Transaction Advisory & Restructuring

Today’s corporate business transactions are increasingly complex, and independent business valuations are often necessary to minimize concerns about conflicts of interest. Business appraisals are also helpful in the transaction planning and evaluation processes. Transactions often proceed more smoothly, and the risk of wasting resources on fruitless negotiations can be avoided if the parties establish the own objective view of the value of the subject assets in advance of negotiations.

Fairness opinions were once more of a formality. However, investors, regulators, and others are increasingly expecting independent fairness opinions done by qualified valuation experts. Moreover, after a transaction is completed management often needs to allocate the purchase price among various assets.
