Business Valuation

How much is your business worth? At what price could it be sold? What percentage should you give up to bring in a new investor? Answers to these questions (and many, many more) can be found through a proper business valuation.

A business valuation starts with the numbers, and Richter’s approach is to dig into your financial information methodically and analytically. But a Richter Business Valuation is more than just a financial analysis. Our team has real-world experience – we know how businesses are valued in actual market transactions and we bring this knowledge to bear throughout the valuation process. We take the time to understand your business, what makes it special, what are its value drivers. The final product is a business valuation that’s accurate, reliable, and more importantly, realistic. Because if it’s not, it won’t help you or your business.
