Business Valuations

Business Valuations

    You value your business. We do too.

    Business ValuationsSurveys of small businesses indicate that an owner’s retirement is dependent on the selling value of their small business, yet 82% of owners have not had a recent valuation.

    You wouldn't go your entire career without checking your 401(k) balance until six months before retirement, right? Understanding the current value of your business is vital for strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, and change in ownership.

    • SEK came highly recommended to us, and after working with them on our business valuation, it is obvious why they were proposed. The project was completed within the time frame and budget promised and was exactly what we were looking for when we engaged their services. Their meticulous research and the time spent getting to understand our company's inner-workings give me complete confidence in the quality of the final work product.
