The valuation process typically takes 30-60 days and consists of the following steps:
- To start, we need three years of financial statements or tax returns
- A financial analyst will then contact the client and review the additional information we need including:
a) Operational (products, services, manufacturing process, geographic reach, competition, barriers to entry, facility, employee base, etc.)
b) Financial (recasting for one time expenses, management perks, non-operational expenses, fiar market salaries, fair market value of fixed assets, etc)
- The analyst will collect the data via email and interviews over the phone
- The analyst will review recast financial statements with client and develop a 5 year pro forma including footnotes for historical and projected financials.
