One of the most common reasons for valuing a company is in preparation for a sale, merger or acquisition. Many business owners leave substantial money on the table when they sell their companies – sometimes because they do not understand what drives business value.
Our Business Valuation services are designed to complement M&A, Exit Planning, and Strategic Consulting. With NACVA Certified training we possess the formal knowledge and ongoing education required to maintain competency in the valuation profession. Our C-level business leadership experience complements these strong qualifications.
We provide Exit Planning & Consulting Services with our Client’s goals in mind. Having been over the road before, as an entrepreneur and business owner, brings a unique perspective to our consulting services. We concentrate on listening to understand what the Client is saying,as we work together with a focus on developing solutions in line with the Client’s goals. A typical consulting assignment may include business turnaround, marketing channel development, or end-game planning. Throughout the process, confidentiality is planned and respected.
The decision to sell your business can be the most important decision of your life. Turning your operation into cash is a complex affair involving hundreds of potential variables.
At CalWest Commercial, we are selective in our listing engagements representing clients with positive track records, and demonstrated business success. More importantly we represent owners who wish to see ongoing business success under the direction and care of a new owner.
Depending upon the Client's Business and purpose, a Broker's Opinion of Value model may be best suited for establishing a probable selling price or price range. Taking into account the three valuation approaches (Asset, Market, and Income) and developing a probable selling price or price range can be helpful in certain circumstances from the Client's point of view. At CalWest Commercial we offer this method to Client's when it makes logical sense given the subject business.
While the bulk of our work is in support of M&A clients, we do offer and provide real estate services to Clients. At CalWest Commercial we maintain strong relationships in the local real estate market and work regularly with other agents in support of the Client's needs.
