Selling a business is best thought of as a process, rather than an event. With the knowledge of things that may impact valuation and deal structure, clients will be more prepared to align their day to day decision making with exit planning strategies.  Don’t wait until it’s too late to begin having these important conversations. For Advisors from all disciplines.


What will be covered:

  1. Analyzing Financial Statements: 
  2. Definition of Value – Fair Market Value vs. Fair Value
  3. Price vs. Value
  4. Case Studies:
    1. Valuation of a Law Firm for a Deemed Disposition (i.e., Departure Tax);
    2. Valuation of an Accounting Firm (i.e., Acquisition Financing);
    3. Valuation of a Grocery Store for a Deemed Disposition (i.e., Date of Death);
    4. Valuation of a Distributor (i.e., Estate Freeze); and
    5. Valuation of a Doctor’s Office (i.e., Acquisition & Capital raise).
