Business Advice

New business acquisition

Are you looking to purchase a new business and are unsure if the price the seller is asking is fair? The current market provides a good opportunity for businesses with a strong free cash flow to expand through acquisition. It’s important to be aware of some of the value drivers of a business though, to ensure you’re paying what you deserve.

Some of the ‘value drivers’ of a business are:

  • Future performance
  • Financial leverage
  • Financial return expectation
  • Cash flow
  • Deal structure
  • Asset type
  • Exit strategy

Centenary Accounting can offer you sound, honest business advice and will carry out a business valuation to ensure your output rightfully corresponds with the value of the business. During this valuation, all of the above value drivers will be taken into consideration.
