Valuing Your Business

What Is My Business Worth?

VR Business Brokers have correctly valued 100’s of thousands of business since 1979. A professional valuation report that is accurate and comprehensive and will stand up to scrutiny.

Four key value factors considered:

  • Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE).
  • Risk.
  • Terms of Sale.
  • Industry.

Seller’s Discretionary Earnings:

Re-states the business financials to determine the value of total cash-flow benefiting the owner.

SDE is calculated using the following six categories:

  • Profit or loss as reported.
  • Owner’s salary.
  • Discretionary expenses.
  • Non-recurring expenses.
  • Non-cash expenses.
  • Expenses not included in the P&L.

Once these categories are totaled and SDE is developed, a multiplier is applied (1 – 5X or more) considering the business’ performance and the industry.

Wonder no more.
