About Business Valuation

Either is possible. It depends on your timeline / objectives, who the buyer is and what their plans are with the business. By having a partial sale you are able to “pull some chips off the table” continue to run and grow the business then sell the remaining piece down the road with a clear exit and transition plan.

A transaction takes around 6 months to complete and the buyer will want to structure a transaction that meets your objectives. If that means work with you for several years great, if that means leave quickly then that is fine also. Whatever works for you and the buyer.

The buyer certainly needs them to stay and help run the business. In many instances the pay, benefits and potential for career advancement actually improves as they become part of a larger company.

The buying and consolidation will continue for at least several years, the current valuations paid is anyone’s guess.

The range of the fee varies based upon the size of the transaction. There is no retainer or monthly support fee during the process.

We only get paid if a deal is completed.Our pricing model is based on industry accepted Double Lehman scale.
