    Why Business Valuation is About More Than Forecasted Earnings

    Posted by Lloyd Bell on Jul 30, 2019 2:23:00 PM

    Business valuation is not as simple as multiplying earnings by a number and receiving recent earnings or forecasting earnings. One must get behind the numbers and assess them in order to know the risk of generating those earnings on an annual or go-forward basis.

    Valuing a company requires a complete understanding of business operations, economic and industrial conditions, tax laws, and knowledge of the current capital markets. You can trust the business valuation consultants at Meaden & Moore to be well-versed in all these areas and more.

    All of our business valuation methods adhere to the standards created by professional valuation organizations. Our business valuation services are used in many different ways, including acquisitions and divestitures, litigation support, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), and more.
