Our business valuation advisory services is the recognized choice when a fair and independent opinion on the equity fair market value of a business is sought by purchasers and sellers alike.
With a long successful track record in assessing the fair market value of businesses, we are able to bring matters to clarity when it comes to addressing changing market conditions and unique company circumstances based on a well-documented analysis based on internationally recognized valuation methodologies that can be applied to a wide range of circumstances or purposes, including:
- Shareholder disputes;
- M&A transactions;
- Purchase price allocations relating to goodwill;
- Matrimonial divisions; and
- Succession planning.
Quantitative and Qualitative Approach
Prior to working through the numbers, we first spend time to understand the drivers that impact the business, including the revenue generation factors and cost drivers with senior management personnel. Understanding the business in all of its unique aspects is key.
This due diligence is continued until a Discounted Cash Flow model is developed that accurately forecasts the future free cash flows and market data is compiled to assess an accurate and current discount rate.
In order to add more validation to the Discounted Cash Flow model, we also perform a valuation opinion based on the price multiplier approach by sourcing publicly-traded comparable companies and apply those metrics to the company statistics if possible to ensure a more robust assessment.
Our core valuation practitioner is a Chartered Financial Analyst® with over 10 years of experience in valuations. This includes past work as a Research Analyst identifying and analyzing investments with deep knowledge of valuation best practices and the local market.
