We provide extensive valuation consulting services in the areas of mergers, acquisitions, and finance-related transactions. Our valuation expertise can help with a variety of situations, including:
- Buying or Selling a Company
- Bringing a Company Public
- Making a Private Offering of Securities
- Seeking Venture Capital
- Seeking Commercial Bank Financing
In our experience, the amount offered to buy or sell is only one component in an analysis of the offer. More often than not, the offer is not simply for cash. The offer may involve straight debt, convertible debt, warrants, an earn-out, a non-compete agreement and/or other complexities to the proposed transaction. We are prepared to analyze these arrangements and make suitable recommendations.
In addition to performing a valuation of the appropriate business interest, we are prepared to negotiate your position with those representing the other side of a proposed transaction.
We are thoroughly familiar with the types of business plans and other materials that investment and commercial bankers, as well as venture capitalists, prefer to see. We know what types of presentations influence their investment decisions, and can advise you accordingly.
For acquisition-oriented transactions, our valuation services go beyond the simple valuation of the proposed purchase as an independent business entity. In contrast to many of our competitors, we can also evaluate the target company’s potential synergy with your company.
We stand ready to help you in all of your advocacy valuation needs. If your situation requires additional services such as an attorney, accountant or other specialized consultant, our strong professional relationships enable us to refer you to some of the best specialists in the country.
