It is important to select the location that makes the most sense for your project, this includes both the physical characteristics of the site and the best location based on the potential market. Val-Add will assist you in selecting the right property and make sure there are no unseen stumbling blocks along the way. We will work with local government and economic development agencies, local utility providers, railroads and neighbors to ensure that you have the perfect place to launch a successful business.
While every project is feasible, given unlimited time and resources, only a select few will be profitable. A profitability study is just what it sounds like: an in-depth study of a concept to determine if profitability is feasible. While there is no such thing as a guaranteed success, proper due diligence goes a long way toward eliminating guess work and can help avoid costly mistakes.
When Val-Add Service conducts a profitability study, we will assist your group to look at all of the variables that will come into play including, but not limited to: Product Market Analysis, Inputs Market Analysis, Utility Costs, Transportation Issues (road improvements), Infrastructure Needs, Industry Trends, Competitive Analysis and Financial Analysis
A complete and well written business plan is critical in the process of raising equity and securing the debt that a start-up project needs. Your business plan will demonstrate to potential investors and / or lenders the viability of your project. Val-Add Services has extensive business plan experience and will work with you to develop a plan that will satisfy your investors and lenders.
Raising equity is a challenge with a variety of state and federal agencies and their specific rules and regulations weighing in on every project. Val-Add will develop a program that will allow you to take your project out to secure investment while still following all of the rules from the Securities and Exchange Commission. We will work with you and your legal firm to write the offering documents and prepare a presentation to take to investors. Val-Add can also conduct training for your board members and work with you while talking to investors to make sure all of their questions are answered. We can also secure advertising for your project.
In today's economic climate, financing is not as easy as it once was. With over 20 years of financial experience, Val-Add Service Corporation 'speaks the language' of the lending institutions and will work with you to secure acceptable debt financing. We will work through a variety of options including state agencies and financial institutions to find the program that is right for your project.
The accounting procedures that go along with Equity Fundraising are also regulated by the SEC. Val-Add has developed a program to track investments as they arrive and send confirmation to each investor, track the payment of their investment and distribute stock certificates. This will keep your company fully compliant with the SEC during the equity fundraising.
