Buy/Sell & Valuation of a Business

What’s the Business Worth? – Valuation Techniques

What’s your business worth?  You’ll learn how to develop a valuation estimate that is defensible whether you are buying, selling or starting a business.  You’ll learn the pros and cons of franchising as well.  All of this is in “plain English” and based on current valuation concepts.  We will take you through the process using examples of each calculation.  Learn what makes up “value” and the steps required to maximize business valuation.  As a buyer, you will learn what steps you can take to determine the “right price”.
