Business Valuation

Waiting to value your business at the time of sale is like doing retirement planning the day you retire.

It is Action’s mission to educate our customers on the importance of knowing their company’s business value, and use that knowledge to enhance that value over the short and long term. This is accomplished by providing baseline business valuations and identifying the key performance indicators (KPI's) that, when managed pro-actively, are most likely to take their valuation to the next level.

This business valuation program helps our customers answer questions such as:

  1. What is my business worth today?
  2. How many different types of business valuation are there and which are most important to me?
  3. What are the primary drivers of my company's business valuation?
  4. What is the difference between an "Asset Sale" and a "Stock Sale"?
  5. How does my company compare to others in the same industry in terms of key performance indicators involving liquidity, solvency, activity, and profitability?

Contact Action Creative at 412-884-2212 for a business valuation and consultation on how to grow the value of your business.
