Business valuation

The SADC du Suroît-Sud can evaluate the business potential by performing a diagnostic through a concrete and in-depth analysis of its activities.

Some elements that allow us to understand the fair market value of a business are:

  • Value of buildings and equipment;
  • Financial position, annual report and analysis of the company’s profitability;
  • Intellectual property;
  • Profitability comparison with similar businesses;
  • Relationship with suppliers, clients and financial institutions;
  • Reputation, client list and employee expertise;
  • Market trends.

 

For a business acquisition and/or sale, the SADC du Suroît-Sud can validate the required financing for the transaction through a financial analysis.

The SADC du Suroît-Sud can assist the seller or the buyer by demonstrating a business growth potential and its profitability perspectives, by analysing its rate of return and the company’s financial situation.

The business sale price must be validated by a certified, independent business appraiser.
