Obtaining Fair Market Value

Peter C. King, VR Business Brokers/Mergers & Acquisitions, CEO

Every VR Business Sales intermediary understands the importance of fair market value when appraising a business to sell. Most business brokers merely rely on book value or the owner's best estimate; even an arbitrary discount or premium based on the type of asset involved. However, this is not correct. Through your VR Business Sales intermediary performing a business valuation, you will be able to arrive at fair market value - for  example, assets, inventory, current revenue streams and intellectual property.

I'll Show You Mine if You'll Show Me Yours: The Art of Sharing Confidential Information (When it Matters)

Michael O'Donnell of VR in Boca Raton, FL

Since I started to spend the majority of my time on mergers and acquisitions earlier this year, my use of non-disclosure agreements (NDA) has skyrocketed. I sign as many as 20 NDAs every day. The NDA is the bedrock of buying and selling companies. Without a good NDA - and it's proper treatment - no transactions would get done.

4 Things to Know About Letters of Intent

Via Axial

In the process of negotiating and structuring deal, one of the watershed steps is signing a Letter of Intent ("LOI").

Bob Burg, The Co-author of The Go-Giver

While at the new diagnostic center for some blood work, I witnessed an interesting and, unfortunately, all-too-common exchange. An elderly and rather a perturbed-looking woman approached the receptionist's desk. Attempting to be polite but assertive, she said was there "to take another test as your company lost the first one. I can't believe I had to drive all the way again because of a mistake like that." The receptionist, politely, but without any semblance of feeling or empathy said, Please fill out this form."
