To prepare the highest quality business valuations, Accordia Consulting LLC uses an intricate blend of skills including accounting, finance, security analysis, economics, tax, computer modeling, appraisal principles and methods, and valuation law. Using this rare blend of services, we consistently satisfy our client's demanding business and financial needs.
We focus on the purpose of the appraisal and apply the applicable standard or definition of value. We also analyze the degree of control and the impact of marketability on value. The degree of control or lack of it may affect the value of the business interest. Additionally, the marketability of the business or business interest may impact its value. All other things being equal, investors prefer to own something that they can control and liquidate immediately without depressing value.
Whether a transaction is formed as a merger, liquidation, buy/sell, or gift, the business valuation should take center stage. Even before the decision of whether the transaction should be formed as taxable or nontaxable, the value of the business and its components should be clearly understood. In valuing a business, multiple techniques may be applied including determining the value of the business enterprise and allocating that value to the basket of assets. Alternatively, the value of the separate assets can be determined which thereby determines the value of the business enterprise. We clearly understand that the allocation of the value of a business to its integral components may substantially impact the taxation of a transaction either immediately or at some future time.
One of the fundamentals in valuing a business using an income approach is to begin with a normalized cash flow. To achieve a normalized level of earnings, Accordia Consulting LLC's staff will develop knowledge of our client's industry and the internal cost structure of companies operating in that industry. It is possible that executive compensation and related benefits need to be examined to determine whether earnings should be adjusted upward or downward. For operating real estate properties, Accordia Consulting LLC's staff will consult with our client's management relative to the condition of the properties, whether any repairs have been deferred, and whether other substantial adjustments should be considered in determining normalized earnings. Once normalized earnings have been determined, an appropriate discount or capitalization rate can be applied to determine value.
Through research, we identify and analyze comparable companies (also referred to as guideline companies) to the subject company being valued. These guideline companies may be publicly traded companies or recently acquired/merged companies. By using relevant statistics from these guideline companies, Accordia Consulting LLC is able to derive valuation guidance that may be applied to determine the subject company's value.
Not only are quantitative factors important but qualitative factors may affect the value of a business or business interest. Accordia Consulting LLC will incorporate qualitative factors (including but not limited to the depth of management, diversity of the product line, or the number of potential customers) when choosing valuation pricing multiples or capitalization rates.
