Discover the True Value of Your Business with Achieve Corporation’s Comprehensive Valuation Methods

Why Should You Value Your Business?

Whether you’re on the brink of selling your company, raising equity capital, or simply planning your exit strategy, understanding your business’s valuation is crucial. Achieve Corporation is your trusted partner in this journey, offering comprehensive valuation methods tailored to your unique needs.

Why Valuation Methods are Necessary

For Sale Purposes: Establish a baseline for negotiations with prospective buyers.

Share Valuation: Required for tax implications on gifts or sales of shares, death of a shareholder, or specific events affecting trusts.

Legal & Compliance: Address shareholder disputes, financial settlements in divorces, or insolvency/bankruptcy issues.

Performance Metrics: Use regular valuations as benchmarks to evaluate business performance and incentivize staff.

Valuation Methods Tailored to Your Needs

(Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) is pivotal in SME business valuation. It standardizes operational performance, aiding comparisons across industries. By excluding non-operating expenses, it highlights core profitability, essential for sustainability assessment. EBITDA also assesses debt servicing capacity, crucial in M&A and credit evaluations by banks. It’s a vital, standardized tool for accurate SME valuation.

Earnings Multiples

Ideal for established, profitable businesses, earnings multiples use the Price/Earnings ratio as a benchmark. This ratio is then adjusted based on several factors, providing a nuanced valuation.

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)

Appropriate for cash-generating, mature companies, DCF focuses on long-term cash flow forecasts and their current values, allowing for a dynamic assessment of a business’s worth.

Entry Cost

The Entry Cost method considers the costs of starting a business from scratch, offering potential buyers a comprehensive view of investment requirements.


This approach is optimal for asset-rich companies like manufacturing or real estate businesses. It focuses on the value of tangible assets minus liabilities.

Industry Rules of Thumb

In industries where transactions are frequent, certain standards may develop, such as the number of outlets for a retail business or recurring fees for professional services.

Other Factors Influencing Valuation

Growth Potential: A rapidly growing business is often more valuable, making it attractive to buyers.

External Factors: Economic conditions and market trends can significantly influence valuation.

Intangible Assets: Assets like brand strength, goodwill, or key personnel can add significant value.

Circumstances: The context of the valuation can determine which method is most suitable.
