Increasingly, the management of publicly traded and private companies is being asked to provide auditors and regulatory agencies with reliable measures of fair value for the companies' assets (financial, tangible and intangible) and their equity interests (in the case of private companies).
Responding to this need for cost-effective appraisal solutions for company management and their advisors, FMV Opinions is staffed with professionals who specialize in appraisals for financial reporting purposes. Our professionals have the relevant work experience at major accounting firms, and the educational credentials and professional designations to evidence their expertise in these matters.
In addition to providing fair values for assets acquired in business combinations under ASC 805 (SFAS 141R), we also provide fair values for reporting units which provide company management with an indication of goodwill impairment under ASC 350 (SFAS 142). In many cases, our purchase price allocations of acquired assets in business combinations are also utilized for tax purposes.
Utilizing our business valuation expertise, we provide reliable estimates of fair value for company business interests (preferred and/or common stock) and estimates for the fair value of employee stock options under ASC 718 (SFAS 123R).
