I have an ownership interest in a business and I want to increase my financial gains from the sale of that interest in order to be more intentional about my legacy to the business, to family, and to my passions
For business owners, we seek to increase the value of a transition from business
ownership using a combination of entities, ownership vehicles, tax management
strategies, and asset transfer timing.
I belong to a governing board of an entity and I wish to fulfill the fundamental responsibility of the board to mitigate the risks to the entity presented by the unexpected exit of a key employee by death or elective departure
For entity governing bodies, we seek to mitigate the risk of the unexpected
or expected exit of an owner or key employee through the use of
insurances, contractual agreements, tax management strategies, and enterprise risk management practices.
I am a partner and wish to mitigate the risk to the business posed by the high cost of purchasing another partners shares from them or their estate in the event of their departure from the partnership

The sooner we create a solution to this for you the less impactful the purchase will be. Naturally the cost impact of purchasing another partners interest is a function of funding and deal structure. It is not always money that someone wants but if it is then we may be able to help establish financial vehicles which reduce the impact of those costs.

      This is a Heading

      A pre-revenue business valuation is an assessment of the value of a business that has not yet started generating revenue. This type of valuation can be challenging because there is no track record of revenue or profit to use as a basis for the valuation. Instead, the value of the business must be based on other factors such as the quality of the business idea, the market opportunity, the competitive landscape, and the team's ability to execute the plan.

      There are several methods that can be used to value a pre-revenue business. These include:

      1. Comparable company analysis

      2. Discounted cash flow analysis

      3. Asset-based valuation

      4. Option pricing

      It is important to note that pre-revenue business valuations are highly subjective and can vary widely depending on the assumptions and methodology used. It is therefore important to seek the guidance of a professional valuation expert when performing a pre-revenue business valuation.

      Comparable Company Analysis

      This method involves comparing the pre-revenue business to similar businesses that are already generating revenue. The valuation is based on the revenue or valuation of the comparable companies.

      Discounted Cash Flow Analysis

      This method involves projecting the future cash flows of the business and discounting them back to present value.

      Asset-Based Valuation

      This method involves valuing the business based on the value of its assets, such as intellectual property or equipment.

      Option Pricing

      This method involves valuing the business based on the value of options that are granted to employees or investors.

      Management Consulting Scenarios

      When Is Management Consulting Most Valuable To You?

      The Weakest Link?

      Termination of a team or team member may have unexpected and far reaching impacts on your business. Morale is often a manageable result of  incongruence in role

      assignment or disfunction in operational policies and procedures. 

      Think Optimization.

      Optimized Organizational Design, Morale, and Operating Cost.

      The Margin Plateau

      Your year over year revenue is up. Your peers tell you theirs is up more. Industry rags tout historical highs.  Where do you really stand? If everyone is up what does that mean for the sale value of your business?

      Think Valuation. 

      Equity valuation, historical statistical analysis of margin performance, and key value indicators.

      Where Do We Go From Here?

      Up year. Down year. Another year.  You were changed.  You made changes. How did those changes impact performance?

      Did outcomes justify the cost?

      Think Measure.

      Tactical planning based on analysis of actions, reactions, and decisions with metrics driving sale value of the firm.
