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, procure a loan, build value, or even enter into divorce proceedings.

Our Certified Valuations and Opinions of Value are performed by credentialed analysts who take the time to understand your business, its financials, industry trends, cash flow, and risk, and will help you understand how broader economic trends affect you.

We work collaboratively with your business to establish a scope and methodology that produces a supportable, high-quality valuation report in a timely manner.

Empower yourself by knowing where your business stands today.

CERTIFIED BUSINESS VALUATIONS

CONCLUSION OF VALUE

A Conclusion of Value is the type of valuation required for SBA Loans, ESOP’s, lender financing, and estate and gift filings.

In a Conclusion of Value, your Raincatcher analyst will perform a full valuation and produce a formal business valuation report. The report is extensive and incorporates complex business and financial reviews, not only of the company itself but also economic and industry context for the past and foreseeable future, based on the valuation date. Independent information is obtained including data from third parties, and the analyst performs a thorough review of every available element of the business.

Three valuation methods -- asset-based, income-based, and market-based -- are considered. The Conclusion of Value is the most extensive and strictly complies with rigorous valuation standards.

CALCULATION OF VALUE

Though more limited in scope than the Conclusion of Value, a Calculation of Value can be an excellent resource for strategic planning, transaction planning, or out-of-court settlement negotiations.

You and your Raincatcher financial analyst will discuss and agree on the best valuation method to create a concise report on the state of your company in a cost-effective manner.
