As recognized experts, we prepare comprehensive business valuations for such purposes as succession planning, dispute resolution, estate planning, debt and equity financing, fairness opinions, and employee share ownership programs.
We have extensive business valuation experience across a wide range of industries.
We commonly prepare either a pricing analysis or an independent business valuation in support of a proposed transaction to sell all or part of a business interest.
A pricing analysis is a business valuation prepared on a non-independent basis that can provide shareholders with useful insights about value-drivers and potential value to a strategic purchaser. These insights can be used to help negotiate a transaction on behalf of the sellers. A pricing analysis is one of the first steps we undertake in preparing to take a business to market.
Sometimes independent valuations provide the best solution for negotiating a purchase and sale transaction. For example, we have worked on many management buy-outs where the parties are most interested in a bankable deal that will fairly distribute the risks and rewards resulting from a transaction; thereby optimizing the chance of continued success in the business for the benefit of employees, customers, and shareholders.
We also use our financial and business skills to prepare detailed financial projections and business plans that assist with debt and equity financing, and ongoing operations and budgeting for a business.
Sometimes a business suffers losses due to business interruption, expropriation, or the injury of a key employee. We are skilled in quantifying business losses for purposes of insurance claims and legal proceedings.
Mark Grey-Dreaper has appeared as an expert witness in the Supreme Court of British Columbia for both share valuation and quantification of loss matters.
