Business Valuation – A Blueprint for Growth

Tis the season for reviewing last year’s financial results and budgeting for this year.  What is a main goal for closely-held business owners in analyzing historical results and predicting future outcomes: assessing progress and growth.

What can you focus on to increase the value of your business?  A business valuation can be a blueprint for growth.  A solid valuation is built on more than just the financial statements.  Whether you need a full-scale valuation or you are looking for a “back of the napkin” analysis, the basic questions are consistent and include, but are not limited to:

  1. Which valuation methods and approaches are appropriate for your business?
  2. What is your company’s history and management depth?
  3. What are your company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats?
  4. Where does your company fit in the industry and how does it compare to industry trends?
  5. What are the historical financial results and sustainable future levels?
  6. Are the revenue, expense, growth assumptions reasonable and sustainable?

A written valuation analysis (full-scale or “back of the napkin”) can establish a blueprint for growth.  Each business is different and the experts at Clarus Partners are skilled at asking the right questions.  Contact Courtney Sparks White at or 614-545-9100 x 11  to help you draft a workable blueprint for growth.
