WHAT WE DO
ValueX3, the breakthrough process can boost your company’s maximum acquisition value, was developed by Business Valuation Center.
If your business is part of the innovation economy, we offer you seven reasons why you should consider BVC:
Our Primary Mission: BVC’s primary mission is to provide focused valuation expertise to the companies and industries driving the Innovation Economy, from startups seeking new investors to mature, private companies contemplating an exit strategy.
Our Scope of Services: Our valuations have been confidently relied upon for merger, acquisition, financial and tax reporting purposes, as well as for dispute resolution, litigation support and fairness opinions.
Extensive Track Record: Valuation conclusions are key strategic assets. Selecting the right valuation expert to make that critical determination of value is a crucial management decision. Having served more than 5,000 information technology and high-growth venture-financed companies, BVC’s principals have mastered both the art and the science of valuation in the Innovation Economy, as defined by the industry’s investment, financial and legal communities.
Authorities in the Industry: BVC was entrusted as the primary valuation advisor to the Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) Program — the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) $24-billion family of private equity and venture capital funds — for more than five years. The SBIC Program provides funding to over 400 equity and debt funds. These funds have portfolios reflecting more than 4,500 investments, most of which are in companies driving the Innovation Economy. This honor and opportunity to serve the SBA gave BVC considerable insight into the valuation needs and concerns of the private equity market.
Strong Leadership: Founded over a decade ago by Ron Everett, a valuation expert with more than 27 years of experience, and Ray Ghelardi, a former owner of one of the largest valuation firms in the country, with over 30 years of experience dealing with complex corporate valuation issues in many industries.
Recognized Expertise: BVC was appointed for 5 years as the primary valuation advisor to the Small Business Administration in managing a $24 billion private equity portfolio involving over 400 private equity funds. In addition to valuing over 1,500 companies for the SBA, BVC was also selected to conduct an independent review and author a report on the SBA’s Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) valuation guidelines. Nearly all of BVC’s recommendations were adopted by the SBA, recognizing BVC as an unparalleled business valuation authority in the U.S. on private equity valuation—having literally re-written and modernized the valuation standards used by the federal Government itself.
Industry Pioneers: Working with startups during the earliest days of the dot-com boom, BVC was the first valuation firm to derive an industry acceptable methodology to value early stage Internet companies for IPO (Initial Public Offering) purposes. Having now performed business valuations on over 5,000 companies, including some of the most recognizable technology brands in the world, BVC has become the preferred provider of specialized, complex valuation services for companies operating in the Innovation Economy.
