An owner of an agricultural business recently asked us for help as he values his business and plans for family succession.

The Reference USA online directories  provided a list of competitors, with benchmark estimates of company size and financials, to aid in company valuation. 

Other online library resources such as the Small Business Resource Center,  provided articles and guides on succession planning and business valuation including a comprehensive guide to the various ways to value a company and info. on selling a business from the Encyclopedia of Small Business .
