WHY DO PEOPLE NEED BUSINESS VALUATIONS?
The top 5 reasons to obtain a business valuation are:
1. Planning for sale
2. Obtaining financing
3. Conducting annual review
4. Enhancing value
5. Tax or legal issues
HOW DO WE ESTABLISH THE VALUE?
Ultimately, the club is worth what the market will bear. This means that the club is worth the highest price a Buyer is willing to pay!
With that said, although we look at several different valuation methodologies, there are three that generally carry the most weight. They are: (1) multiple of earnings, (2) asset-based valuation, and (3) discounted cash flow analysis. Our valuation experts will value a club with more than one of the methodologies simultaneously, comparing results among the different approaches to determine a correct valuation, all the time keeping in mind the strengths and weaknesses inherent in each approach.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET STARTED?
All clubs are different. Some clubs keep great books and records. Others keep very little. We can work around any situation. However, most often we require:
1. Three years of business tax returns or profit-and-loss statements.
2. Current year-to-date profit-and-loss statement.
3. Current balance sheet.
4. Approximate value of furniture, fixtures, equipment, and inventory.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
In most cases, we can provide the valuation within 48-72 hours of receiving the COMPLETE packet.
WHAT DO I GET?
The completed Business Valuation consists of a 15 – 20 page bound document listing the:
- Value of the business

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
