- Fairness opinion for purchases
As your advisor, we can provide support on all aspects of a transaction or provide a neutral expert opinion, and we will do so in an independent, personal and comprehensive manner. Company valuations are influenced by parameters which are defined by when and why the valuation takes place. We have extensive expertise and many years’ experience in working with companies and family businesses, as well as with a very broad range of corporate situations in the various phases of a company’s life cycle. Moreover, if required we can quickly bring in additional experts from both within and outside our company.
A number of established valuation methods based on a variety of assumptions can be used for company valuations, such as the income capitalization method or the discounted cash flow method. Our value approximations can thus provide a plausible, balanced perspective which takes into account not only conventional valuation approaches but also market conditions, the company’s market environment and relevant benchmarks.
We would be delighted to discuss your specific valuation situation with you personally. We look forward to meeting you!
Moreover, we are constantly working to further develop our services, for example in the specialist areas of brand valuation and valuation of intellectual property (IP). We would be delighted to find out more about you and your specific questions in these areas too, and to provide you with effective support in finding the right solution.
