Business Valuation Analysis

Planning your retirement?

Been approached to sell your business?

Wondering how to structure and price the sale of your business to your family, partner(s), or employee(s)?

Not sure what your business is worth now and how/what to do in the future to drive the value higher?

Your preparation should start with a BDR Business Valuation Analysis

head coaching.

Knowledge is Power

Selling your business is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make:

  • How will you evaluate offers if you don’t know your company’s valuation?
  • Do you know what will drive your company's sales price higher?
  • How would you feel if you sold your business for less than it is “actually” worth?
  • What if a single 6-month performance-improvement project could have increased the sale price by $250,000 - $500,000?
  • Would you have kept the business if you knew you could double the sale price in 2-3 years’ time?

Sale planning starts with a bdr business valuation analysis

A savvy buyer wants to buy a business, not a job. They will evaluate the “Business Risk” against the “Return-on-Investment Opportunity” of your company.

Shouldn’t you do the same?

Being equally, or better-informed, strengthens your negotiating position by arming you with valuation facts, supportable performance projections, and confidence during your sale negotiation!

Selling your business is perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime event and likely the cornerstone of your retirement. Further, the HVAC industry is arguably the most complex industry of the essential trades. Make sure you are working with an industry expert when analyzing your business. Why take the risk with a generalist?
