Business Valuations & Litigation Support

What is Business Valuation?

Business valuations are performed because ownership interests in privately held companies often represent a significant portion of one’s net worth. The value of an ownership interest in a privately help company is usually unknown because there is no active market to sell or trade that interest.

Establishing an accurate assessment of value for any business, enterprise or intangible asset requires in-depth, specialized knowledge. Snyder & Company has a team of skilled professionals who have gained expertise and certification in the area of business valuations.

Why should you use a Business Valuation Analyst?

Certified business valuation professionals with practical experience as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) are well prepared to provide valuation services. Our varied experience and training in valuation theory and application, litigation support, accounting and tax will provide you with a qualified objective and thorough valuation.

Numbers, facts, figures, balance sheets and financial statements simply are not adequate to accurately measure the true market value of an asset. Many different approaches and methods of valuation analysis should be reviewed and selectively matched to the asset being valued. Selecting the most appropriate methodology, supported by various types of analysis, sophisticated mathematical calculations, ratio analysis, industry comparisons, economic and market analysis, relative business risk assessment and many other considerations are required to achieve a competent valuation.

When valuing your business, it is important to have the assurance that the valuation analyst considers all the relevant information and facts so you get the full economic benefit you deserve. Using a qualified business valuator will give you confidence, peace-of-mind and the advantage of knowing you will receive a professional product.
