Reviewed by Sean C on I am the CEO of a billboard company. I do not have a financial or accounting background and I use the investment and business valuation tool to evaluate and prioritize investment, construction and acquisition opportunities. The tool provides robust functionality and allows me to evaluate and prioritize multiple projects at the same time. I can also compare projected outcomes to actual outcomes. It is functional and easy to use. I highly recommend this tool.
Reviewed by Mike on I found this business valuation template very useful and saved me a lot of time in reviewing old notes and data, to remember how to put an investment presentation together.
Reviewed by Lugarel on It is a compact and complete tool that may be customized to your needs. It offers multiple valuation options for different circumstances, including EVA. Comparison of 'before' and 'after' tabs can be used to obtain intangible valuation results. Graphics are nice and professional and gives a step by step process for presenting records of the main cash flow elements as fixed assets and financing. If it were possible to customize adding up to five more years for the flow for instance, would be even more useful.
Reviewed by Jim on This is a very nice tool and a must have time saver for anyone looking at new business opportunities.

It takes an average knowledgeable person no more than 1 and a half hours to create a very enlightening and presentable valuation case. It would only make me happier if there was a simpler and more user friendly way for laying eyes on the user guide. Bottom line: highly recommended.
