Imagine you own a business, or part of one. Imagine you have been running a business for a decade or longer. Imagine you want to buy a business. Imagine another business has approached yours, with an idea for a joint venture or merger.
You know there is value involved, and perhaps you have an opinion about the value which the business has intrinsically to you, as an owner, as a seller, as a potential investor.
That is the value, below which you would not be prepared to sell it, or above which, you would not consider buying it.
But is it a market related value? Are you selling yourself short, or paying over the top? In other words, what is the market most likely to pay – in an arm’s length, all pertinent factors known to both parties, finance available, willing buyer, willing seller – transaction?
That’s where Suitegum valuations and evaluations become very useful.
For more than 25 years, we have been involved in mergers, acquisitions and disposals of small and medium size businesses – those with a public interest score (PIS) up to 500.
We have helped the same clients to raise capital for such transactions, and capital to fund growth.
For a quarter of a century we have advised people on the value of their African businesses, and the strategic value creation and addition to value, through more than just adding profit to the income statement.
We offer two variants (evaluation & valuation) of our popular methodology, in three different products (Select for more information):
- Key value indicator (KVI) evaluation
- Market business valuation
- Diligent business valuation & evaluation
All our valuation and evaluation products are not so much a theoretical "would be nice" assessments. They are truthful, no holds barred, reports on fact.
We do not conduct valuations in favour of a particular side in any dispute. Our outcomes are defendable. If you are looking for padding, discounting, or justification for “a number”, then you would be best served elsewhere.
