We believe that one of the foundations of establishing the real value of an enterprise is to have it analyzed by an entirely unbiased business valuation specialist. By specializing, we provide our customers – whether it be the business owner themselves or their professional advisors – with an entirely impartial assessment of value.
Our focus is on the business valuation of small and mid-sized private companies and identifying the aspects that build their value. EVCOR performs a thorough valuation that analyzes all aspects of the business which includes the assets, operations, benefit stream and external factors such as the industry, regional market, and competition.
We believe you deserve a clearly written and concise valuation report and feel it is our duty to identify potential opportunities.
The conclusion of value is important, but we believe that you deserve a report that clearly identifies the process and logic behind the opinion. To achieve this, we explain the technical jargon in concise and succinct terminology. We do this by providing a coinciding dialogue that flows in parallel with the technical explanations. Yes, you do get a lengthy report but its value to you as a business owner is enhanced by its clarity.
They say not to leave money on the table. Our analysts believe this is true and don't wear blinders when valuing your business; if they identify and opportunity or problem, they reveal it to you. We will identify potential problem areas and unrealized areas for improvement. Through our consultants and network, we can help you unlock unrealized value in your business. Go beyond what your business is today. There are always new methods to build value in your business and given adequate time you can execute a plan to realize it.
The sale of a business involves a community. If your valuation is part of your preparation for a liquidity event, it is imperative to integrate a more comprehensive plan than just the sale. Given time and the right combination of your advisors and our strategic partners, your embedded cash has the best chance of providing you with the means to retire. The best time is now to get started with this plan.
