LEGAL DISCLAIMER – COREVALUE AND VALUE BUILDER

Dunnington Consulting uses best of breed tools such as Core Value Software and Value Builder as value assessment tools. Following is a disclaimer for these and associated resources.

CoreValue (developed at MIT) for online valuation uses client input data in the CoreValue® software. Dunnington Consulting can make no claim as to the accuracy of what clients enter. In plain English, garbage in, garbage out. Even if input data is fully accurate, this is not intended to be, or substitute for a formal financial valuation and should not be used as such. History shows it tracks reliably within +/- 10% of actual comparable business sales but it doesn’t include goodwill, patent values, real estate, etc – it assesses the core engine that creates value for current customers with current products and services. It’s not about a single number. It’s about your company’s ability to reliably generate revenue and profit into the future – and ultimately transfer. It’s about growing your business’ value.

• CoreValue references comparative data by industry (NAICS code) using the Business

Resources Guide, Pratt’s Stats, GF Data and Biz Miner. These are considered industry standard resources for business transaction data.

• Client data is not for use by any other person except the client to whom the report is addressed. Your data is secure in the CoreValue database and will not be accessible except by you.

• Tax Advice Disclosure: To ensure compliance with requirements imposed by the IRS under Circular 230, we inform you that any U.S. federal tax advice contained in this communication (including any attachments), unless otherwise specifically stated, was not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for (1) avoiding penalties under the Internal Revenue Code or (2) promoting, marketing or recommending to another party any matters addressed herein.

• With respect to Value Builder, third party vendors or service providers, any information or written material provided to you by Dunnington Consulting including, but not limited to, information or written material concerning third-party vendors or service providers should not be construed as advice or in any way an endorsement or recommendation given by Dunnington Consulting. Opinions expressed are current opinions only as of the date

   

provided. Dunnington Consulting does not accept any responsibility to update any opinions or other information contained in this material.

• Dunnington Consulting is not able to verify the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of data making up the basis of CoreValue Software or Value Builder analyses or reports. Review carefully the material and perform such due diligence as you deem fit, including consulting your own independent legal, tax, accountancy and other professional or specialist advisors, as necessary or appropriate. Neither Dunnington Consulting, nor any of its officers, directors, agents or employees, makes any warranty, express or implied, of any kind whatsoever, or assumes any responsibility for any losses, damages, costs or expenses, of any kind or description, relating to the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of this material or its use including, but not limited to, information provided by third parties. You should not construe silence by Dunnington Consulting, or any of its officers, directors, agents or

employees as approval or endorsement of any statements made by a third party. © Copyright 2018 - Dunnington Consulting
