Ask the owner of a privately-held business about what the value of his company is, and chances are he would give you an abstract answer, or an inflated and exaggerated figure- both taking into account all the sacrifices and hard work he has put in to build the company. Understandable, perhaps, but the truth is most business owners have no idea what their fair market value really is. They can be easily swept away by the sentimental component of building the business.
To ground the fair economic value of the business based on academically validated methods with industry-specific valuation factors, a business valuation is essential. This is the only way to determine the true worth of your business, instead of resorting to guesswork which could have disastrous consequences for your company, and ultimately, you.
Ideally, a business valuation is undertaken annually. Think of it as your company’s version of an annual medical checkup. Your company needs to undergo a series of intensive review and scrutiny to find out how healthy it is. Going through the daily motions of the business, you can easily overlook minute details of your company which can affect the over-all value of the business.
