Data Analysis and Valuation Calculations
Our analysis of the financial information provided by you will include:
- A comparison of historical results of operations and financial position, typically for five years, to identify trends in the company's earnings, cash flows and financial position.
- A comparison of the company's operations and financial position to similar-size businesses in the same industry to further identify the company's strengths and weaknesses. Key operating ratios are developed for past operations and compared to similar-size companies to identify trends and strengths and weaknesses of your business.
- The preparation of common-size, or percentage basis, balance sheets and income statements of the company for several years, and a comparison to information on similar-size businesses.
We believe that reviewing this information with you and other key managers of the company provides you with tools to benchmark your company's business to others of similar-size. Knowing your company's strengths and weaknesses should also prove beneficial in your planning and developing strategies to maximize value.
