BROKER’S ESTIMATE OF PRICE (BEP)
WHAT IS A BEP?
A Broker’s Estimate of Price is a letter that walks through the logic of how brokers would price the business for the best price and terms in a timely sale. A Broker’s Estimate of Price is NOT a “valuation” and should not be represented as one prepared by a professional appraiser.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
A Broker’s Estimate of Price is based on three methods:
- Broker’s Rule of Thumb by Industry; for example – the general cash flow formula for the contract manufacturing industry
- Cash flow or SDE multiples based on analysis of business financials and tax documents
- A limited review of published market data on sales of comparable businesses
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT?
From the business owner’s perspective, the benefits of BEPs are that they:
- Provide market intelligence based on real-world broker experience
- Can be delivered quickly, and involve very little work by the client
- Serve as a great starting point prior to going to market, in setting expectations and framing the pricing argument with buyers
- Serve as a valuable tool for financial planning and for business planning, in anticipation of a future wealth event
If you have a client who would like to understand how a business broker would price their business for the best terms, contact us today. Our team connects with a handful of veteran business brokers to review each BEP and weigh their opinion for the most accurate, reliable product.
