Howzit, I'm Mark Corke

We have produced business valuations for more than two decades in South Africa. In that time we have been party to countless negotiations across the spectrum of all industries. That includes businesses from small-team, closely-held specialists at one end, and medium-size, multi-shareholder industrialists at the other.

Small and medium-size enterprises want to be attractive to the bigger buyers. They need to take a more professional and nuanced approach to business valuation.

And until 31 August you can benefit from a special discount and receive a WORLD-CLASS industry-standard business valuation.

What's possible with our business valuation service?

Valuation as well as prices

Too many business valuation services deliver price, not value. We give you both.

Up to date industry metrics

Performance data for your business compared to the latest in your business's industry.

Your exposure exposed

Prepare for your negotiation understanding why your asking price offers good value

We are USPAP compliant

Subscribed to the tenets of the Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice.

Key Valuation Indicators

Every business has a unique fingerprint of valuation determinants. We call them "key valuation indicators" (KVIs). The Suitegum Business Valuation tests the business for 23 broad indicators and hundreds of sub-indicators - 957 in all. We examine a potential 1300 relationships between KVIs and how they could affect the key performance indicators of the business.

This analysis and approach is included in your discounted business valuation!!!

Aswath Damadoran on value

"

Knowing what an asset is worth and what determines that value is a prerequisite for intelligent decision making—in choosing investments for a portfolio, in deciding on the appropriate price to pay or receive in a takeover, and in making investment, financing, and dividend choices when running a business.


Aswath Damadoran - Damodaran on Valuation (Wiley Finance) (p. 1). Wiley. Kindle Edition.

Damodaran is a Professor of Finance at the Stern School of Business at NYU. He teaches classes in corporate finance and valuation.

Mark gave me a valuation on my business. A business broker gave me a much higher valuation. We pitched to three different buyers, and one made an offer on the broker’s valuation. However, after the due diligence the buyer expressed unhappiness with the price. We ended up settling at Mark’s valuation.

The professionalism and the expertise provided by Mark and his team far surpasses any previous experiences that we have encountered through business brokers.. 

Chris de Wet

Many, many thanks for the valuation. I am so grateful for having found you on “Google”. 

Beth Wallace

I know that if you're looking for a more accurate valuation, the best thing you can do is speak to someone like Mark for proper, professional advice.

Peter Smythe


We met Mark years ago (2010) through Peter Carruthers. We found his advice and help invaluable.

My company had previously received two valuations from accounting firms with an enormous disparity in the results. It was clear that they had only used our financial statements without looking at the myriad of other factors that make up a business.

Mark has a far more holistic approach which takes into account over 30 valuation indicators to produce an unbiased and realistic assessment of a company's true market value.

I cannot thank Mark enough for going the extra mile in completing the report for us on time
and for all his valuable insights.

Jeremy Robinson

Mark, just a note to say thanks. I like the presentation and the justification for the value given. We expect this to become an annual thing and we will do it again at about the same time next year.

The Suitegum business valuation, in my experience, is a robust business valuation mechanism which is easily understandable and completely transparent.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does your limited special work?

From time to time we find ourselves kicking our heels while we wait for a deal to be finalised. Also, some extra cash flow would be nice.

Our clients take advantage of the situation by either buying their valuations for current delivery, or they purchase a valuation to be conducted at some time in the future. 

The previous valuation special was in November 2021! So take advantage now! We don't know when the next special will be.

Why is there no buy-button?

Yeah, we agree it would be nice to automate the whole process and sausage machine everything from order to delivery. But your business is as unique as you are. And your business valuation report will be unique as well.

We figure it is good to get the ball rolling with a one-on-one conversation to develop a relationship and answer any questions you have.

So when you fill in the form on this page you will be added to a list. We will arrange a time to call when it suits you, and possibly out of office hours if you prefer. 

When we're all on the same page with expectations and requirements we will send you an invoice for payment. Your discount will be locked in when you pay.

What experience do you have?

Suitegum Business Valuations has been a thing for more than 20 years. Since the lead-up to the implementation of capital gains tax in South Africa on 1 October 2001, to be exact.

Before that, my first evaluative roles started as a young officer in the SADF, sitting on the board evaluating the capacities of soldiers to become non-commissioned officers, junior officers, or remain as privates for the time-being. 

Once my time was served, I joined Nedbank as their first job-evaluation specialist, tasked with grading the jobs of all the managers in the bank, from branches to head-office and the special emerging arms of the most proactive bank at the time. That was the last formal employment I had.

In 1990 I established a computer security company with some friends. I started, bought, sold, and crashed several businesses in various industries for ten years.

I was screwed over several times, which forced me to concentrate on the legalities of contracts of sale and company laws. By then I was helping other people buy and sell businesses, and a few years later when capital gains tax was introduced in South Africa, I took the valuation gap. And here we are.

Are you an attorney?

No.

Next question?

You, over there...

Do you understand my industry?

We probably do. But we refresh ourselves all the time, usually through the interview. If your industry is unique, emerging, or obscure we will learn about it with you.

Which leads to "what do you know about my business?" We take the stance of starting afresh with a clean slate for every business we run through our valuation process. Preconceived ideas lead to mistakes which can be costly. 

And it would be embarrassing to say I have done your sort of business before, when the central tenet in our marketing is that no business is identical to any other!

Can I talk to you before placing my order?

Oh, I insist on it. You will notice there is no provision here for you to give anybody credit card details. Our business valuations don't work like that. Fill in the form, and I will call you within a few hours. We will discuss your needs and the application. You will have, by then, received our business valuation product sheet so we can have an informed discussion. There is no charge or obligation for that call.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

Certainly not. The Universal Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), Std10, requires valuers' remuneration to be independent of valuation results, and not compromised in any way by the results.

Look out for the guys who base their fee on a percentage of the result obtained! I mean, seriously? They do have nicer cars than ours, though.

We charge a professional fee, commensurate with our experience and the level of work every exercise demands. You can pay when we're done, but before we send the report to you. Or we offer very favourable discounts for payment in advance. 

How will you cope?

We don't sausage-machine our valuations, but we do have preparation bowls. We go through a number of stages for each valuation, and one team member is dealing with numbers, another will doing some writing, and of course we often have to wait for our clients to answer questions.

And then, of course, 58% of our clients take advantage of the special offer to buy a valuation for later in the year. That arrangement works for both of us.

Take advantage of our 2023 valuation discount!
