Business Valuation Services


"Yesterday" was the right time to have an independent business valuation for your company by an independent business valuer. And tomorrow will be late. The need for a business valuation arises for several reasons: incoming investors, financial strategy, business planning, business sale, founder exit, public offering, or net worth certification.



Fund Raise

Raising money is a cumbersome multi-stage process while establishing a valuation is one of the most important steps along the way. Valuation matters to entrepreneurs as it determines the dilution in the company in exchange for fund raise.



Sale of the business

As an entrepreneur, if you are considering selling your venture to a third party, a valuation that is prepared before the beginning of the negotiation will put you in a position of power. When you have a good idea of the value of a business, you can avoid wasting time looking at deals that do not make financial sense.



Mergers, Acquisition & Amalgamation

Having a buy-sell agreement in place between multiple owners ensures a smooth transition of a business in events such as death or disputes among the owners. Entrepreneur needs to understand the value of the business to determine the dilution of equity shares.



ESOP plans

If the company is considering establishing an ESOP, a feasibility study is needed and a key part of that study is the valuation of the business. While publicly-traded companies can use their market values for the ESOP, privately-held corporations need an appraisal to know how much they can deduct for the contribution of shares to the plan.



Regulatory purposes

Regulatory Valuations are required under Companies Act, Income Tax Act, FEMA, SEBI Regulations, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code, IND-AS (Financial Reporting). Starters' CFO helps companies to navigate this environment of changing laws and regulations by offering skilled expertise for forming strategy and defending valuation positions.



Decision Making

An owner may want a business appraisal to help decide the near- and long-term strategies. While the investment in an appraisal is meaningful and not undertaken lightly, an owner at an inflection point in the business or his/her personal life may need the information to decide whether to sell, expand, gift, strategically plan or go in another direction.

How much should an investor pay for an interest in your company? It depends on what the company is worth. In order to set a price for an investor to buy into your company, a business valuation must be made.

While value can be set using certain key metrics (e.g., a multiple of earnings), an appraisal may be preferable (e.g., if you’re bringing in investors who are acquiring a substantial interest in the company).

Frequently Asked Questions


What is valuation?
In simple terms, startup valuation is the process of quantifying the worth of a company, aka its valuation. During the seed funding round, an investor pours in funds in a startup in exchange for a part of the equity in the company. This is why valuation is important for entrepreneurs as it helps in determining the equity which they have to give to a seed investor in exchange of funds.
What affects a start-up's valuation?
The most important factors are usually traction, reputation, prototype, pre-valuation revenue, the distribution channel and the industry.
What's the importance of getting a start-up valuation?
Valuation matters to every startup because it helps in deciding the amount of equity an entrepreneur has to give to an investor in exchange for requisite funds. This implies that if a company has a higher valuation, it has to give a lesser amount of equity or shares to an investor in exchange for seed investment. Not only for entrepreneurs, but startup valuation is also vital from investors’ point of view because it helps them gauge the amount of return they will receive on their invested amount.

How to value an idea stage startup?
If your startup is just an idea, then it might worth almost nothing. People have ideas all the time and unless you have a clear plan then you can’t put a value on the idea itself. Many great ideas fail because of poor execution.
Business plan written, how to value a pre-MVP startup?
If you have prepared the right business plan, a catchy pith deck, and your financial forecasts, then your startup will have more of a fixed value than an idea. However, debating the value in this case is very difficult because you don’t have a product nor do you have any income generated. At this stage the valuation will depend on the attractiveness of the idea, how good the business plan, monetization strategy is written, background of founders and their ability to execute the plan they have put, and the speculated risks.
