  6. 6. Top 10 Ways to Increase the Value of Your Business Here’s how to rig the system with hot input and information to increase the value!
  7. 7. • It will be the first thing everyone wants to see when buying or valuing your business. With today’s computer technologies and programs you have zero excuse not to have your business records completely automated and accurate to the minute. #1 Keep good books and records
  8. 8. • Up trends are very important. A buyer will value the future earnings based on past results. If the chart is going up, the future earnings must have a growth trend too, and the value will be higher. Would you buy a business that made $150k, then $200K, then $250K in successive years? (YES) Would you buy the reverse business? (NO) Would you buy a business that was flat? (PERHAPS) Would they be equally valued? NO! #2 Grow earnings before you sell.
  9. 9. • I know none of you business owners expense unnecessary items in your businesses. But many legitimate expenses could even be declared by a valuation expert as discretionary. (Did you really have to visit Filta HQ During Bowl Week) Keep a separate credit card, or accounting notation, or a journal. #3 Separate fringe benefits from real expenses.
  10. 10. • Small businesses are valued on one owner operator working the business. If your spouse performs a job that must be replaced, the value will be negatively impacted. Your best bet is to phase the family out and have staff that will stay on after a sale. Also, no buyer wants to work 60 plus hours a week. If you do, you had better get some staff before you try to sell. Chief cook and bottle washer business owners will find it very hard to sell. Transfer the knowledge NOW! #4 Have proper management and staff in place.
  11. 11. • If your business is cramped and the business is limited by the current facility and equipment, you business valuation will reflect that ceiling of revenues and profits. Either sell before you need to invest, or buy the equipment and move the business, and sell in a few years. #5 Have the capacity to grow and make capital expenses.
  12. 12. • (Getting the picture yet?) There are several great accountants and CPA firms in your area. PICK ONE AND USE THEM! #6 Keep good books and records.
  13. 13. • Your business is primarily valued based on the profit to you! And yes, they do use multiples, and the multiple increases as the profit increases, i.e. a business making $100K may be worth 2x’s ($200K), but a business making $500K may be worth 3x’s ($1.5M)….but remember #2, the trend also affects multiples. # 7 Increase the bottom line.
  14. 14. • The value of equipment and businesses will be higher if everything works and looks nice. Also, buyers will want everything in working order at the day of closing…even that old piece of equipment that you do not use anymore. #8 Keep everything in good repair…and if you do not use it THROW IT OUT!
  15. 15. • You got it now right!! FYI. Any bank looking to finance the acquisition of your business will look at least at three years of earnings (this is not owner benefit) to decide how much they can lend. If a buyer cannot get enough money from a bank, you have two choices. Seller financing, or sell for less. Good books and records will allow your business to sell fast, for a high valuation, and be financed with third party financing. ALL GOOD FOR YOU. #10 Keep good books and records.
  16. 16. Increase Owner Benefits/Earnings Keep good books and records Increase sales over a two year period Have management in place Have inventory/assets documented, controlled and managed Make capital improvements or investments now (not too much) Have excess capacity to grow Plan to exit Hire a professional (Broker* as well as accountant)
