How to Close the Valuation Gap

How to Close the Valuation Gap

Matt Turpin


If you’ve ever had your business appraised, you probably had a figure in mind as to what your company was worth. It was only after the valuation consultant left you with their report that you found out just how far off base your estimate was from reality. That’s what the pros call the “valuation gap.” The good thing is that you can close that gap by raising the value of your business. You simply need an action plan. Matt Turpin, a Certified Valuation Analyst and M & A Advisor at Carr, Riggs and Ingram LLC, returns for his 2nd visit on “Deal Talk.” This time, he’ll share some insights about how you can improve your company’s value after the appraiser has come and gone.
