Determining the value of a business is essential when involved in a transaction, merger, acquisition or when preparing to sell your company.  Uncovering the true value of the organization is an important first step for many Ohio companies.

Business Appraisal Services – Ohio

Business valuations are conducted by specially trained financial professionals that evaluate various factors including financial statements, revenue, profitability, assets, liabilities, market conditions, customer base, risk factors and economic conditions. While the goal, depending on your needs, is an independent conclusion of value or calculation of value, the final report also contains important information about the strengths and weaknesses that offer clues on how to maximize the value of your business.

Beyond transactions, there are other situations when a business valuation may be required. Often, Ohio attorneys will request a valuation when an owner is involved in commercial litigation, marital disputes, estate planning and dispute resolution. Business valuations may also be needed for internal decision making to obtain financing, succession plan or obtain insurance coverage.
