Knowing your worth sets the stage for increasing it.
Business valuations are a specialized discipline and not just a matter of plugging in numbers. They establish the true worth and value of an organization’s or individual’s total wealth and assets, both tangible and intangible. They also take into account a business’ performance in the context of its competition, its industry and the larger economic trends, providing a comprehensive and strategic overview.
While many firms have only dabbled in business valuations here and there, the team at Hall, Kistler has considerable knowledge in this arena. With two team members holding Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) designations, Hall, Kistler is somewhat of an anomaly in the accounting field and their region, performing on average around 50 business valuations a year, whereas firms of comparable size typically perform less than ten a year. With extensive experience performing business valuations for Oil & Gas concerns, manufacturers and companies in a variety of other industries, Hall, Kistler are experts who regularly provide this specialized service for businesses with a very broad spectrum of valuation totals.
Getting it right is an art, but the results must be solid enough to stand up under tough conditions such as tax examination, corporate negotiations and the courtroom. You need a professional with a full grasp of the three generally accepted valuation standards and the expertise to approach the business valuation process objectively and thoroughly to deliver a realistic appraisal with defensible numbers that will withstand all potential challenges. Valuations can be critical in situations such as:
Estate tax and gift planning
Purchase or sale of a business
Divorce and other personal litigation
Corporate litigation support
Mergers and acquisitions
Bankruptcy and restructuring
