Request a Professional Business Valuation
KNOWING THE VALUE OF YOUR TAMPA BASED BUSINESS
One question many of our Tampa clients often ask is, “Why is a business valuation (or appraisal) so important?” The answer is multifaceted. Certainly, when it’s time to sell your business, having a credible business valuation will give you a strong idea for an asking price.
But, business valuations are a valuable tool to have even if a business sale isn’t in your near future. From getting the right life insurance policy to getting a loan or working with your financial advisor to plan your estate, it’s imperative that you know what you’re worth—and as someone who owns a business, that business’ value is likely to comprise much of it.
Viking Mergers & Acquisitions of Tampa has created a highly-accurate, proprietary approach to business valuations / appraisals. Here’s what’s involved in the Viking valuation approach:
Viking Mergers & Acquisition’s impeccable ability to negotiate fairly, knowledge of the process, and ability to maintain a level of professionalism is unparalleled. Not only is the Viking Team articulate, honest and consummate professionals, but somehow, they make the process seem relatively painless.
I was extremely impressed that Viking Mergers & Acquisitions brought our company qualified candidates that were interested in Association Management Solutions, Inc. almost immediately after I signed your broker’s agreement. Viking presented me with a signed contract for almost the full asking price from a buyer during the first month that resulted in a successful sale of my company. Viking Mergers & Acquisitions provided professional advice and assistance during the due diligence and closing process. It was a pleasure working with such a highly professional company staffed with dedicated professionals.
Viking Mergers & Acquisitions handled our transaction very skillfully, sorting through the complex financial issues, while matching us with a qualified buyer who also shares many of the same visions that we have for the future of Slayton Computers. Selling a business we have invested 25 years into is difficult; thank you for making it as smooth as you did.
After months of dealing with a buyer and trying to sell my business myself, I decided to list with Viking Mergers & Acquisitions. You handled all aspects of the sale very professionally and efficiently. Within 60 days of listing my business with Viking, you showed it 8 times and sold it for almost double the amount I would have received by selling it myself. I thank you and would highly recommend Viking Mergers & Acquisitions to other business owners.
I was not initially looking to sell my business, but was interested in finding out the market value. After meeting with Viking Mergers & Acquisitions and seeing the price my business was worth, I decided to list my business for sale. Immediately, there were qualified buyers touring my business and in less than 3 months after listing, I received an acceptable offer. I would highly recommend Viking Mergers & Acquisitions to all business owners.
Jay Offerdahl and Viking Mergers & Acquisitions were diligent and thorough in understanding our business and gathering the necessary information to honestly portray its value and characteristics. Viking did a great job of bringing suitable, interested buyers to us and within four months we had a deal. It was much quicker than we had expected. The process of negotiating the price and contract was handled efficiently and quickly. I would recommend Jay Offerdahl and Viking Mergers & Acquisitions without reservation to anyone selling or buying a business in today’s market.
