Our last survey results...


What valuation methods are being used to determine the value of a business? 

  • There are any number of ways to formally value a business however most trade sales of existing businesses come down to a multiple of average 3 years profit plus stock etc. The real trick to increasing the sale price of the business is to focus on increasing the "multiple" factor rather than just the profit (frankly most often harder to do). To explain with some simple numbers. Average 3 yrs profit = 100 and average trade sale multiple = 2 then sale price = 200. If profit increases 120 then sale price moves to 240 where as if the multiple moves to just 2.5 sale price jumps to 250. So the real question is how does one optimise ones business to quickly move the multiple ? (Michael, AS Fisher & Co) 
  • For a small sign business with revenue <$0.5M I'd expect 2-3x EBITDA. For larger businesses, 3-5x EBITDA
  • You have to look at many things as any business is only of value if it can keep making profits. I use past 3 years EBITDA and nett; plus latest quarter;allow for Add-backs (company cars, directors' benefits etc) staff longevity and critical roles; length of leases; age and depreciated value of equipment; balance of the customer list (a business with 60% of work coming in from one source is NOT a good buy)and lastly Goodwill asked. In the end it boils down to 'How much do I want for my business?' and a due-diligence level of examination to see if it worth anywhere near that. 
  • 3.5 times the profit after all costs are taken out including the owners salary. This is provided that the business has a large and up todate data base.
  • 3 time annual profit seems to be the average pricing that I have ever heard about

Baby Pearl's First words - so cute!

Bagpiper
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country. 
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. 
There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. 
I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. 
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man. And as I played Amazing Grace, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. 
Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, 
"I never seen nothing like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years." Apparently I'm still lost....it's a man thing.
