Business Valuation and 
Transaction Structuring Software
for Small to Middle Market Companies

Easy to use.  
Simply enter one page of data from tax returns or accounting statements, answer a few questions and make some decisions and the software does the rest.  It couldn't be easier or more simple.  The program, although years in development, will provide your valuation in minutes.

Size does matter
One size does not fit everyone; and neither does one approach to business valuation.  That's why EZbizPRICER 2.0 produces values, transaction structures and fairness testing for the three size categories of private businesses - all at the same time.  The three Size and Business Structure categories can be briefly described as follows:
  • Middle Market -- Generally Private companies with well defined Corporate structure and earnings in the low millions
  • Mid-Size -- Private companies with Corporate structure developing.  Owner has delegated many management functions to others - earnings typically from $250,000 to the early Millions.  
  • Main Street -- Commonly referred to as "Mom and Pop" - Business owner wears essentially all the hats - Earnings usually under $250,000

15 valuation methods
Yes, EZbizPRICER 2.0 simultaneously produces three business valuations using 15 valuation methods. The EZbizPRICER 2.0 approach insures you that you are using valuation methods that are appropriate for the business involved.  

Transaction Structuring

Determine a Fair Price and Terms for the business - You can perform countless "What if" scenarios and calculate scores of possible transaction structures quickly and easily to determine a Fair Price.  It's not necessarily the price you pay that's most important but rather - it's the terms.  Make sure the business and you can afford the terms so the business can stay sold.

Fairness Test and Justification of Purchase Price
Make sure the business can afford to pay: 

  1. The acquisition debt service and 

  2. You a reasonable wage, 

  3. That your Rate of Return is commensurate with the risk involved.   This is a double check on whether or not the price is fair.

Designed to be used by non-financial professionals
Don't let the ease of use fool you - EZbizPRICER 2.0 is a powerful program designed for the business owner, business buyer or advisors who needs to know how to price and structure the sale of a company.  It is not designed to produce a 50 page report that CPAs, MBAs and other Consultants need in order to justify their multi-thousand dollar fees.

No financial expertise or specialized knowledge is needed and  EZbizPRICER uses 
Microsoft Excel™  so there isn't a new software program to learn.

Business Owners: 
Don't accept too little! Use EZbizPRICER to determine:  The most probable price and terms - The level of Seller Financing required, if any, to Maximize Value - What's the CASH price difference, if any? - How to increase value without increasing declared profits,
