Estimating a Sales Value for a Business

& Why a Business Owner Should Know Years Before They Retire
Tuesday, November 30
4-5 p.m. In-Person

Lisa Cribben, Partner, Business Valuation and Transaction Support Services, Wipfli
Cameron Karlen, Valuation, Forensic & Litigation Services Manager, Wipfli

The value of a business often comprises 80% or more of an owner’s retirement assets. Business owners can often have an unrealistic idea about what a buyer would pay for their business. If a business owner overestimates the value of their business in their plans for retirement, the business owner may not be able to retire when originally planned. Understanding the estimated value a buyer would pay is important for retirement planning.

This presentation and discussion will cover the key considerations a buyer will evaluate and how business appraisers can help you define a realistic sale price for a business.

This event will be held in-person at The Urban Hub, 340 N Broadway, Suite 200, Green Bay, WI 54303

All individuals are welcome to participate in activities and events offered by the Institute.
