Income Statement Adjustment (Add-Back)Tracing

Cash flow is one of the primary drivers in determining the value of a business, therefore proper support for your cash flow calculation is the key to an accurate business valuation. Our Income Statement Adjustment Report identifies qualified add-backs along with proper supporting documentation that traces those expenses back to the financial statements being used in a cash flow analysis. Additionally, the report will calculate the total cash flow for both Seller’s Discretionary Cash Flow (SDE) and Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation & Amortization (EBITDA). (Identified cash flow can be utilized in the valuation report).

This service is a great tool to Strengthen Credit Memorandums, Lender Underwriting Packages or to help M&A Advisors, Business Appraisers, and Business Owners calculate supportable cash flow as part of Exit Planning.

Working Capital Analysis

Our staff of appraisers and financial professionals will analyze your financial statements and develop the specific monthly working capital needs of the Company, which helps you identify the required working capital needs for a proposed post-close deal structure using the last three years and a trailing twelve-month period as a baseline. Our staff will look for and identify large fluctuations in the company’s history, as well as monthly operating cash flow needs. Our final analysis will report our findings along with working capital averages compared to the subject company’s industry.

This service is a great tool that can be used by BDOs, Credit Analysts, and Bank Underwriters to mitigate credit risks and better understand the true needs of their client’s liquidity in order to help them better structure new or existing revolving lines of credit.
