You may think increasing the value of your business is something you only need to address if you’re thinking of selling. But focusing on adding value will bring significant advantages whatever stage you’re at on your entrepreneurial journey.
Whether your business is a start-up or well-established, the process of adding value will:
- Make your business more stable, sustainable & profitable
- Increase your borrowing potential & make it easier to raise investment
- Give you options. Your business will be more attractive to potential buyers – but if you’re not ready to sell, you can sleep well knowing you have an asset, you can turn into cash whenever you want!
You may have no plans to sell and intend to keep growing your business, or you might be considering selling on or transferring ownership to someone else in your family. Either way, it’s essential to understand the factors that positively – and negatively impact the value of your company.
For your business to be valuable, even sellable one day, there’s a lot more to consider than just the bottom line. For example, can you be sure your customers will continue buying from you? Are you overly dependent on a key customer or employee? Is there room for a new competitor to damage your margins? If you took an extended break, could your company survive without you?
In our September webinar, How to Increase the Value of Your Business, Rob Pickering of ActionCOACH Reading and Wokingham will take you through the key steps to increasing the value of your business using the Value Builder System.
Who Is It For?
Our webinar is for any business owner who wants to build a more secure future for themselves by driving up the value of their company. It’s definitely not just for owners who may be thinking of selling their business.
What Will You Learn?
In this webinar, Rob will discuss in detail the eight key drivers that determine the value of your business:
- Financial Performance
Your history of producing revenue & profit
- Switzerland Structure
How dependent your business is on any one employee, customer or supplier
- Recurring Revenue
The proportion & quality of recurring revenue
- Customer Satisfaction
The likelihood of your customers re-purchasing & referring you
- Growth Potential
Your likelihood to grow your business in the future & at what rate
- Valuation Seesaw
Whether your business is a cash suck or a cash spigot
- Monopoly Control
How well differentiated your business is from competitors in your industry
- Hub & Spoke
How your business would perform if you took an extended break
Rob will explain how each of these drivers impacts the value of your business. He will help you to understand what actions you can take to accentuate those factors that are adding value and reduce those that are undermining it.
