As a small business owner, it is essential for you to know and understand the exact value of your business. Merely guessing at its value could negatively impact your company when it comes time to sell, plan for retirement, or make other changes.

That’s where Raincatcher can help! We offer two types of business valuations— estimate valuations and certified valuations—to help support business owners like you.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ESTIMATE BUSINESS VALUATION AND CERTIFIED BUSINESS VALUATION?

ESTIMATE BUSINESS VALUATION

As its name implies, an estimate business valuation is just an estimation of a business’s value. Its purpose is to provide you with a range of value that may help you determine if your expectations of value are aligned with current market conditions. We are happy to offer this option as a faster, less detailed, and free alternative to our certified business valuation. Please be aware that this no-cost estimate will be calculated using only the financial information you provide.

RAINCATCHER OPINION OF VALUE

A Raincatcher Opinion of Value is a report that includes the following information:

A proprietary valuation of your business, based on your specific information and a broker’s analysis of your business, its financials, the industry, and comparable market sales

A range of suggested prices for your business, highlights of the eight drivers of your company’s value as well as industry trends, risks and forecasting.

CERTIFIED BUSINESS VALUATION

Simply put, a certified valuation is the highest standard of valuation. It is prepared by a certified, accredited valuation appraiser who gathers, analyzes, and reports on your business financials. This unbiased process removes any potential subjectivity and reflects your company’s true worth.
