Business Valuation

What’s it really worth?

What is the value of a privately held business or business interest? What about an intangible asset? Or a specific financial instrument like an option, warrant, convertible debt, preferred stock, or other complex security?

When appropriate, our valuations comply with the applicable standards promulgated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Appraised Foundation, and the American Society of Appraisers.
