Business Enterprise Valuation

Analysis Group has performed valuations of interests in publicly traded companies and private companies. These take the form of merger and solvency analyses; minority, debt, and other stockholder claims; bankruptcy matters; and the valuation of operating divisions, subsidiaries, product lines, joint ventures, and foreign subsidiaries. Some of the specific components of our valuation assignments have included increasing or decreasing solvency, reasonableness of financial projections, market and industry disclosures, and cause of business failure or the impact of business interruption.

Analysis Group has valued hundreds of public and privately held companies across a range of industries, including technology, manufacturing, distribution, retail, and professional services. These valuations have been undertaken for many purposes, including:

  • Liability and damages assessment in commercial litigation and marital dissolutions
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Partner buy/sell agreements
  • Estate and gift taxes
  • Strategic planning
