Business Valuation

Introduction to Business Valuations

Business Valuation

“A business valuation is an independent assessment of the value of a business. Assessing the value of your business can be important for many reasons. Perhaps it is for the purposes of restructuring, for an imminent sale or to settle a dispute. Whatever the purpose, we can provide you with the level of analysis you need.”

There are different levels of valuation reports, from a basic preliminary assessment to a comprehensive, certified business valuation calculation. EVCOR provides a range of business evaluation services to suit your needs. Contact us today to learn more about our services in business valuation in Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver and most parts of Canada.

Some business valuation service providers say establishing the value of a business is more art than science. If that was true, then the value of your enterprise would be merely subjective. Enterprise Valuators takes a different approach. We believe in thorough due diligence, and our painstaking assessment process results in a business valuation that is both evidence-based and accurate.

It is true, however, that each business is unique, and finding an exact valuation comparable is often impossible. Yet by exploring the business’s unique characteristics from the perspective of a hypothetical buyer, the valuator can conclude on its value with reasonable certainty, especially when combined with an in-depth exploration of external factors.

The conclusion of value is important, but we believe that you deserve a report that clearly identifies the process and logic behind the opinion. We explain the technical jargon in concise and succinct terminology. We do this by providing a coinciding explanatory dialogue that flows in parallel with the technical explanations. Our reports might be longer than some, but their value to you as a business owner is enhanced by their clarity.

As well, Enterprise Valuators Corporation goes above and beyond the standard valuation by helping business owners identify opportunities to enhance their business’s value and correct value-impairing business practices. Click below to read more about our value-added offering.
