It has been found that the majority of businesses sell for somewhere between 2 to 3 times seller’s discretionary earnings. This is a very important factor in determining what your business will be worth, so it should not be ignored!
It can take some work and research to get an idea of how much you company would go for on average, but there are places online where people post their own experiences selling or buying companies like yours.
There are several different ways that can determine the market value of your business. One way is to calculate the assets and inventory, while another is to compare current revenue or profits with past sales figures in order for you find out what a comparable company might be worth. Another method would simply multiply earnings per share by number of shares outstanding plus any treasury stock – this will help give an idea as to how much capitalization there was obtained through issuing common stocks at a given point in time. Whichever formulae one may choose from, they all provide insight into determining listing prices after assessing valuation information about their respective companies.
There are many methods for finding out how valuable your business really is based on either current revenues and profit levels compared against historical data.
The best way to price your property is within the market. If it’s too high, buyers will think you’re unreasonable and won’t make an offer; if its below-market value, potential buyers may question whether or not your listing has any legitimacy because they assume that something being “too good to be true” must have a catch. A happy medium between these two extremes is what leads business quickly selling for profitably.
