 What’s it Worth? Determining and Increasing the Value of Your Business

Planning for the future? Thinking about selling? Getting buyout offers? Even if you aren’t planning to sell your business anytime soon, understanding the value of your business is critical to meeting your financial goals for retirement. A business valuation can help identify any gap between today's value and the value you want to recoup when you exit.

Business valuation is not an exact science. In this webinar you will learn about different approaches to valuation, key factors that impact business value, how to prepare for a valuation, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business valuation, and what you can do to build value and meet your financial goals.
