Some consider the analysis of company-specific risk to be one of the most influential factors in determining value. Perhaps that is why more emphasis is placed on this now than ever before. “When assessing industry specific risk, the analyst’s goal is to prepare a thoughtful and meaningful analysis that yields a credible conclusion,” says Mark Gottlieb of MSG Accountants, Consultants and Business Valuators in New York City. “However, many reports are still written with very scant industry information—sometimes just the SIC code description.”

A proper industry-specific analysis and presentation can be a “real budget killer.” Knowing how to approach this aspect of a business valuation report can be a great tool to you and your firm.
