Infact, 95% of all businesses are in this category, typically they employ fewer than 10 people and are affordable by most aspiring individual business owners. The key to knowing how these businesses are valued lies in what those aspiring buyers see in the business. Usually they expect to work in the business and earn both the business profit and owner’s wages. We call this the buy a job market. In another video we’ve suggested that the appropriate profit measure for these businesses is Net Profit before proprietors’ wages, which may be one or more working owners. In this video we explain valuing a small business in the buy a job market. If you found this video helpful, we’d appreciate a share or a thumbsup!

What's My Business Worth? Easy Steps to Valuing a Business
 
04:42
A short video on a simple way to determine the value of a business. Hi, I'm here on the bay front in beautiful St. Augustine, Fl. I'm a "business broker" and I work with buyers from all over the world to help them find the business that's just right for them and I work with business owners to help them find an ideal buyer for their business. Today I want to talk with you about how we can work together to find the fair market "value of your business" in today's market. When I talk with business owners I often ask, have you ever thought about "selling your business" and it's interesting how often I get same response and that is, "I think about it every day." Perhaps you've thought about selling your business, either to retire, to relocate or to take on an entirely new challenge. I can't help you decide when the time is right for you to sell your business, but we work together to determine the approximate "value of your business" in today's marketplace. And that basically comes down to three very simple factors: the nature of your business, the annual revenues of your business and seller's discretionary earnings. If I lost you on that last point -- seller's discretionary earnings -- don't despair We're going to walk through an example to show you exactly how those are determined. Seller's discretionary earnings sounds like a complicated term, in fact some brokers use the term adjusted net, some use SDE, I prefer the term owner benefits. It really refers to the net profit of loss of a business with certain add backs, such as amortization, depreciation, compensation to the owner, a health insurance plan, a car payment even a cell phone payment. Any expenses that are a benefit to you as an owner are added back to determine total owner benefits. The easiest way to determine the value of your business is to compare it to other similar businesses that have sold. It's very similar to what a residential real estate agent might do in preparing comps if you decided to sell your home. When we talk about comparing your business to other similar businesses that have sold I use information from the database of the Business Brokers of Florida. We have information on thousands of "business sales." For instance if we look in our database for information on pizza stores that have sold I can do a search and I find 241 pizza stores that have sold in Florida. And I can sort this information by the sold price, the annual revenues or by the owner benefits. And that way I can narrow the results to closely mirror those of your business. Okay, let's walk through an example of how we determine an approximate value in today's market. We work with tax returns, profit and loss statements and other financial records. Tax returns are the highest and best evidence and I know you'll find this shocking, but not all business owners report all income on their tax returns. But, for an example, let's say you have a pizza shop with $500,000 in annual revenue. Let's say that this pizzeria had a tax return profit of $30,000, but that doesn't represent the total owner benefits. I'd make several add backs. For instance, if the owner was paid $30,000 and the business had $15,000 in depreciation, add perhaps another $15,000 for amortization. Then I'd look for other common add backs, such as meals and entertainment, health insurance, a car payment or a cell phone bill. Whatever businesses expenses benefit the owner we add back. So you can see that when we total these, it's easy to have owner benefits of more than $100,000. Our Business Brokers of Florida database reveals pizza shops in this range sold for about 1.4 times owner benefits. This would put the value of our example at about $150,000. Once we determine your owner benefits I can provide you with the lowest, highest and average prices paid for businesses like yours with similar revenues and owner benefits. Pricing your business correctly is key to generating buyer interest. Buyers shy away from businesses that are over priced. If you'd like to work with me to establish an opinion of value on your business I look forward to working with you. Simply drop me an email, please note there are to H's in the middle of this address or give me a call. I look forward to working with you.

If You Like My Free Videos, Support Me at https://www.patreon.com/MBAbull Let's say you have a lemonade stand: It has a table worth $10, a pitcher worth $5, and drinking glasses worth $5... So a total of $20. If someone offers you $21 to buy your lemonade business, what would you say? Maybe you'll say "yes" because its assets are worth only $20 But what if... your lemonade business is safely and consistently earning you a net profit or cashflow of $100/year? Would you still sell it for $21? Of course not! Why? You will get $21, but you will lose $100 every year, forever. As financial managers, we tend to value a business based on the value of its earnings...

How To Figure Out the Value of a Company for Sale
 
11:02
http://cenkuslaw.com Both sellers and buyers often ask me how to properly value a company for sale. Today we'll look at valuing a company in the lower-middle market, or a business worth up to $25 million. You'll often see discounted cash flow, comparable company analysis and EBITDA quoted as metrics by which to value a company, but those are really only practical for larger, publically traded companies. Comparable transaction analysis is a much more reliable metric for businesses in the lower-middle market range. In order equalize the companies being compared, we look at something called Seller Discretionary Earnings (SDE). In this video, I dive into these metrics and how we utilize them to value the businesses I assist in the sale and purchase of as a corporate attorney and business broker. _____________________________________________ For a deeper dive into and other legal issues vital to the success of your deals and your business, visit me at: http://www.cenkuslaw.com Just starting up?

How to Value a Company in 3 Easy Steps - Valuing a Business Valuation Methods Capital Budgeting
 
09:40
Clicked here http://www.MBAbullshit.com/ and OMG wow! I'm SHOCKED how easy.. Just for instance I possessed a company comprising of a neighborhood store. To put together that center, I invested $1,000 one year ago on apparatus along with other assets. The equipment in addition to other assets have depreciated by 10% in a single year, so now they're valued at only $900 inside the accounting books. In case I was going to make an effort to offer you this company, what amount would an accountant value it? Relatively easy! $900. The cost of the whole set of assets (less liabilities, if any) can give accountants the "book value" of a typical organization, and such is systematically how accountants observe the worth of an enterprise or company. (We employ the use of the word "book" because the worth of the assets are penned within the company's accounting "books.") http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pCXd4i7DM0 However, imagine this unique company is earning a juicy cash income of $2,000 annually. You would be landing a mighty incredible deal in the event I sold it to you for just $900, right? I, on the flip side, might be taking out a pretty sour pact in the event I offered it to you for just $900, on the grounds that as a result I will take $900 but I will shed $2,000 per annum! Due to this, business directors (dissimilar to accountants), don't make use of merely a company's book value when assessing the value of an organization.So how do they see how much it really is worth? To replace utilizing a business' books or even net worth (the market price of the firm's assets minus the business enterprise's liabilities), financial managers opt to source enterprise worth on how much money it gets in relation to cash flow (real cash acquired... contrary to only "net income" that may not generally be in the format of cash). Basically, a company making $1,000 "free cash flow" monthly having assets worth a very small $1 would remain to be worth a great deal more versus a larger company with substantial assets of $500 in the event the humongous company is attaining only $1 yearly.So far, how do we achieve the exact value of your business? The simplest way would be to mainly look for the net present value of the total amount of long run "free cash flows" (cash inflow less cash outflow).Needless to say, you will come across much more sophisticated formulas to find the value of a company (which you wouldn't genuinely need to learn in detail, since there are numerous gratis calculators on the web), but practically all of such formulas are in a way driven by net present value of cash flows, plus they are likely to take into consideration a few factors for example growth level, intrinsic risk of the company, plus others.

Selling your business for the best price - In a nutshell

How to sell your business for the best price - In a nutshell - expert advice from Jerry Davison at The Mill Consultancy Ltd http://in.a-nut.sh/TheMillConsultancy Don't miss new In a nutshell videos... subscribe by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=BEInaNutshell Find out more about this video... ........................................ How to sell your business for the best price - In a nutshell. Let's start with the assumption that you look for a trade buyer, rather than some outside investor. A trade buyer will almost certainly pay a better price. They understand your market and crucially, the risks, really well. That gives them more confidence to do a good deal. Identifying potential buyers is of course a key part of your exit strategy. You need to think hard about why another company will see your company as a strategic fit with their business. Most acquisitions are a short cut to grow the buyer's own business. Sometimes they're done simply to protect a key source of supply that might otherwise be acquired by one of their competitors. Analyse and list those things in your business that have real strategic value. For example: - your brand name and patents - key technologies - your customer database - products or services that can fill a gap in someone else's offering - an excellent management team Rather than just preparing some form of information memorandum and advertising on a business broker website like most people do, you need to spend time developing contacts that may lead you to the buyer who will make you a premium offer over and above what's called the fair market value. The reason that getting the best price may take some time is because part of your strategy is to develop a stronger presence in your industry through PR and attendance at conferences and so on. And don't forget to think about foreign companies that might be interested in expanding in the UK. An experienced corporate finance adviser can help you with the exit strategy planning, to ensure you get the maximum price for your business. ........................................

How much is my business worth?   Pricing a Business for Sale
 
02:18
http://www.1800bizbroker.com The value of your business depends on many factors, from the current state of the economy to your business’s balance sheet. Three of the most common ways to determine the value of a business are asset-based valuations, earnings value approaches, and market based valuations. Asset-based approach business valuation methods total up all of the investments in the business. Asset-based business valuations can be done on a going concern or on a liquidation basis • A going concern asset-based approach lists the business net balance sheet value of its assets and subtracts the value of its liabilities. • A liquidation asset-based approach determines the net cash that would be received if all assets were sold and liabilities paid off. Earnings value approach business valuation methods are predicated on the idea that a business's true value lies in its ability to produce cash in the future. You then apply a capitalization factor or some multiple of earnings to get to a final sales price. With this approach, you determine an expected level of cash flow for the company using a company's record of past earnings. You then normalize the earnings for unusual revenue or expenses, add back any seller's discretionary expenses, and then multiply the expected normalized cash flows by a capitalization factor or earnings multiple. So what capitalization factor or earnings multiple do you use? This is highly dependent on the industry of the business, its strength in the market, and its future prospects. Market value approaches to a business valuation attempt to establish the value of your business by comparing your business to similar businesses that have recently sold. Obviously, this method is only going to work well if there are a sufficient number of similar businesses to compare. Sometimes the best way to set the asking price of a business is to use a combination of business valuation methods. Setting the price which you will list your business for sale will have a huge impact of the final value you will ultimately receive. You want to avoid leaving any money on the table, while balancing overpricing the business and having it become a stale listing.

How to Sell Your Business - 7 Tragic Mistakes Business Sellers Make
 
03:16
There are seven mistakes frequently made by business sellers that can lead to a failed transaction or reduced sale price. Knowing these pitfalls in advance will increase your chances of achieving a successful sale. Mistake #1: Poor recordkeeping. As part of the due diligence process, business buyers will inspect your financial records. If bank financing is involved, the bank will require all of your financial records as well. Not having good records will deter many potential buyers, and possibly make your business hard to finance. Mistake #2: Selling the business when revenues are down. Businesses with revenues trending up over the past few years tend to fetch the highest valuations. It is still possible to sell a business showing a downward revenue trend, although the seller may need to accept a lower price. Mistake #3: Failing to maintain confidentiality. Selling a business is unlike selling a house where the real estate agent can simply put up a “For Sale” sign in front of the property. A number of precautions need to take place in order to expose the listing to as many people as possible, yet prevent the company’s employees from finding out about the sale. The failure to maintain confidentiality can lead to low staff morale or even resignations from key employees. Mistake #4: Mentally checking out during the sales process. On average, it takes 9 months to sell a business. Since the 2008 recession, the national average currently is closer to 12 months. Many business owners have unrealistic expectations of how long it takes to sell a business, and check out mentally when their business is on the market. This can lead to the business not being run well, which deters potential buyers. Mistake #5: Making large purchases during the sales process. When the business is on the market, it is often unwise to start making large purchases, which results in an increase in expenses and drop in profitability. The most successful business sellers list their business for sale, forget about it, and continue to run the business as usual. Having to run a business and sell it at the same time is a difficult place to be emotionally for many business owners. Mistake #6: Listing too high to begin with. When selling a house, it is common practice to start high and drop the price later if necessary. This is not the case for business sales. If the sale price of the business is dropped in any significant manner, potential buyers start wondering what is wrong with the business. It is often times a better idea to price the business just right and get multiple buyers interested, possibly resulting in a bidding war that bids the price up. Mistake #7: Not obtaining proper guidance. There are appropriate times to save money, but skimping on good advisors during a business sale can lead to much more expensive mistakes down the road. At a minimum, business sellers should have a good CPA, attorney, and business broker on their team to assist them in the complicated process of selling a business.   To learn more about selling your business, visit http://www.acbrokersinc.com https://youtu.be/9IxlI2LCBUA

Selling a Business - How to Put a Monetary Value on a Business for Sale
 
00:52
http://vestedbb.com/sell-your-business/ - Vested Business Brokers For business owners who are looking to sell their business their first question is typically, "how do I put a value on my business?" At Vested Business Brokers we believe that businesses are sold based on OWNER'S DISCRETIONARY CASH FLOW which is the benefit to the operating owner. Businesses for sale are valued based upon a "multiple" of the owner's discretionary cash flow. This is an earnings method that is based on how much a business is making and what multiple a buyer is willing to pay in order to get those earnings. Other factors that are taken into account when putting a value on a business for sale are: assets inventory terms of existing lease etc. If you're looking to sell your business or buy a business you will benefit from the assistance of an experienced business broker.

How to Put a Value on Your Business
 
02:25
http://vestedbb.com/sell-your-business/ - (877) 735-5224 At Vested Business Brokers we receive emails almost every day from sellers want to know how to value their business before they put it on the market for sale. The first thing that sellers need to do when putting a value on their business is put themselves in the buyer's shoes. Here's what buyers typically consider before buying a business: - how much can I afford? - how much money am I going to make? - does buying this business at this price make sense? As as seller you need to stop thinking about YOUR pocketbook and instead think about the BUYER'S pocketbook. Think about this... The buyer is about to give you his life's savings. That's why the deal has to make sense from his perspective. The higher the net income, the bigger the multiple the business will trade (sell) at. A business making $100,000 a year will NOT sell for 1 million. At Vested Business Brokers we help people buy and sell profitable privately held businesses. We've been in the brokerage business since 2001 and have closed more than 1000 deals. We are experts in helping business sellers value their businesses for sale appropriately so that they are both appealing to business buyers and provide the kind of income the seller needs to exit with enough cash. Give us a call at (877) 735-5224

The valuation of your machine shop welding fabrication business for sale is something I take very seriously. I understand this valuation can affect a lot of people’s lives. When someone puts their trust in me I don’t take it lightly. You will get the best my 40 years of experience can offer you. I will explain how I do these valuations and both in this video presentation and on the website I will show you my experience which should convince you I am the best and only person who should do this work for you. When doing a machine shop valuation or appraisal in (2019) one must understand that 50% to 90% of your business value is in Intangible Assets. This includes the welding, metal fabrication and machine shops that are near you. The old Asset Income and Market Approaches do not work in 2019 Old style valuators generally do not know how, or have no accurate way of measuring those intangible assets in that metal fabricating welding machine shop near me and near you. The old fashioned valuations often rely on one line they call “good will” What we have done with the “25 FACTORS AFFECTING BUSINESS VALUATION” Is to define and measure this “goodwill” in the style one might deem acceptable in (2019) You can call me anytime 1 800 606 0310 FACTORS AFFECTING VALUE These are the factors we consider when doing a business or income valuation: History Purpose Financials Return on Investment How has R&D been accounted for? Shareholder Agreement (if one exists) Value of Employees (cost of recruit ment and training as a group) Value of Client Base and rebuild cost Value of Supply Chain Value of Distribution Network if one exists Internet Presence and Use (social network) Dominance if any in the marketplace Knowledge Base of Owner and Employees Processes, Procedures, and Systems Documentation (how well are all aspects of the company documented) Industry Averages Terms of lease Leasehold Improvements Equipment Inventory Risk Cost of Liquidation (if applicable) Opportunity Liquidity Leverage - Cost of money. Is leverage or applicable and if so at what risk? Minority Interest (if applicable) Special Interest Purchaser - (partners are also special interest purchasers as they have more knowledge, interest, and opportunity, with less risk than regular buyers) Redundancy in Management - How well is the business/practice expected to function with changes in management. (if applicable) Terms of Sale (if relevant) A sale with little down and the seller remaining at significant risk would demand much higher price than an all cash sale. Return on Investment is always our first and last consideration. In my professional opinion as a CPPA nobody should be opening on the value of a small business unless they have owned and operated a small business for at least 10 years.

Business Valuation Pt2 Seller's Discretionary Earnings
 
08:09
Business Valuation @ TheBizSeller.com http://www.thebizseller.com How to determine the value of a business using a multiple of earnings. "Owner's Benefit" or "seller's discretionary earnings" is recommended as the version of earnings to use when determining the value of a business for sale. The purpose of the valuation is not to find the exact value of your business but rather to establish a price range. You then begin your price negotiations at the top of that range and adjust according to feedback you get from the marketplace -- in this case business buyers. You don't need to over complicate the valuation process by attempting to calculate the "perfect number". Ultimately, the true value of your business, or the selling price, can't be determined in a vacuum -- you need input and feedback from real life business buyers.

Asset vs. Share Purchase - How to Sell a Business How to Buy a Business - David C Barnett
 
11:23
http://www.BusinessBuyerAdvantage.com http://www.HowToSellMyOwnBusiness.com http://www.InvestLocalBook.com Buying assets vs. buying shares When buying or selling a business, a common question that comes up is whether to buy or sell the shares or the assets of the business. For some people who are not familiar with this, the concept can be hard to grasp. That’s why I made this video to explain things in simple terms: https://youtu.be/HgDLgwbXgj0 Here’s an illustration. Imagine that Mark owns a lawn maintenance company; Mark’s Lawns Inc. Mark’s Lawns Inc. owns a tractor. If you wanted to get into the lawn maintenance business you could buy Mark’s Lawns Inc. The ownership of the tractor doesn’t change. It was and still is owned by Mark’s Lawns Inc. In this case, the seller is Mark. He’s selling the shares of the corporation to you. The other way to buy the business would be to buy the tractor. In this case, Mark’s Lawns Inc. is the seller. The ownership of Mark’s Lawns Inc. doesn’t change. Mark will still own this corporation after the transaction, the only difference is that the company will have money in it instead of a tractor. Because corporations are people under the law, a share sale makes a new owner subject to liabilities to past events. An attorney will do their best to structure warranties to try to protect a buyer but at the end of the day, a share sale could expose a buyer to unwanted liabilities. Asset sales are technically just the purchase of ‘stuff.’ In this regard a buyer doesn’t necessarily have to worry about most of the past issues with the corporation. Also there are usually tax advantages for buyers who buy assets because equipment that may have been fully depreciated by a seller may now appear on the buyer’s books at fair market value and can be depreciated again by the buyer. Seller’s know this and there is an equal tax disadvantage vis-à-vis depreciated equipment. Also, in some places, such as Canada, there is preferred tax treatment on the sale of shares of an eligible corporation. So when people ask me if they should buy or sell shares or assets I tell them this: Buyers should try to buy assets, sellers should try to sell shares but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter. The type of transaction will form part of the negotiation. Let me give you a simple example. A seller wants $250,000 for their business. A buyer offers $200,000. The seller says that they can’t go that low unless the buyer is willing to purchase shares… a deal is struck. The tax advantages/disadvantages of either form of sale are known by both parties and can sometimes be estimated by both parties. As such, it just comes down to dollars and cents in most cases.. unless there are specific reasons to buy shares such as contracts, government regulation, etc… but that is a subject for another day.

Build Business Credit Here 👉 https://goo.gl/rgcKqV 👈 Market your business here 👉 https://goo.gl/zphWfJ 👈 Businesses for Sale Near Me | Why Buy a Business Near Me 3wayfunding.com Business brokers, also called business transfer agents, or intermediaries, assist buyers and sellers of privately held business in the buying and selling process. They typically estimate the value of the business; advertise it for sale with or without disclosing its identity; handle the initial potential buyer interviews, discussions, and negotiations with prospective buyers; facilitate the progress of the due diligence investigation and generally assist with the business sale. Agency relationships in business ownership transactions involve the representation by a business broker (on behalf of a brokerage company) of the selling principal, whether that person is a buyer or a seller. The principal broker (and his/her agents) then become the agent/s of the principal, who is the broker's client. The other party in the transaction, who does not have an agency relationship with the broker, is the broker's customer. buy a business - why buy a business not build a business? You can learn more about how to buy a business with your 401k or IRA by reading our article warren buffett - how to buy a business - stocks vs businesses. 3 mistakes when buying a business - orange county attorney andrew gale. One of the biggest questions many people are asking themselves, should I start a business from scratch, or should I buy a business So should you buy a business of your own If you've ever wanted to know how to buy a small business, we've got you covered Is it possible to buy a business with no money down, with 100% selller financing The most common services provided by a broker to a client are: Develop a comprehensive Information Memorandum on the company; normally a 15-30 page document outlining the business for potential buyers. Conduct buyer searches. Coordinate negotiations and provide deal structuring advice. Provide overall deal management to guide the client through the entire process. Help maintain confidentiality of the sale. Hourly consulting for a fee, based on the client's needs. Perhaps one of the biggest services provided by brokers is the ability to allow owners to stay focused on running their business during the sale process, which can take on average 6 months to 12 months to complete. General Buying the perfect business starts with choosing the right type of business for you. Start by looking in the local newspaper's classified section under "Business Opportunities" or "Businesses for Sale". Talk to business owners in the industry; many of them might not have their businesses up for sale but would consider selling if you made them an offer. Put your networking abilities and business contacts to use, and you're likely to hear of other businesses that might be good prospects. Many small business owners make use of the business for personal needs. 3. Copies of all contracts and legal documents. Contracts would include all lease and purchase agreements, distribution agreements, subcontractor agreements, sales contracts, union contracts, employment agreements and any other instruments used to legally bind the business. Also, evaluate all other legal documents such as fictitious business name statements, articles of incorporation, registered trademarks, copyrights, patents, etc. If you're considering a business with valuable intellectual property, have an attorney evaluate it. In the case of a real-estate lease, you need to find out if it is transferable, how long it runs, its terms, and if the landlord needs to give his or her permission for assignment of the lease. 4. Incorporation. If the company is a corporation, check to see what state it's registered in and whether it's operating as a foreign corporation within its own state. 5. Tax returns for the past five years. Many small business owners make use of the business for personal needs. They may buy products they personally use and charge them to the business or take vacations using company funds, go to trade shows with their spouses, etc. You have to use your analytical skills and those of your accountant, to determine what the actual financial net worth of the company is. 6. Financial statements for the past five years. Evaluate these statements, including all books and financial records, and compare them to their tax returns. This is especially important for determining the earning power of the business. The sales and operating ratios should be examined with the help of an accountant familiar with the type of business you are considering. The operating ratios should also be compared against industry ratios which can be found in annual reports produced by Robert Morris & Associates as well as Dun & Bradstreet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_broker https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/79638
