Hi Wes, before you get a valuation, think first about how saleable your company is. A valuation does not give you insight into whether a buyer would be attracted to the business the way you operate it today. To learn how to think like a buyer and then evaluate how saleable your company is, which is the question you are really asking, you might appreciate the free guide "Five Steps to Make Your Company Saleable" available at best of luck.

Hi Wes,

Valuing your business is often a complex process which, like Don suggested, involves comparables and an analysis of cash flow.

Transworld offers a complimentary market valuation for owners that will give you an idea of what your company can sell for. I would be happy to assist you if you have about 30 minutes to discuss. You can reach me at or 720-357-6848.

Thank you,

Valuing companies through the use of comparables can be highly misleading. We believe the best - and frequently, the only way - is through a careful analysis of cash flow.
