M&A Valuations

Arriving at a valuation opinion you can trust requires science, art and collaboration.

It isn't every day you buy or sell a business – or a portion of one. Naturally, when you sell, you want top dollar. For most closely held businesses, however, arriving at that right price is challenging.

If you're buying, is the price they're asking really what it's worth?
