PCO Bookkeepers & M&A Specialists’ Business Valuation Process

Our business valuation process includes research and analysis of all pertinent information, including financial modeling and market analysis. The result is a comprehensive valuation report that examines the business value as well as key industry benchmarks and cost analysis prepared within American Society of Appraisers (ASA) guidelines.

Theoretical Value vs. Fair Market Value

In addition to the theoretical value engineered for the above engagements, we can help you determine the Fair Market Value (FMV) at a given point in time, as well as help you with marketing the company for sale.

We’ll help you understand the differing valuation theories and compare them to how the strategic acquirers look at valuation, generally referred to as Investment Value. There is a difference.

The multiples you see cited for pest control companies in the press are simply high-level ratios participants point to when explaining value relative to other comparable (or not so comparable) transactions. They do NOT drive decisions made by acquiring companies. PCO can help you uncover the true, value-driving performance indicators because we’ve studied them with real clients and used them to help our clients improve their profitability, whether it’s for running their businesses the best they can or to make them the most attractive target among many others.
