Valuation and business modelling
We have a wealth of valuation experience in Japan as financial advisors on M&A, asset transactions, have valued a wide variety of businesses, equity and debt positions from both a buy-side and sell-side perspective. The increasing complexity brought about by recent legal, accounting and tax amendments makes it even more critical that our valuation service offerings provide optimal support in the formulation of corporate strategies. We aim to distinguish ourselves in the eyes of our clients through quantitative services that enhance corporate strategy.

We draw on our accumulated knowledge in Japan and globally to deliver flexible solutions to respond to our clients’ valuation needs.
