Valuations for Financial Reporting

We assist in developing transparent valuation practices, especially for hard-to-value assets.

As an independent third party, we are able to help reduce conflict of interest concerns.  Our support includes:

  • Allocation of the purchase price paid to acquired intangible assets such as intellectual property, patents, trademarks, copyrights, covenants-not-to-compete, technology, software, customer assets, and other contractual relationships (ASC 805)
  • Pre-merger and acquisition of valuation modeling
  • Goodwill impairment testing (ASC 350)
  • Restricted stock and stock option grants (IRS Sec. 409a and/or ASC 718)
  • Hard-to-value Investment Assets (FASB ASC 820):
    • Convertible and participating preferred and common stock
    • Warrants, options, stock appreciation rights, and derivatives
    • Debt securities — mezzanine, MBS, ABS, convertible debt
    • Interest rate swaps
    • Structured products
