Business Valuation

Buying, selling or transferring a business. Planning your estate. Analyzing ESOP feasibility or resolving a legal dispute. Critical transactions require the help of specialists.

Unlike boutique valuation firms who often work in silos, Boulay’s team of valuation professionals work closely with our tax, estate, wealth management, and transaction advisory groups. This integrated expertise results in valuation opinions that are robust, highly defensible, and likely to result in additional value-added insight to the company and its owners.

Valuing a business requires the consideration of three approaches using a variety of methods to establish a value. Each valuation is unique, as are the objectives of each business owner. It is important to consider current market conditions, industry trends, historical company performance, and forecasts of future cash flow and profit. Our valuation professionals possess the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and they work closely with you to fully understand your needs and deliver a defensible work product.
