Why Do You Need a Business Valuation?
Independent business valuations are crucial for assessing the value of business assets and goodwill. Whether you are buying or selling a business, developing a plan for succession, or in the midst of a shareholder dispute or marital separation, you need the specialized knowledge and expertise of a business valuation professional. And when you’re engaged in a merger or acquisition transaction, a thorough business valuation can help you negotiate the best deal structure and terms.

- Mergers and Acquisitions
“What is my company worth?” “How is value established?” These are the types of issues we can help you answer so that you have all the information you need to make the right decisions. Whether it is deciding to sell your business or acquiring a new business to facilitate growth, we can assess value so that you maximize your return on investment.
We establish a company’s fair market value by conducting a thorough valuation which encompasses detailed analyses of the company’s operations, industry, historical financial results, financial projections and comparable transaction activity in the industry.
- Shareholder Buyouts
When a shareholder desires to sell their interest in a company, the shares may be sold to other existing shareholders, a management group or to an outside third party. We provide valuation advice, including the preparation of valuation calculations/reports and can assist in the negotiations.
- Shareholder Disputes
The “Oppression Remedy” is one of the mechanisms set out in Canadian and Provincial statutes that can be used by minority shareholders and other stakeholders in response to corporate conduct that is oppressive or unfairly prejudicial. We provide objective valuations to assess fair values in minority interest appraisal and oppression remedy cases.
