Business Appraisals

Specialists in business appraisals and valuations
of closely held companies. 

Selling a Business

Your company is  probably your largest asset.  A business appraisal for selling a company just makes good sense.

Buying a Company

Smart entrepreneurs routinely retain Quantive to understand price early and gain a roadmap for impending price negotiations.

SBA Loans

A core part of our practice is preparing business appraisals for SBA loans, as required by the SBA SOP.


Quantive performs business valuations in support of buy-sell agreements, to include buy-ins and -outs, as well as shareholder disputes.

Estate and Gift

We perform business valuations in support of various gifting strategies, as well as in support of probate requirements.

Litigation Support

We provide litigation support for shareholder disputes, lost profits, shareholder oppression, commercial litigation, and various other reasons.

409(a) Appraisals

Issuing options or equity compensation? Quantive performs appraisals for 409(a) reporting requirements.

Exit Planning

Thinking about retirement?  Planning for a sale?  A business appraisal typically is the starting point of any sound exit planning process.

Our Process

We follow a consistent business appraisal process
to ensure consistent results

01. Define Scope

We work with you to understand the scope of required work and document in our engagement letter.

04. Management Interview

We conduct an interview and potentially a site visit with management.  Here we’ll review our initial data and really work to understand the risk profile of the business.

02. Data Collection

We’ll provide you a document request list that includes the initial documents we need to get started. Learn more.

05. Analysis and Modeling

Once we have all data required and have worked with management we’ll dig in on our analysis using a variety of valuation models.

03. Initial Analysis

Once we have documents in we’ll complete data entry and a quick  first pass analysis to prep for management interviews.

06. Document Findings

We document our findings – the deliverable is typically a certified valuation report that details all of our assumptions, calculations, and results.


We complete hundreds of
valuation engagements each year.
