VALUATION SERVICES

ASSEST APPROACH

Asset Approach values the assets of your business minus the liabilities. Some of the methods in this approach are book value, excess earnings method, asset accumulation method to name a few. However these values usually mean very little to the market value of most operating businesses. For the most part the asset approach does not properly represent the value of an ongoing business that has positive earnings.

MARKET APPROACH

Simply defined, it is much like a real estate comparable method. Like businesses in size and industry sell for similar valuations. There is the guideline publicly traded company method or the merger and acquired company method (private sale databases). There are many databases we can research to find multiples of gross sales and earnings to compare to your business. This method can be very reliable in most cases and is a strong indicator of value.

INCOME APPROACH

Your business is worth the present value of the income stream it will bring to an investor. There are several complicated methods including the discounted future earnings method as well as several capitalization methods. This approach is also a strong indicator of what a business with positive income is worth. These methods rely on future projections and growth rates to decide what the business may be worth. If that is true then why do most people multiply or capitalize historical earnings to arrive at a value? Because the assumption is the buyer will maintain the current income levels and they are a reasonable indication of future earnings.

BELOW IS A LIST OF SOME OF THE CRITERIA NECESSARY TO PURCHASE A BUSINESS THROUGH AN E-2 INVESTOR VISA

  • Investment of your capital including funds and other assets must be at risk in a real and active commercial enterprise with the objective of generating a profit. (A real and active commercial enterprise is one that provides services or goods for profit.) You must prove that the capital invested is from a legal source
  • You’ll need a detailed business plan over a five-year period and be able to prove that you have staff other than yourself to work at the US business. It is possible to get a case approved if the financial projections can show strong economic increases even if the business is currently not profitable
  • The funds you invest in the US business must be your own, although they can be gifted
  • The funds invested must be substantial compared to the total cost to buy the business. It is possible that part of the funds could be set up as a loan depending on the total amount of money invested and the type of deal
  • The E-2 investor must own at least 50% of the US business to come in as an E-2 investor
  • The US Company you will buy or develop must have two full-time employees usually beside the main investor. There are exceptions to this, and it can depend on the country you are from.
