The DVSCORE should be calculated at 3 EVALUATION POINTS in the business acquisition process:
1. During the initial financial analysis of the business acquisition opportunity
2. During negotiations with the business seller
3. Before presenting to a financier
Knowing the DVSCORE at these crucial points will help guide next steps in the business acquisition process. Don’t waste time, energy and maybe money on an option that won’t work!
To attempt to “force” a business acquisition deal is unwise and risky. Devote time to find the right business to buy, and buy it the best way – beginning with a DVSCORE which indicates financial viability!
