Corporate valuation

Justifying the value of assets and liabilities has grown more complex and critical for most businesses. Our experienced corporate valuation professionals bring excellence in accounting, taxation and financial due diligence, providing integrated solutions that help clients make better quality decisions around value. We help clients advance their strategic, financial and tax agendas through a combination of corporate finance and valuation analyses.

Business modeling

Our Business Modeling professionals provide robust quantitative analysis and insight, while leveraging advanced data science, mathematics and statistical skills, to provide robust, evidenced-based analytics to inform our clients’ strategic and operational decision making around all elements of the capital agenda. Often reporting directly to a company’s most senior executives, we enhance our clients’ understanding of costs, benefits, uncertainties and risks to enable more confident, strategic decisions and judgements around capital allocation. We employ tools and techniques to deliver predictive and prescriptive analytics, including the use of financial modeling solutions.

Building an effective business model, whether it‘s to evaluate a transaction, a new market opportunity or for other strategic purposes, is a complex and difficult task. In addition, clients often place reliance on a business model and require a degree of independent comfort that such business model is free from logical errors. Our Business Modeling professionals also help clients carry out the model review, model support and model-build activities our clients need to make key decisions and improve strategic outcomes.

An independent fairness opinion can help the board mitigate risk by augmenting its transaction review process, strengthening its fiduciary oversight and protecting shareholder value. When executives pursue transactions, they face heightened scrutiny, increasing complexity and rising shareholder activism. Board members need to be diligent, objective and transparent when they evaluate a merger, acquisition, divestiture or other material transaction. Learn more.
