Business Valuation

A business valuation is a general process of determining the economic value of a whole business or a company unit. Business valuation can be used to determine the fair value of a business for a variety of reasons, including the sale of all or a portion of the entity, to merge and acquire another company, to close the business or even in divorce cases. Estimating the fair value of a business is an art and a science. There are several formal models that can be used but selecting the right one and then applying the appropriate inputs can be somewhat subjective because it involves estimating the value of intangible assets, trade secrets and goodwill or brand recognition. The Clark Firm will analyze:

  • Company Financial Statements
  • Company Management
  • Capital Structure
  • Future Earnings Potential

In addition to a forensic analysis of the data, the Clark Firm will work with the client (or his CPA) to perform any accounting adjustments or corrections needed to fully disclose the true value of the business.

Depending on the goals of the business and our analysis of the company, we will apply one of the following business valuation methods to ensure our clients the best and most accurate determination of company value.

  • Market Capitalization
  • Times Revenue Method
  • Earnings Multiplier
  • Discounted Cash Flow Method
