We provide No Charge No Obligation business evaluations. The purpose of an evaluation is to analyze the business to enable us to provide a Broker’s Opinion of Value to include: helping the seller understand how the value is derived, an estimate of the net proceeds (which isn’t necessarily the business selling price), to identify obstacles to a successful sale and to possibly identify opportunities to increase the value of the business. In our experience, this is usually a very enlightening experience for small business owners. Often they learn things about their business that they didn’t necessarily fully understand.
