The Twelve31 Advisors Assessment

Step One (the Assessment) is designed for business owners who are:
  • Ready to sell now.
  • Currently in the process of selling and would like a second opinion.
  • Exploring the possibility of selling and want to review options and decide if it makes sense to sell now or in the future.
  • Looking to sell in the future and would like to prepare for an eventual sale.
Once we assess your business, you can decide between these options:
  • Sell now, based on the current condition of the business.
  • Sell now and implement the plan while in the process of selling.
  • Wait to sell and begin implementing the plan.

Our initial research and analysis will help us assess your business with an objective eye. We can also identify areas in your business that need to be strengthened to maximize the sales price.

Our review of your business is an external, unbiased evaluation of your business’s worth on the open market, calculated by grading your company against key factors. We’ll determine the value gap between what your business is currently worth and its potential worth. We’ll also show you steps you can take to leave on your terms while receiving the sales price you deserve.

Our process helps you discover the important presale steps you should take to guarantee a successful sale, either now or if you decide to sell your business in the future.
