David Bookbinder is a valuation expert at GBQ Consulting and contributing writer to The Huffington Post. On this installment of “Deal Talk,” David explains to Jeff Allen when and why valuations may not be needed. He’ll also talk about a few things you absolutely will need in order to get the best deal for your company.
