Business in Transition?

  1. 1. Preston Willis can help you quantify the value of your company, using CoreValue® Software that combines up-to-date industry transaction data, your CoreValue® Rating, and financial performance. The CoreValue algorithms, based on years of academic and in-market research, will not only estimate your enterprise value, but will identify your potential value and the drivers holding it back. Don’t let anyone say your business has no value. Now you can show them proof it does -- and why. © 2012, CoreValue Software. All rights reserved. CoreValue Software is patent pending. Powered by Now you have built your business, what is the next step? • Sell to a third party • Build its value • Expand into new markets • Transition to Family • Merge with another Company • Renovate to address business issues All of these options require lead time and planning to obtain what you want from the business, for the business, and for your family and your legacy. PWG works with the owner and management team to position the firm to maximize the Transferable Enterprise Value (TEV) today or for the future and position the firm properly so that it will sell. We use proven tools and techniques to quantify the intangible assets hidden within a business – assets that can increase a company’s value by millions – and which a business owner can then use when transferring ownership, raising capital, or building for the future. With a well-defined and proven process, well tested software and seasoned professionals (all of whom have built and run businesses) we help you obtain your goals. Our objective is to: • Maintain the forward momentum of your business • Improve the value of your asset and • Identify and resolve the key value gaps Transitioning or Building Your Legacy: Maximize Enterprise Value ENTERPRISE  VALUE  ASSESSMENT PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
  2. 2. Think of the Enterprise Value Assessment as a ‘body scan’ for your business, identifying weaknesses and quantifying the value of shoring up those weaknesses. We can suggest specific tasks for you to work on, and will identify which tasks give you ‘the biggest bang for your buck’. There’s nothing like watching the value of your business grow. It’s that simple. © 2012, CoreValue Software. All rights reserved. CoreValue Software is patent pending Powered by We can help you identify and fix problems.
