Company valuations are the talk of the town. We wanted to get an understanding of how much emphasis business owners are placing on company valuation, what drives or stalls it and if it's really going up for UK SMEs.
We’ve identified that while many business owners consider company valuation to be a top priority, few are substantially increasing theirs. They do however acknowledge that the right kind of finance can really help drive that number.
Our conclusion: it’s imperative that business owners stay focused on their product or service offering and ensure the fundamentals are right first. This is as much about managing cash flow and working capital as it is about having the right people in the right roles. When you get the basics in place, the rest will take care of itself.
