Hi GAA,

If you were able to get anything higher than a 5x multiple on your net profit, I’d be incredibly impressed. Yes, valuation is subjective, and yes, it’s technically worth what someone is willing to pay, but I highly doubt you’d be able to find someone willing to pay anything more than 5x.

Now, even that 5x is a long shot. That’s really the top end you’ll get from a VC for a growing company which isn’t owner-dependent.

If you’re a tech-based company, check out some of the business brokers around who might be able to help with a valuation. I’ve used http://digitalexits.com before and they were great. They not only gave me a solid valuation but helped me find a buyer in less than months. I’ve also heard good things about https://feinternational.com/ as well, but never used them.

Hope that helps.
