Exit & Succession Planning
A closely-held business is often the most valuable asset contributing to the net worth of a business owner. A fair market value appraisal can be the critical first step in the exit planning process or transitioning a business to the next generation.
FairValue Advisors has a broad range of experience with valuation issues pertaining to exit and succession planning. A valuation can provide the owner with reasonable expectations regarding the potential price of the business to different buyers, ranging from family members, existing employees, strategic buyers or private equity firms. At FairValue Advisors, we explore these options and the potential impact on price, as well as value enhancement strategies.
We only employ valuation methods that are proven and accepted in the marketplace and in the courtroom. The appropriateness of the cost, market and income approaches to valuation are considered in each appraisal assignment.
