Business Valuations

If you are involved in a merger & acquisition transaction, one of the most contentious and often difficult issues to overcome is getting the two parties to agree on what is a fair price for the business. Naturally a seller of a business normally wants to receive the highest price possible for their business, whereas a buyer is often trying to acquire a business for the lowest possible price. In order to overcome these obstacles, it’s important to have a robust approach and methodology to value a business.
