Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, The most annoying part of it is that someone always post of receiving a loan from them which is nothing but lies and strategy to deceive and extort hard earn money from people. I was victimize several times because of that, After reading a post about them i end up trusting them without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan i sold my car defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life was a piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already about leaving the bank with a broken heart a staff in the bank approach me and say that there is a financial institution called UP START LOAN that say yes even when banks and other financial institution says no. She advised me to give it a try to be honest i was so skeptical leaving the bank without saying a word to her. It was a month later when my eldest son was hospitalized looking up and down nothing to pay for his hospital bill devastated and confused and then i remember what the bank staff told me and i quickly went to the bank to plead with her and inquire on how to contact UP START LOAN and she gave me the details which are Email: ( ) OR call/ text customer service through +1(574) 301-1639 . After following due procedures and comply to their policy in less than 24 hours my credit of $25,000 got approved and transfer to me. I later apply for a home and startup business loan of $350,000 which i receive and i obtain a home at 2076 Simon St, Philadelphia, PA 19124. UP START LOAN is the best. ( or text/call customer service +1(574) 301-1639. Indeed they say yes when your bank and other financial institution says no.

You're at the perfect place -
BizBuySell has a business valuation tool. It works based on % of gross sales in your industry group, or ratio of your EBTDA income.

It'll take you about 10 minutes.

Or, contact aa business broker in your area and ask them to do one for you.
You'll be better off and stand a much better chance of getting a better price, less aggravation and a faster sale if you use a Business Broker.
The fee they charge is negligible, and more times than not, they will get you more than their fee - thereby netting you more money.

It is easy to get a quick valuation from any of the retail business brokers for free. Or it should be. I can give you a very rough idea. Take a sheet of paper, write down the current earnings of the store for the last and most recent full year. Then multiply by three, then add to that number all the "assets" that need to go with the company to the new buyer. Such as inventory mainly. You keep the cash and make sure liabilities are paid off. You will come up with a number that is probably too high but is probably a good reference point.

Hi Lisa,

As you are probably well aware of already there are numerous contributing factors that go into any business valuation. Achieving the maximum value for their hard work over the years is a significant priority. In the end it all comes to finding/partnering with the "right" buyer. And as I am sure you are well aware of in the business world it is all about the right connections. Getting to right attention from the right buyer, strategic or equity buyer, can make a world of difference in the price that a buyer is willing to pay b/c many buyers value things differently and have varying motives for what they might be willing to pay.

In dealing w/ successful business owners, I can relate to the confusion in the sale process. I am a merger & acquisition advisor for a private boutique firm.
Refer to our website below for further details.

I would love the opportunity to chat further with you.
