Business Valuation

The goals for each business valuation are different, depending on the situation. Many factors contribute to the development of a realistic value, but to deliver the most accurate valuation, a thorough understanding of the various methods of analysis and industry trends is essential. Whether you’re involved in a buy or sell opportunity, developing a succession plan, or engaged in divorce proceedings, a complete and accurate understanding of the value of your business will allow you to make informed, strategic decisions.

Business Valuation Experience

At Suttle & Stalnaker, PLLC we have over 20 years of experience helping small to mid-sized closely-held businesses, partnerships, and corporations determine their value during times of gift and estate planning, transition to family members or partners, disputes and buyouts, expansion, mergers and acquisitions, and divorce. A valuation is a helpful resource even before one of these scenarios arise. With the findings we deliver, businesses can identify areas of improvement and position their business to attract potential buyers.  Our team of Certified Valuation Analysts (CVA) go beyond the standard checklist by accounting for special considerations, local economies and industry trends that may affect the outcome of the valuation. The insights provided from our industry research and benchmarking allow our clients to gauge themselves among their peers and make adjustments and improvements before the valuation is even complete.
