What determines the value of a business?

Based on the analysis of more than 60,000 businesses, we know that 8 factors determine the value of a business:

Financial Performance Your history of producing revenue and profit combined with the professionalism of your record keeping.

Growth Potential Your likelihood to grow your business in the future and at what rate.

Switzerland Structure How dependent your business is on any one employee, customer or supplier.

Valuation Teeter Totter Whether your business is a cash suck or a cash spigot.

Recurring Revenue The proportion and quality of automatic, annuity-based revenue you collect each month.

Monopoly Control How well differentiated your business is from competitors in your industry.

Customer Satisfaction The likelihood that your customers will re-purchase and also refer you.

Hub & Spoke How your business would perform if you were unexpectedly unable to work for a period of three month.

Why is your score on these 8 dimensions critical?

Based on the analysis of more than 60,000 businesses, a score of 90 or above out of 100 points will result in more offers for your firm and a multiplier than can be twice as high.
