Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:
Who is this for?
Business owners with annual revenues between $300K - $20M that will eventually want to sell their business; they want to understand the current market value and sellability of their company as well as strategies for increasing them so that they can maximize their chances of a successful and lucrative exit.
I can update my Exit Report?
Yes! Send in your year-end financials and we'll update the report.
Can this be used for Litigation or IRS Audits?
No. You will need to have a certified valuation/appraisal done for Court purposes or IRS audits and we would refer you to a partner that can help you. This is a MPSP (Most Probable Sales Price) approach to helping an owner understand a range of value, likely sale price, and to help set an asking price.
What valuation methods do you use?
The Exit Report compares the following approaches:
- Multiple of Earnings
- Mulitple of Income
- Discounted Cash Flow
- Comparable Transactions
How long does it take to complete?
We can complete the valuation within 10 business days of receiving the financials, reports, or other items we'll need to get started.
What if I don't plan to Sell?
We believe business owners should strive to have a sellable business, whether they intend to sell or not. These are the same qualities that will make it easier to transition the company to family or employees. It also makes the business a safer asset if life throws you any sudden curveballs.

“Jason was an extremely diligent, resourceful, and knowledgeable agent in helping me with the acquisition of my IT services company. He took the time to understand my goals and priorities and faithfully represented them to prospective buyers. He was organized, professional and transparent with me about what to expect at every step along the way.
I recommend him wholeheartedly, especially to first-time sellers like me.”
“We met with several brokers and Jason stood out in his emphasis on communication and his willingness to try different methods.
As it turned out, both of these ended up to be spot on.
Most importantly, our relationship with Jason resulted in the sale of our business and we were happy to have worked with him.”

“Choosing Jason as my ExitAdvisor for my business planning and exit strategy was the best decision I made. He was knowledgeable, thorough, and extremely patient with my many questions!
“Jason took the time to fully understand the multiple facets of my business to provide what I felt was an accurate valuation. After he presented the valuation of my business, he made himself available to go further in depth of how he arrived at his valuation and then thoroughly answered any questions I had.”

“I have been thinking the last couple of years on if I wanted to sell my business or just stay still. I was not sure where to start or even is my company attractive enough to be on the market and where am I with my company finances? I was really putting too much unnecessary pressure on myself because of the unknown.
I contacted Jason Pittman at ExitAdvisor during my quandary to help me figure a starting point. Jason took the time to explain his process of selling a business and more importantly to make sure that I understood every aspect of my finances and the strength that I have in my company. He also pointed out where I can turn around some of my weaknesses as well.
I had a better understanding after Jason showed me his findings in all the information that he had asked for and turned it into a small portfolio of what it would take to get top dollar and to increase the value of my company whether I was going to sell or not. This was the first time in fifteen years that I felt strong about running and increasing my finances in my adventure.
I decided not to sell and with Jason’s suggestions we are making our company stronger for when the time comes to sell! ExitAdvisor has made our company even better than I could imagine!! ”
