Business Valuations

Valuation is more than a process designed to reach a conclusion. We know this because we've been in this business for more than 20 years. Our experience has taught us that it is the defensibility of a conclusion that matters. Can you stand back, look your conclusion in the eye and assess its reasonableness in relation to current market conditions? Does it hold water? Can it pass the "sense" test? If we can't answer "yes" to all of these questions, we're not finished yet.

We use the most current market information to draw accurate conclusions. We supplement this information with our experience. In the end, our years of analytical experience, logic and meticulous research combine when we approach the toughest of valuation issues. Our education, training, and experience allow us to perform business valuation services related to the determination of "Fair Value" under GAAP.

Determining the value of a business or proportional ownership interest involves a rigorously defined valuation process that must be followed by the analyst based on existing specific facts and circumstances. We have the requisite education, training, and experience to perform business valuation services under authoritative professional standards promulgated by various recognized organizations.

Our experience includes valuing all legal types of business organizations including C-Corporations; pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability companies; and multi-tiered entities such as family limited partnerships.

    Examples of our work in the area of business valuation include:
  • Acquisition or divestiture transactions
  • Developing or executing equity buy/sell agreements between shareholders
  • Identification and division of marital assets
  • Commercial damages litigation
  • Valuation of charitable deductions for income tax reporting
  • Valuation for gift and estate tax purposes
  • Compliance with Internal Revenue Code Section 409A (Stock Compensation)
  • Business planning and financing
  • Allocation of acquisition purchase price to tangible and intangible assets as well as liabilities and the determination of goodwill
  • Accounting for the impairment of acquisition goodwill
  • Accounting for changes in value of non-marketable equity investment securities
  • Recording equity security based compensation expense

We've done it hundreds of times, for many different clients from one end of the country to the other. It's the reason we know we can do it for you.
