Providing Superior, Defendable Valuations
Few things are more important to business owners than the value of their business. Objective valuation can make the difference between loss or gain, success, or failure. While business valuation is not an exact science, it is based on judgment, experience, and relevant information.
The experts at Bowers have a depth of knowledge of key value indicators and an understanding of market realities. Areas of experience include:
When a business files for bankruptcy, the process involves providing a lot of financial information and, in most cases, a valuation.
When a partnership comes to an end, a business valuation allows the partners to identify the value and split it accordingly.
In a buyout situation, a business valuation assists with shareholder retirements, shareholder disputes, etc.
This includes a business transfer to children, transfer to key employees and reducing estate exposure both at the Federal and State levels.
A business valuation is needed for loan originations, SBA loans and shareholder financed buyouts.
Knowing the value of a business makes it easier to transfer to children and/or key employees.
In a divorce situation, a business valuation helps with marital asset split-ups; spousal buyout; and support/alimony issues.
