Valuation Calculator

Calculate the Value Range of your Tech or Internet Company

Ever wonder what your eCommerce, Amazon, SaaS or Digital Business is worth? We can help.

Every Tech, Internet, Website and Digital business is different. Each business has hundreds of variables that differentiate it from others, and those variables can have wide varieties of impact on the potential selling price of that business. Because of this, no online valuation calculator could ever give an accurate depiction of what a company is worth. However, what this can do is give business owners a basic understanding of what to expect when they begin their conversations with our M&A firm. Our skilled brokers will dive deep into the company’s financials, find all relevant KPIs and Value Propositions, and ultimately find ways to maximize the sale of the business by making it the most attractive possible while at market.

How this Calculator Works

The formula we use in this calculation is based on a Multiple of Earnings that is commonly used in valuing many tech companies. Our proprietary algorithm built into this calculator takes into account the world’s largest database of SMB, Lower Middle Market and Middle Market Deal Flow, and includes a blend of valuation methods, including Discounted Cash Flow, Future Maintainable Earnings, Relative, Historical Earnings, Asset Valuation, Comparable Company Analysis, Precedent Transaction Analysis and Straightline TTM Analysis. Our goal in creating this calculator was to provide business owners with a simple tool to help peg a value range for their business.

For a more personalized and in depth business valuation, which almost always results in higher value ranges than provided by this valuation tool (due to the fact that each business is unique and usually has its own value drivers), we provide a Free Business Valuation and Consultation with a Business Broker that is an expert in your particular business model.

See our Business Valuation Definitions for an explanation of the factors involved in this calculation.

Step 1: Determine Discretionary Earnings

Discretionary Earnings are made up of the following: (a) the Net Earnings of the business on an accrual basis, (b) plus the reduction of Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, (c) plus all of the expenses (add backs) that are considered personal to ownership, and (d) plus any one time business expenses that a buyer would never have again on this business. Note that the user should only adjust for expenses that can actually be seen on the Income Statement used for this valuation. For the current year, please estimate all financial information for the full 12 months to ensure a proper valuation. We recommend that you consider only using modest growth in this calculation, since we will take this into account in the calculator through our Q&A Process below.

Step 2: Determine Multiple of Earnings Factors

The next step in this process is to further define a few high-level factors specific to your particular company. This will help our system provide you with an Enterprise Value Range more closely aligned to a company similar to yours in size and attributes. In this section, we look at the tech vertical you operate within (choose the one most closely related to your business model), the number of staff members in your company (including Virtual Assistants, Employees, and Contractors, but not including Third Party Companies), infrastructure, growth, risk profiles, and value propositions. As noted above, this is in no way represents an exhaustive list of factors ultimately necessary to formulate an accurate valuation on your company, but it will help give you an idea of the general value range a company like yours would fall within.
