What We Believe

  • Diligent, professionally competent, fair and accurate financial analysis valuation for clients.
  • Every firm's value comes from their secret special ways of doing business, Intellectual Property, IP.
  • Know their secrets know their value, no secrets no value.
  • CBA finds, protects, and values company secrets.
  • I believe that the valuation process will answer every business question you have, or will ever have.
  • Valuation answers WHY others place emotional and financial value on why, how and what you do.
  • When you understand WHY your company is worth X, suddenly your company is worth X plus Y. You now understand WHY you have value.
  • Understanding your WHY, leads you to create more WHY naturally because your valuation process thoughts continue to drive improving your actions. David A. Dinsmore, CFP

How I keep up to date on valuation topics.

Annual continuing education requires 40 hours for professional memberships. Individual projects often dictate unique research studies.

These sources are used build the strengths of valuation report formats and the firm's library of resources.

Then we will sit down and lay out a solution. And, I will show you precisely how the process worked for other service firms just like yours.

What I Don't Do

I don't do taxes, no bookkeeping, no investment sales, no auditing, no controllership, or the host of other accounting things. I am not a CPA, accountant, historian, or a business broker. While I could do these things (and have done most), they would distract from what I do and do best. And that's valuing professional service firms.
