3. Eight Part video series
In part 1 of the 8-part video series on the drivers of company value, we explore how your financial performance impacts your company’s value. I will send you the next part of the series each day for the next seven days.
I shot the videos in my capacity as the founder of a company called The Value Builder System™ where we help business owners improve the value of their company. You can see what we’re up to here:www.ValueBuilderSystem.com.
A shotgun deal is the most brutal form of capitalism. When you can’t stand your partner anymore, you offer them a price for their shares. They have two choices: accept your offer or buy you out for the same amount. Triggering a shotgun deal can have explosive results, as Kim Ades found when she offered to buy out her husband’s share of Upward Motion.

Today’s video looks at the role recurring revenue plays in making your company look irresistible to an acquirer.
The recurring revenue stream you create from “Automatic Customers” is key to driving up your company’s value.
I can say this with confidence because over at The Value Builder System™, we have analyzed and advised more than 17,000 businesses and we’ve found that those users with at least 50% of their revenue from recurring sources were more likely to get an unsolicited written offer to buy their business. As well, the value of those offers was significantly higher than average.
We’ve developed a 12-step process for creating recurring revenue and improving your company’s value, following the themes in both The Automatic Customer and Built to Sell. It all starts with your Value Builder Score, which you can get by completing a short, confidential questionnaire about your business. If you’re interested in getting your score, please visithttp://www.automaticcustomer.com/get-your-score-now.
