Business Value

Equity value is the ultimate goal for every business owner. In a sale it has to reflect fair market value to the seller but on the other hand it has to justify financing and the opportunity for a fair return on investment to a buyer.  Eighty/20 Advisors coordinates value creation and protection by effectively managing company resources.


Business planning and growth are dependent on a clear perspective of the company’s past performance, market size and ability to access the market opportunity. Convergent analysis and development of appropriate actions lead to successful execution. ..

Plan Development - Few companies consider market segmentation and sales as their core strengths.  Your firm could benefit from our experience.  Our process includes 80/20 analysis to identify where you make most of your profit and where you incur most of your costs, review of SWOT and other operational metrics.

Owners – Your business probably represents 75% of your net worth and most of your income. If not protected, events beyond your control could destroy 30% of your firm’s value in the blink of an eye. We enable you to protect this core asset, determine a finance-able valuation, and position yourself for a well-managed sale or succession. Our process includes operations audits, bench marking, and risk assessment. The exit process is outlined in our guidebook, “Get Out Alive”.

Acquirers  - Technology and management  efficiencies enable profitable management of ever larger firms.   Eighty/20 Advisors assesses your company’s philosophy, capacity  and bench strength to absorb a target firm and counsels on the required resources, match of business market space and structure.
