One of the services that Synergetic Finance provides is business valuations. These are done for many reasons. Sometimes we are engaged directly by a business to determine a fair market value, and sometimes we are hired as an independent, third-party to provide an expert opinion on the value of a business. Here’s why a business valuation might be done:
1. Business transactions, current or future, including mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, initial public offerings, employee stock ownership plans, partner or shareholder buy-ins or buyouts and stock redemptions
2. Litigation related to divorce, bankruptcy, contractual disputes, owner disputes and employment and intellectual property disputes
3. Compliance-oriented valuations for (a) financial reporting and (b) tax matters such as corporate reorganizations; S corporation conversions; income, estate and gift tax compliance, purchase price allocations; and charitable contributions
4. Planning including income tax, estate tax, gift tax and personal financial planning and mergers and acquisitions
Regardless of a company’s reason for requesting a valuation, it is important that the company engage skilled valuation experts like those at Synergetic Finance in Seattle. Our team has the knowledge and expertise to prepare a thorough analysis and business valuation opinion, as well as the ability to take that information and use it proactively to grow or sell your business.
