Business Valuations

Business Valuations

Few things are more important to business owners than the value of their business. The valuation you get for your business can make or break a proposition. Whether you're negotiating a merger, considering new shareholders, attempting to resolve disputes associated with liability, shareholder equity, estate planning or marital dissolution, objective valuation can make the difference between loss or gain, success or failure.

Business valuation is not an exact science. It's based on judgment, experience and relevant information. So, you need professionals who are well qualified, with significant experience in evaluating all types of organizations. Our approach is to intimately know your business in order to understand what constitutes its value. We work closely with you to analyze your operations and historical financial data. Our in-depth knowledge of your business enables us to provide a well-reasoned, fully documented and defensible valuation opinion.

Industry Experience

KGSG has professionals that are certified in the following designations:

  • Certified Valuation Analysts (CVA), are members of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA).  NACVA is a substantial group of business valuation professionals who are CPA’s and are trained in accounting, tax, and financial analysis.  Furthermore, NACVA’s certification process is rigorous and requires a complete understanding of the valuation process.
  • Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV), is a designation issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for professionals in the valuation community.  Each ABV completes course work studies and passes a comprehensive exam and is required to have 10 cases that they assist another ABV prior to obtaining certification.
  • Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF), issued by the AICPA, assists in performing forensic asset tracing for missing and unreported assets.
