Business valuation is at the core of everything we do as a firm.
With over 25 years of experience in the field, our senior level business appraisers and valuation experts have provided thousands of valuations for privately-held companies, trusts, and partnerships of all sizes ranging from startups to billion dollar corporations.
Our valuation opinions are relied on to provide clarity and support in connection with a range of transaction, financial, and strategic planning initiatives that are common to small and mid-size private companies such as:
- Business sales, mergers, and acquisitions
- Shareholder, partner, and management buyouts
- Shareholder buy-sell agreements
- Private equity recapitalizations
- ESOPs and other equity compensation plans
- Strategic exit and liquidity planning
- Estate planning and gifting transactions
- Shareholder disputes
In addition to providing independent and unbiased valuation opinions, we routinely provide valuation-related advisory services to business owners, minority shareholders, and investors looking to understand what drives value and how to maximize it.
Our accredited professionals hold the world renowned and respected Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation from the American Society of Appraisers (www.appraisers.org). Professionals holding the ASA designation are recognized as having survived the strictest education, training, peer review, and experience requirements of any appraisal credentialing organization. The ASA designation is considered the gold standard for business valuation professionals.
