tax planning and succession planning.

The true market value of a business is rarely what the books say. Our multifaceted, proprietary method for assessment and analysis reveals the true market value of a business - a value buyers are comfortable accepting.

Is the value of your business in dispute?
Contesting a valuation in court rarely satisfies both parties. One wins, the other loses ...and both end up with huge legal bills. Lawyers and valuators can easily cost each side $10,000 - $20,000!

We offer a better way - a more comprehensive evaluation using professional assessment tests from three different industries. Dozens of disputes have been resolved with our service. The results are ready faster and cost far less, often only $1,000 - $5,000. Best of all, the valuation is usually acceptable to all parties.

For a realistic business valuation that improves the marketability or position of your business, call me today for a free consultation.

How to value a Toronto 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 approximately one week from the time we receive the financials, but could be prepared in as little as 48 hours in extreme circumstances. 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.

Toronto
Changes have been made to the Municipal Code Chapter 19, the by-law which governs the establishment and operation of Business Improvement Areas in Toronto. In July 2011, Toronto City Council adopted amendments regarding starting a BIA, the BIA polling processes, proxy voting, board eligibility and board governance Business Improvement Areas are encouraged to keep on top of changes in the by-laws, regulations, urban design issues and other items of interest affecting their operations.

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.

Your valuation report will be delivered to you approximately one week from the time we receive the financials, but could be prepared in as little as 48 hours in extreme circumstances.

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.
