When a Valuation is Unnecessary

David Bookbinder

Valuation Expert

A business appraisal can actually lift the value of your company, which would be useful, particularly when you know you want to sell your business. However, did you know that a valuation is not always necessary and — according to this segment’s guest — not always recommended when you know you are getting ready to sell your business. 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.
