52_throwing_moneyOK, everyone has heard about a few huge deals for technology companies over the last several years.  But business owners rarely receive a premium for their business.

Buyers will look at all of the important factors such as cash flow, key employees in place, profit margins and prospects for future growth, to name just a few.  Then they will try to purchase the business for the best deal possible.

Business owners should consider having a valuation performed by a professional and then begin preparations to justify top dollar for all of their years of hard work.
