Lawrence Moore, president of GAI: Gibson and Associates, Inc. earns Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) credential with National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts® (NACVA), which is the accreditation body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence.  The CVA designation is granted only to individuals who have met a high bar of prerequisite qualifications and passed a substantive examination, testing to the understanding of theory and the application of skills in the field of private company business valuation.

Lawrence joined the team at GAI in early 2020 and continues the legacy Bill Gibson started nearly 30 years ago.

How can a CVA help you?

  • Accurate Value Determination:   The result of an inaccurate value determination, regardless of whether it is high or low, generally leads to undesirable consequences.
  • Careful Analysis: Determining the true value of a business enterprise requires a careful analysis of two primary components that make up value: tangible assets such as real estate, machinery, and furniture used by the business; and various intangible assets such as business or personal goodwill.
  • Understanding the Business:  Elements of the Company’s dynamics affect the risk of ownership in a particular enterprise, and risk directly impacts value.
  • Sorting through a Complex Process:  A series of calculations and formulas are applied to arrive at the ultimate conclusion of value.

What’s the benefit of getting a valuation for your business?

One of the first comments we hear from a seller is I have no idea what my business is worth.  We provide Calculation Reports, which are an extensive review of the financial history of the business, to determine the market price.  This report is useful as a benchmark to expand or grow the company as well as develop an exit plan.  Buyers who have targeted a business to purchase find the report a key tool in determining a reasonable offer.
