Hi Sal,

I've included a link below to an article I wrote on the process of determining a selling price. Hope that helps. You should also talk an an accountant who is trained & certified as a business valuation specialist. If you only need an "opinion" from them, then it might not be that expensive. The early stages of selling a business are crucial that you get it right.

Sal, there are books about this subject. Getting that kind of in-depth information here, without knowing anything about the business, is simply not rational.
