Common Reasons for Valuing Veterinary Practices
Buy-Sell Related Purposes

It is essential to establish a value for a practice which is honest and fair to both the buyer and the seller. This value maximizes the return on the seller's investment while being affordable for the buyer. Each practice valuation must include a Justification for Purchase. This justification utilizes proforma cash flow statements to ensure that the purchaser will have sufficient cash flow to operate the practice and satisfy financial obligations. The vendor should exhibit equal interest in this pro forma, since the vendor often finances a large portion of the sale price.

Management Related

Practice valuations are a superb management tool. Regularly performed valuations call attention to the drivers of practice value. Attention paid to these value drivers will afford systematic increments and eventual maximization of a practice's worth.

Legal/Tax Related Reasons

A well designed and supported valuation process is often incorporated into partnership/shareholder agreements, buy-sell documents and other legal documents where future practice valuations are likely.

Valuations are also frequently performed for tax planning purposes, the development of exit strategies.

Litigation Reasons

Legal actions, such as marriage dissolution and stockholder disputes often require a practice valuation. A comprehensive and complete valuation which complies with the requirements of the courts is critical.

Here is a brief description of the valuation process.
