Putting a value on your business – what is a business valuation and when should one be performed

Wednesday, March 28 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Calgary

When speaking with business owners, many indicate that they have thought of having their business valued professionally, but never pursued it. The reasons vary from cost, to the thought that you only do it when you’re going to sell, or simply that they think they already know the value.

Whatever the rationale, it generally comes down to a lack of understanding of what a valuation is, and how it might benefit them as a business owner in making informed decisions about the future of their business. Join Dave Laycraft Partner with Catalyst’s Corporate Advisory Group here in Calgary as he explores the 5 W’s of a business valuation:

WHAT is a business valuation?

WHO performs business valuations?

WHEN should I consider having my business valued?

WHY should I get my business valued?

WHERE should I go once my business has been valued?
