Merger and Acquisition Professionals need certified appraisals to ensure that the financial and legal interests of their clients are protected. Any time a private equity firm or M&A specialist is called upon to negotiate a deal between two companies, it’s essential to know the exact fair market value of the business’s assets. The best way to assess the legitimate market value of a company and its assets is with the use of a Certified Appraisal.
“Educated guesses,” depreciation schedules, and book values all fail to provide a true evaluation. Business Valuations require Income, Asset, and Market transaction considerations. Simply using a Balance Sheet entry for assets value is often wrong. Many accounting depreciation strategies write-down asset values below actual Fair Market Values.
As a general rule, participating financial institutions, private equity firms, accountants, attorneys, courts of law, the IRS and other interested parties will require a Certified Appraisal. In the interest of time, efficiency and accuracy, it makes sense to schedule a Certified Appraisal at the outset of all merger and acquisition negotiations. Furniture fixture & equipment (FF&E), Personal property appraisals, and tangible asset appraisals are another specialty of Brumbaugh Appraisals, and an area that can be of particular value is some M&A proceedings.
