Why are Valuations so Expensive?
The need for business valuation services that incorporate high-level analysis are driven by the purpose for which the valuation is to be used. Most appraisals are used in divorces, partnership dissolutions, and bankruptcies, as well as for SBA loans and various tax purposes. Needless to say, if an appraiser is going up against a battery of attorneys, the IRS, or the SBA, his valuation must be bulletproof.
Thus, formal business valuations are highly analytical works that must consider every possible contributor to the value of a business. As such, the appraiser must: 1) consider the current state of the national economy; 2) investigate the industry in which the business operates; 3) study the local economy; 4) analyze the company's balance sheets and income statements and compare them to the rest of the industry; 5) determine the appropriate rate of return an investor would expect from such an acquisition; and, 6) research and analyze similar transactions that have occurred in the past. All the above data must then be reconciled in a reasonable and logical manner to produce a single estimate of value.
But what if the above are not your reasons for obtaining a valuation? Maybe you are a business owner who is doing long-range planning for an exit strategy and wish to have an idea of the value of your business. Maybe you are a buyer who is considering purchasing a business. You might even be a banker or broker who needs a quick estimate of value before you expend a considerable amount of time and money to develop a client relationship which may have no future. In these cases you are already intimately familiar with the operations of the company and the state of the economy. There is no intention of using the valuation for legal purposes - it is only to be used to give an owner a solid estimate of value.
