A thorough business analysis may be used for many purposes including obtaining business loans, estate planning, determining a basis for charitable donations, resolving partnership disputes, divorce settlements, etc. Current market opinions are also part of the initial process as business owners look to Walden when deciding whether to sell their businesses.
When used as a basis for deciding to market the company, a disciplined approach to the opinion, combined with years of experience assisting in actual transactions, will result in a market opinion that reflects the value likely to be perceived by buyers in the marketplace. Therefore, when the market opinion is complete, you will have documentation of comprehensive, realistic information about your company's worth, upon which you can base a selling decision. Ultimately, goals and needs control the selling decision; the business owner is the only entity who can determine if the timing is right to sell. If the decision is made to proceed with a sale, the seller will have the satisfaction of knowing that the business is understood and that Walden has the resources to effectively market the company. Walden believes that its methodology will enable business owners to realize the optimum price and terms for their businesses.
