Buy-side and sell-side merger and acquisition transactions, capital transactions such as public or private offerings, and other corporate transactions can be challenged by shareholders. Decision makers are obliged to perform diligence surrounding any of the mentioned transactions to meet their fiduciary responsibilities, mitigate risk or determine corporate value. When it comes to questions of value we are able to give a third-party opinion about the fairness of the transaction from a financial point of view. We work on behalf of boards of directors, investors, trustees and other corporate leaders to provide opinions on a wide range of transactions.
Based on our experiences, we are able to analyze the transaction and utilize a broad range of sophisticated valuation methodologies. With the use of sophisticated valuation methodologies we are able to determine a range of values within which a proposed transaction is fair (a fairly priced transaction should fall within this range).
Fairness opinion includes opinions on:
- Buy-side and sell-side merger and acquisition
- Asset sales
- Management buyout
- Subsidiary spin-offs and joint ventures
- Affiliate and insider transactions
- Related-party transactions
- Synergistic mergers
- Transactions involving competing offers
- Down-round financings
