Empowering SMEs With Our Unique Dataset

SME purchase prices are often unpublished and rarely accessible. Therefore, we survey thousands of business owners monthly about the purchase offers they receive.

Our data is global and updated monthly. This is unique. Global insights, locally tailored.

Our data forms the foundation for a systematic analysis of value drivers, which others lack. We look beyond the mere financial figures and take into account qualitative factors that are important for SMEs in general or for individual industries.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

What makes the NIMBO online company valuation special?

NIMBO is the only online company valuation based on its own extensive and current market data with real purchase offers for SMEs. NIMBO adjusts the algorithm every month in order to ensure that the valuation is aligned with actual purchase offers received. Thanks to the extensive data, NIMBO can also empirically record the influence of qualitative factors (dependencies, risks, potential, etc.) and incorporate these into the business valuation. With its 13-page evaluation, the valuation report is fairly extensive. In addition, the business valuation is specifically designed for SMEs, is kept simple and understandable even for the layperson. The business valuation does not require registration, and there is a detailed free version.

Where does NIMBO get the data for the business valuation from?

NIMBO checks with every business owner completing a valuation with us to establish whether they have received an offer to buy their business within the past two years. If so, we ask additional questions about the exact circumstances of the purchase offer: type of buyer, motivation of the buyer, valuation method, etc. Along with the other dozens of questions about the enterprise, we thus arrive at a uniquely comprehensive and up-to-date business valuation dataset.

How are qualitative factors taken into account in the valuation of a company?

Thanks to NIMBO’s uniquely comprehensive data set, we can not only observe the current market multipliers for individual industries and countries, but also how these multipliers change on average if a business outperforms others in a particular qualitative characteristic (for example, lower employee turnover).

Data protection: What happens to my data?

The data is aggregated and used anonymously to improve the NIMBO algorithm. Upon request, the data will be deleted. Under no circumstances will your data be shared with third parties.

Do I have to provide my contact details at the end of the online business valuation as required by other online evaluations?

No. All you have to do is provide an email address to which we will send the result of the business valuation. We will not use your email address for sending any further emails unless you subscribe to our newsletter.

How much time is needed for the NIMBO business valuation?

The test comprises – depending on the industry and a number of other factors – about 30 questions. It takes an average of 20 minutes to answer. The valuation usually is done some 30 – 60 minutes after the completion of the questionnaire. You will receive the report by email.

At what kind of businesses is the NIMBO business valuation aimed?

The test is particularly suitable for established, especially owner-managed SMEs with up to 100 employees. Projected values for the future should be comprehensible and realistic. The business valuation is not suitable for businesses in transition or with extraordinarily high growth expectations. A positive EBIT is required.  Even though a projected value can be used in this context of course, the test is only to a limited extent recommended for start-ups. 

Is the online calculator suitable for evaluating small businesses?

Indeed, yes. The business valuation was even developed with a focus on SMEs, and NIMBO has an exceptional data set for evaluating SMEs for which it would otherwise be quite difficult to find data.

Is the online business valuation also suitable for startups?

No. NIMBO uses the multiplier method. This is based on the status quo of the business. A startup must be evaluated with a view to the future and that is much more subjective than evaluating an established company. A simplified business valuation should not be carried out online for the evaluation of startups. Other valuation methods, such as the Discounted Cash Flow method, are more suitable.

What financial ratios must be provided for the business valuation?

Required figures are representative sales, earnings before taxes, interest and executive compensation, (estimated) extraordinary income and expenses, financial liabilities and cash holdings. A large proportion of the questions are of a qualitative nature.

Valuing a business online. Is that serious?

Evaluating a business is never an exact matter. An online business valuation can provide an initial indication and be used to complement other valuation methods. The NIMBO business valuation shows what kind of purchase offers other similar businesses are currently receiving on the market. It can, however, by no means take into account all of the factors specific to a business. Nonetheless, the business valuation offers a great first point of reference.

How reliable is it to calculate a business valuation online?

You will receive a first indication of the value of your business and will be made aware of the relevant points that determine the value. The value is not identical to the price that can actually be achieved on the market. We would be happy to advise you free of charge on the correct interpretation of your results.

What does the free version of the company value calculator include?

The free company value calculator contains the calculation of the important financial key figures, the relevant market data and the valuation result. It does not contain any more detailed information on the qualitative factors (dependencies, risks, market position, etc.) that influence the business valuation.

On what criteria should I buy the standard version of the business valuation?

With the standard version you can easily edit the given data and get a new valuation report each time. You will also gain in-depth insights into how your business compares to other companies in the same industry in terms of qualitative factors and how these affect the business value. With the Standard Version Plus, you will receive the report in PowerPoint format as well. You can therefore adapt it to your own design and integrate individual slides into other presentations.

Does the result of the business valuation of the paid version differ from the free version?

No, the business valuation calculator delivers the same result for all versions. However, the standard version offers more insight into the reasons for the valuation, especially the effects from the qualitative value drivers of the business.

Which years are taken into account when calculating the business valuation?

NIMBO by default considers the current year (forecast) as well as the two previous years for the business valuation and calculates the average from the respective financial ratios. If specific years are not representative for the future development of the company (rapid growth, new business areas, etc.), you can exclude these individually. Adjustments can be made for extraordinary expenses and income in particular years.

Should I use the NIMBO business valuation calculator when selling the business?

Evaluating a company using an online company value calculator can be particularly helpful in the early stages of considering and planning a company sale in order to understand what price might be realistic. When selling a business, however, you should definitely consult a specialist who will take a detailed look at the enterprise.

What explains the wide range of evaluations in the NIMBO business valuation?

We observe the market multiples for the respective country, the respective industry, and the respective size of the business. The lowest 25% and the highest 25% of the observed purchase offers are not taken into account. The evaluation spectrum thus ranges from 25% to 75% quantile. Where the result of the business valuation will fall within this range depends on the factors specific to the enterprise.

I am a consultant and would like to carry out business valuations on a regular basis. Is there a subscription for this?

Yes, there is. At the end of the business valuation, you can select the option of a 12-month subscription.

For how long will I be able to edit my input data in the paid version of the business valuation?

You can edit the data for up to 30 days after purchase. If that is not enough, you may contact us.

I have completed the business valuation but still have not received a result after over an hour. What should I do?

If the result cannot be found in your spam folder, please send us an email to [email protected] and we will take care of it promptly.

The email with the business valuation was received, however, it seems I can’t open the attachment?

In a few rare cases, the attachment with the business valuation may be defective. Send us an email to [email protected] and we will send you a new version promptly.

Black blocks appear when printing out the company valuation. How can I remove them?

Some printers cannot handle the transparent elements in the PDF version. It usually helps to flatten the PDF before printing. You can find a free provider to flatten the PDF here: https://www.sejda.com/de/flatten-pdf . We are happy to be of assistance with any problems you may encounter.
