Business Valuation

Business Valuation

JD Merit has broad expertise in the valuation of middle-market public and private companies.  We are uniquely qualified to provide our clients with the most comprehensive, analytical and timely valuation service possible. Our professionals hold advanced degrees in Finance, Accounting, Tax and Law, as well as professional designations of Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) and Certified Public Accountant (CPA). In addition to answering the question, “What’s It Worth?” JD Merit answers the question “Is It Marketable?”  Oftentimes business value is assessed in a theoretical manner using financial formulas, discounted cash flow analysis, market multiples or industry guidelines. This is ideal for many purposes, but when considering a sale, it is critical to know if interested buyers are active in the market and how deals are getting done. Due to our decades of experience, deep market relationships, extensive data resources and regular discussions with active buyers and investors, JD Merit provides insight into the marketability of a business and advises on the best positioning to attract the highest real-world market value.
