Request a Professional Business Valuation
A STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS FOR VALUING
YOUR CHARLESTON / MOUNT PLEASANT BUSINESS
“What’s my business worth?” It’s certainly a question that’s at the top of your mind if you’re thinking about selling a business. But since your business is part of your net worth, it’s something you may also want to know because you’re applying for a loan, getting life insurance or doing estate planning.
No matter your reason for wanting a business valuation, the business professionals at Viking Mergers & Acquisitions can help. We’ll guide you step-by-step through our proprietary business valuation process, giving you data-driven answers to your business value questions. Let’s take a closer look at the Viking business valuation process.
The team at Viking Mergers was instrumental in getting our business sold. Trevor and Jay laid out the process at the beginning and then assisted us along the way by referring us to numerous resources such as lawyers & accountants needed to get the sale completed. They were always focused on ensuring that we were successful in getting what we wanted out of the sale even when emotions and egos started surfacing. Trevor, in particular, was always available & kept us focused on achieving the goal of getting our company sold at the peak of our 12-year run. I have already and will continue to recommend Trevor, Jay, and Viking to others whom I know in the market for buying & selling companies. Thanks again to Viking, Jay & Trevor for making this such a wonderful experience & look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Thanks to the entire team for getting the sale of Home Design Decor magazine over the goal line. Everyone at Viking that I was involved with were top notch professionals. Greg performed with determination with a great balance as the deal-facilitator and counselor for the buyer. It certainly is a delicate balance.
Keenan Moran is a class act. He advised me through the process of buying Equipment Design and Fabrication. I always felt that he was not only looking out for my best interest, but that he was fairly assessing and making recommendations for everyone’s best interest. Sure, he is really smart, responsive, and a great problem solver, but also one of those great people you hope to work with again someday.
Like the real estate agent who helps find the perfect house for you, Keenan Moran is a great combination of…
Greg White is one of the most organized, dedicated and hard-working professionals that I have ever worked with and he was there to help me along the way. Every time I had a doubt during the process he was extremely positive and walked me through the low points. I couldn’t have found the right buyer without Greg White and the Viking team. I would recommend Viking very highly; Greg White is a very kind individual and one of the hardest working people that I have ever been involved with.
In 2017 it became clear that I needed to retire. I called Brad Offerdahl at Viking, and after my first meeting with him, it was very apparent that he had the ability and knowledge in order to determine a proper pricing of the company – something that would work for not only the seller but also the buyer. Through the entire involved process, Viking was very helpful, very timely and we were able to close the sale in about 5 months. Normally it takes 6-9 months to sell a business. I would strongly recommend Viking to anyone looking to sell a business or purchase a business. They did an amazing job for me and my company.
