Business Evaluation

Making the decision to sell your business is one of the biggest decisions that you will have to make. It seems like an all-or-nothing situation and in most cases, the perceived risks far outweigh the good stuff!
Will having all of the facts on the table before you have to decide whether you want to sell or not be a great help? We know it will; that is why we have developed our evaluation solutions.

Our business evaluation and marketability assessment report provides a comprehensive analysis to ensure you can make a calculated decision on if or when to engage the market. These reports will answer the many questions you may be facing, such as:

  • What is the value of my business?

  • Is my business ready to sell?

  • Are there buyers out there looking for a business like mine?

  • Can I sell a portion of my business, or must I sell the whole thing?

  • What do I do if I have a shareholder misalignment on selling my business?


On completion, you will have a thorough understanding of the value, risk, timing, and acquirer appetite for your business prior to approaching the market.

Business Evaluation and Market Assessment (BMA)

The BMA process has been designed to provide Mid-Market businesses (a turnover of R100m+) with options around how an equity transaction can grow their business, weather the economic storm and diversify personal wealth away from the business.

Our BMA is a thorough evaluation of a business, comprising the following elements:

Corporate & Advisory (turnover of R500m+)
Corporate Evaluation & Marketability Assessment (CEMA)

The CEMA process has been designed to provide large private and listed clients (a turnover of R500m+) with an analysis of the business through the eyes of an acquirer. Client performance metrics are compared against the broader market to determine market attractiveness, valuations, market approach strategies and the right acquirers and strategic partners as part of a comprehensive ‘deep-dive’ into your business.
