Client Success: Uncovering Critical Accounting Discrepancies During Pre-Sale Business Valuation

The owner of a small company was approached by a competitor who wanted to purchase his business. An offer was made, but the owner, having never considered selling, was unsure if the offer was reasonable. The owner engaged Cendrowski Corporate Advisors to determine the value of his company and if the offer should be considered.

Our business valuation team thoroughly reviewed the company’s books and records and analyzed its history. In the process of our review, we discovered discrepancies between the owner’s statements and what the books showed. The owner disclosed issues concerning his prior accountant and in-house bookkeeper and that both had been replaced. We analyzed the discrepancies and subsequently adjusted the income statements to reflect accurate operating results.

Our findings enabled us to determine the true value of the company. Upon completion of the valuation, the owner decided it was not in his best interest to accept the offer.
