Business valuation is the complex process of estimating the value of a business or an interest in a business. To accurately value a business, the appraiser must take many factors into account, including, but by no means limited to, the business’s financial history, its future expectations, its management and work force, its customer base, its location, competition, the economic climate, the nature and stability of the industry in which the business operates, and statistics and other data on companies with characteristics similar to that of the subject business. Mr. Teichner is accredited in business valuations (ABV), is a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA®), and is a Master Analyst in Financial Forensics™ (MAFF®) with a subspecialty in business valuations in litigation.
