To bring a clear, fundamentally sound finding of value to each client
When competitors' cases go to Tax Court or when negotiations fall apart over valuation, it is often because the analyst has failed to use good fundamentals. Our positions are built so that authorities have no choice but to consider them. Four factors set us apart - and are why we are able to produce for our clients. All without an IRS challenge - ever.
First, appraisal is more than the financials and market cap rates. We capture a company's value drivers like a private equity investor - entry barriers, growth rate and available market. This not only helps explain the value of intellectual property, but all business types - early stage growth, Main Street, services, SaaS, distribution and manufacturing. Each is different. Each value is driven by specific competitive, economic and market factors.
Then, we apply data that fits. Private companies are best valued starting from M&A data, not public market data. Just ask a private equity investor or business broker.
Third, our solutions are built with scientific method that connects the value drivers to the end result. This is different from a theoretical approach using statistics, CAPM, binomial lattice analysis and differential equations that are certainly skillful, but can be enormously inaccurate for small and medium size companies.
And last, we purposefully address inventory, real estate and contingencies that analytics and income models don't consider, which is key for real estate partnerships, retail/distribution, 409a stock compensation and ESOPs and C-to-S conversions.
