Need a bulletproof Business Valuation
“I greatly appreciate the work Eric did on the Valuation of my company. It stood up in court. (April 2017) The Judge soundly admonished the Chartered Business Valuator who tried to contradict Eric’s valuation. If someone needs confirmation and wants to speak to me; Eric has permission to release my number”. (Julian)
Second opinion on a questionable Valuation?
We find that most small business valuators concentrate on Asset, Market, and Income approaches developed in the 1970’s. These are generally easy to defeat in 2017 as most businesses are now made up of 50% or more in “intangible assets” these valuators neglect, or have no means, to properly measure.

How Financials Can Be Deceiving:
Accounting for tax purposes is totally different than interpreting financial statements for Business Valuation Purposes. Let us give you just one example: (Think Partnership or Divorce)
For tax purposes R&D is an expense in the year the R&D occurred. For the purpose of an accurate valuation the R&D should be amortized over a period of 5 to 12 years. HUGE DIFFERENCE.
The financials must be normalized to reflect proper treatment of R&D. If we didn’t do this a company could spend 95% (or all) of the profit on R&D and might successfully claim the company to be worth very little for a short period of time. Perhaps not fraud but certainly manipulation, depending upon the purpose. (Divorce or other partnership)
VALUATIONS RANGE $1000 TO $5,000 AND SOMETIMES HIGHER (AVERAGE $3,500)
