Business leaders who know their company’s value at any given moment are more likely to seize the competitive edge―especially these days, when adding digital capabilities can dramatically affect value. But most businesses drop the ball because traditional valuation is complex, time-consuming, and expensive.

Not anymore. Reed Phillips, Chairman of Oaklins International, one of the world’s largest mid-market M&A firms, lays out a straightforward method for gaining a clear understanding of your company’s current value in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. He walks you through three easy steps:

  • Identify the key value drivers behind the company’s value and rate them to develop a Value Driver Score.
  • Perform a careful examination of comparable businesses, including their market-rate multiples for revenue and EBITDA.
  • Put the results together to determine the value of the business.

QuickValue provides a clear, reliable way to determine your business’s value in real time―transforming valuation from a reactive, defensive burden into an active, indispensable part of daily operations. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, owner, executive, consultant, accountant, or M&A advisor, QuickValue provides the method you need to know the value of any company at any time.
