Don’t rely on a ‘rule of thumb’ to predict the value of your business.
People often look to their industry, and the size of their company to assess what their company may be worth.
They’ll consider the average multiples other companies are getting, and use a common ‘rule of thumb’ to predict the value of their company.
Yet, time and time again we see companies that outstrip their industry multiple when they get sold.
The reason for this is that there are more factors at play than just the industry ‘rule of thumb’. There are 8 core drivers that make the difference when it comes to the value of your business.
In fact, after analysing more than 55,000 businesses, it’s been found that getting these eight factors right can lead to acquisition offers that are more than twice the industry average.
If you’d like to know how your business rates against these drivers, a great starting point is to get your Value Builder Score.
This is a complimentary assessment tool which will benchmark your company against the 8 Drivers of Value.
Companies that get a score over 80 typically get acquisition offers that are 71% higher than average scoring companies.
Find out how your company scores first, then you can take steps to build real value in your business.
