Business Valuations

While most businesses owners pour their heart and soul into building the value of their business, knowing what that value is can be a tricky proposition. Knowing the value of an enterprise may not be essential to day to day management, but there are many events that may require a business owner to get an accurate assessment of the value of a business. Estate planning, mergers and acquisitions, divorce or selling a business necessitate understanding the value of a business.

Determining the value of a business is a complex process that requires knowledge of multiple disciplines and careful analysis of both tangible and intangible assets.  Our business valuation team is made up of Certified Public Accountants who have also added designations such as Certified Valuation Analyst or Accredited in Business Valuations.  This broad skill set gives them the expertise needed to provide business appraisal services to our valued clients.

The KerberRose business valuation team has the expertise and experience to help you determine and understand the value of your business.  We can also provide information that can help identify the key drivers of value, both positive and negative, allowing management to focus their efforts in the most meaningful areas of the business.

While many events may necessitate a business valuation, periodic valuations can also be a valuable measuring tool to help management determine the overall success of the organization. Some of the most common reasons to consider a business valuation include:

  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Allocation of Purchase Price
  • Estate & Gift Taxes
  • Divorce
  • Equity Contributions
  • Impairment of Goodwill
  • Succession Planning
  • Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Litigation Support
  • Internal Management Use
