Professional business valuation services based on generally accepted valuation theory.
Mergers and Acquisitions
A merger represents the fusion of once company by another, whereas an acquisition is the purchase of some portion of one company by another. There are three major tools for valuing a target company, they are:
Market value – comparing similar businesses and deriving a value from that.
Investment or income value – identify the future economic benefits to be generated by an entity and to compare them with the required rate of return.
Asset value – value of all the assets minus the liabilities.
At Sage Forensic Accounting, we have the expertise and experience to assist these cases.
The valuation of a business or its assets calls for a combination of science, art and experience. The business valuation experts at Sage Forensic Accounting offer a comprehensive analysis to provide you with a precise and defensible business valuation report. Our professionals offer practical insight into the strategic, economic, and active affairs of the business, so you can understand the accurate value regardless of the industry.
Business Interruption Damages
A business interruption can be either an anticipated or unanticipated disruption of the normal operations of a company. When a business interruption loss reaches a certain level in value and/or complexity, adjusters turn to forensic accountants to clarify the financial picture and assist in evaluating a fair outcome for the insured and their insurance company. Once it is determined the claim requires this type of expertise, it is optimal to bring in a forensic accountant to join the insurance team as early as possible to consider the financial implications within the claim. Sage Forensic Accounting will work with both the adjuster and the insured to assess the claim, evaluate all of the business factors that will have an impact on the financial picture, and help set the direction for the ultimate resolution.
As the damage of a business interruption increases, claims management is frequently hampered by the loss or destruction of financial and business data and records. In these events of missing financial data, it is crucial for a forensic accountant to be brought in to identify other processes for determining a business’ financial information. Looking at both the facts and the context of the business that has been interrupted, Sage will establish a defensible and accurate calculation of the financial impact for the adjuster and the insured.
The practical and strategic implications of valuation play a vital role throughout the bankruptcy process. Some of the most critical areas of valuation during the process include: adequate protection, fraudulent transfer, plan confirmation, new value, and recovery actions.
Sage Forensic Accounting has considerable experience assisting clients in performing valuations in conjunction with bankruptcy proceedings.
