2015 Valuation Survey

Oct 01, 2015

Val-15If you’re an owner of an A/E/P or environmental consulting firm, you can’t risk not knowing the value of your business. Whether it’s for external purposes, such as a firm sale or merge, or internal purposes, such as an ownership transition or ESOP purposes, all firm owners should know what their investments are worth. It’s one of the most confounding decisions faced by privately held A/E/P and environmental consulting firms – how to value their enterprises. This decision can have far-reaching implications, impacting both the firm and its shareholders on a financial, organizational, and cultural level. In an effort to provide information and insight on this important topic, for the past 23 years Zweig Group has researched and published this definitive survey of how privately held firms in the A/E/P and environmental consulting industry value themselves. The purpose of this survey is not only to provide benchmarking data on industry valuation norms, but also to further the reader’s understanding of how business value is defined, how it is determined, and perhaps most importantly, how it is created. The survey covers everything from the reasons that you need a valuation to how to maximize your firm’s value. Do you know how much your business is worth? If you're an owner or manager in an architecture, engineering, or environmental firm, you can't escape valuation questions. Click here to get the best information on your biggest investment.
