Valuation & Pricing Services

Both buyers and sellers need confidence in the value of the business in order for a fair market transaction to occur. Navigator Associates uses a variety of approaches to value a business and to develop an effective Sell-Side fair market asking price strategy.  In the broadest terms, key elements contributing to valuation and pricing strategy encompass:

  • Quality of both tangible and intangible assets
  • Demonstrated growth
  • General operating metrics such as operating margins
  • Income history
  • Growth prospects for the industry
  • Management depth
  • Quality of product and services
  • Intellectual property
  • Customer portfolio and concentration
  • Competitive environment and positioning
  • Replacement & substitution issues
  • New market entrance & product development issues
  • It is important to note that valuation and sale price are not always the same. Navigator works to uncover the difference between the purely stand-alone financial value of a business and its potential strategic value to a particular potential buyer.  Navigator is highly skilled at determining the strategic motivation behind a buyer’s interest, to determine the maximum asking price.
