BIZCOMPS for Valuators

The BIZCOMPS database of small business sales was initiated in 1990 to investigate and report financial information about small business transactions in the United States. The individual transactions are supplied by Business Brokers. BIZCOMPS was started because market data on small business transfers was virtually nonexistent, leaving the appraiser, investor, and advisor to speculate about the fair market value of the enterprise.

BIZCOMPS provides detailed, meaningful financial information about real-world transactions.  Currently, there are almost 12,000 transactions over a 10-year period for businesses that mostly sold for under one million dollars.
