You know what you've put into your company. We make sure that potential buyers and investors see the value of what you've built. Whatever your end goal is, we can improve your operational efficiencies, increase profitability, and reduce costs.
When the time comes to sell your business, we can help maximize its value. Using Insight Advantage, Financial Solutions, Inc.'s proprietary analytical system that can compare your financial performance to similar companies in your industry, we view your company through the eyes of a potential buyer. We perform an in-depth review of your financial position, operations, business strategy and position in the marketplace. The review generally includes a business market valuation, pro-forma financials, and comparative industry analysis, as well as additional analysis tailored to the specific needs of each client. We identify ways to increase profitability, decrease costs and improve operational efficiencies, and make your business a more attractive acquisition.
Understanding the market valuation of your company helps business owners develop a strategic exit plan and make other business decisions, as well. We generally calculate valuations based on:
- Historical earnings
- Pro forma earnings for companies of a certain size
- Comparable valuation (comparable companies & comparable transactions)
- Discounted cash flow
We also consider the current business climate which can impact company valuations, including:
- Economic and credit environments
- Relative attractiveness of your industry
- Structure of the transaction
Valuations also allow you to compare your company's operation against industry standards. FSI will work with you to maximize value by increasing profitability, decreasing costs, and improving operational efficiencies.
As experts in mergers and acquisitions of privately-held companies, Financial Solutions, Inc. can help you plan and position your company to net the maximum sale price. Using our comprehensive Insight Advantage system, we maximize the value of your company. We review your internal financial controls and operations, recommend strategies to improve them, retrain staff if necessary, and monitor progress to keep everything on track.
Once your company's value has grown to meet or exceed market multiples of comparable businesses, we prepare a deal book. We discreetly present it to qualified buyers, help negotiate the terms of the purchase and sale agreement, and assist with due diligence activities. We work closely with your accountants, attorneys, and financial advisors on structuring the deal and terms of sale. In summary, we serve as the deal's "quarterback," driving it forward until we reach our goal—a successful sale.
We work on a selective basis with firms seeking capital or debt financing, helping them optimize their financial positions so they can seek financing at favorable terms. We serve more mature companies in search of expansion capital.
