Business Valuations, Sale of businesses

How we help you

Our principle activities are in relation to the sale of businesses (net worth $1M - $10M), as well as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of middle market companies.

We have concluded many sales, mergers and acquisitions of successful middle market companies with both public companies and private investors as well as providing corporate advice in preparing businesses for sale to achieve maximum saleability potential.

Whether you are buying or selling a business, Bagnall Associates will investigate the market factors contributing to any "value-added" merger, acquisition or sale of business.

A review of all financial, operational and organisational factors is carried out to determine the "true" market value of the business. A Business Valuation and/or Market Appraisal, depending on the individual requirements of the client, is then determined.

Business Valuation/Market Appraisal - How does one determine "true" market value?

Our analysis takes into account the following data:

  • History of the business from date of commencement
  • Product lines and/or services
  • Financial position of the company
  • Goodwill and other intangible values
  • Nature of the industry at large
  • Competition and its impact on the company
  • Earnings history and future earnings capability
  • Specific factors applicable to the subject business,e.g., license renewal, product obsolescence, continuity of supply etc.

The Business Valuation or Market Appraisal provides the client with a profile which is used to analyse and develop guidelines for targeting companies of potential synergy.

Specific acquisitions or disposal criteria are then developed, tailoring a suitable strategy in line with the client's objectives.
