The Malibu Group’s Growth Assessment Packages take the guesswork out of short- and long-term strategic planning and help you answer fundamental questions such as:

  • How much is my business worth?
  • W hich of my strategic options are most likely to be valued by the marketplace?
  • What are other businesses in my industry doing to increase performance?
  • What are the current trends I need to be aware of?

Knowing with certainty how the market values your business, tapping into the knowledge of industry insiders to discover how much a potential buyer would pay for your business and discovering what value drivers a buyer looks for provide a road map that can guide you from where your business is now to where you want it to end up. Objective, comprehensive and unique information provides a foundation for decision making that is based upon more than a gut feeling.

The Malibu Group has the insight, expertise and capability to answer these questions and more. We have access to a broad range of proprietary databases, industry experts, private equity insiders and marketplace research. By collecting and organizing information from these sources, we act as a conduit between you and the marketplace.  We apply our process of collecting data, filtering and analyzing that data and then delivering it to you in ways that allow you to apply its findings to your business operations.

A Malibu Growth Assessment helps you bridge the gap between the current worth of your business and the ultimate value you hope to achieve.


The Basic Growth Assessment provides a general valuation baseline from which to plan and measure growth; an overview of transactions currently taking place in your industry; insight into what potential buyers, including private equity funds, are looking for in your space; and basic recommendations for increasing the value of your business.


The Comprehensive Growth Assessment provides a thorough understanding of your business’ value, which provides a reliable and specific baseline for charting growth. In addition, the industry and market research conducted for a Comprehensive Growth Assessment contains intelligence that can be acted upon with a high level of confidence. 

The Comprehensive Growth Assessment provides considerable qualitative as well as quantitative information. You receive not only industry level comparisons but also intelligence regarding broader industry trends. In addition, you get the benefit of our connections with the private equity community and our access to knowledgeable experts. Clients receive industry-specific strategic recommendations that go beyond general recommendations that could apply to any business. 

The Strategic Growth Assessment provides not only a complete, thorough and reliable assessment of your company’s value but also detailed industry and market research that gives you a competitive edge over the rest of the market.  We utilize proprietary transaction databases and evaluate recent public and private industry transactions as well as their financial structures. This level of research includes original market surveys of industry experts, analysts, trade associations, private equity firms and competitors.

You receive insight into what is driving market rewards, and you gain an awareness of the attributes that make your company more attractive to the marketplace. Finally, you walk away with specialized, strategic recommendations and expert interpretation of the research that will help you gain the inside track
