Valuation Process

Among the first steps in the sale of any business is determining the value of the company to be sold. If you’re a seller or prospective seller, GBS will help you answer two key questions: What is my business worth today? What can it be worth when I sell? 

GBS will provide you with a complete assessment of your business and outline various sales options while helping you develop realistic expectations for those options. We’ll plan and implement a customized sales and marketing strategy that will create demand for your company and drive optimal results.

Sources of Information

To develop the assessment, we’ll gather information from a variety of sources, including:

  • Meetings and interviews with you and your management team

  • Prior GBS business sales and comparative business sale transaction data from private-sale databases including but not limited to: BIZCOMPS, Biz Works powered by BizBuySell, BizStats and PeerComps

  • Your business financial statements over the most recent three years including but not limited to: tax returns, profit & loss statements, income statements, balance sheets

  • ValuTrax, the business-pricing software that has become the go-to tool for business brokers nationwide
