Complex Valuation Analyses, Fairness Opinions and Expert Witness Testimony

SSG provides complex valuation analyses and fairness opinions for both healthy companies and those in transition. When a company is being sold in a workout situation, secured lenders, unsecured creditors and other stakeholders may not always see eye-to-eye. In those cases, it is critical to provide sophisticated valuation analysis to support a contemplated transaction, whether it is a sale of the company or a restructuring among existing stakeholders.

Our valuation expertise encompasses FAS 142 goodwill impairments, debt-to-equity exchanges, fairness opinions for public companies that are being acquired and stock valuations for equity compensation plans or other corporate transactions. We have also supplied various valuation services to support a plan of reorganization for a company in bankruptcy.

In the context of Chapter 11 proceedings, we have experience in providing feasibility analyses, solvency analyses, liquidation valuations and expert witness testimony.
