Historical Comparison Method of Business Valuation

By Hoke - Last updated: Saturday, August 7, 2010 - Save & Share - Leave a Comment

This method relies on Actual Historical Sales Comparisons or ” Sales Comps” of similar businesses. Our favorite three sources of Historical Sales Comps are Pratt’s Stats, Bizcomps, The Business Reference Guide and the Bizbuysell Valuation Report.

Pratt’s Stats and Bizcomps are the most comprehensive. The Business Reference Guide and the Bizbuysell Valuation Report also provide valid Comps.

Typically no two valuation models will provide exactly the same Multiple so it can be helpful to get several comparisons from different Models which will give a range that can be averaged.
