Knowing the value of your business is critical to your banks, current investors, potential investors, and potential buyers. It’s also important to know how to increase the value of your business in ways other than sales growth. In this seminar we will discuss the various ways business valuation is calculated and how to know if you can improve that value. We’ll also examine the many ways improvement may take place without heavy capital infusions or dramatic increases in sales. What you will learn today are methodologies that have been proven over the years as Nperspective has helped hundreds of companies grow their businesses, prepare for investors, prepare for sales, and shepherd clients through the sales process.
