Financial valuation has become a major challenge in decision making and firm communication. The job may focus on the company itself or an holding. The valuation may also concern the whole activity, some business segments or particular assets as well as financial products (options, warrant, bonds etc.…).

Despite a globalization of financial valuation practice, it remains a sensible topic requiring professional and specific expertise.

  • Merger and acquisition
  • Specific certifications (privatization, employee savings, …)

Legal & ruled valuation

  • Accounting assessment
  • Purchase Price Allocation
  • Impairment tests
  • Taxes and social valuation (internal transactions, option and capital access products pricing…)
  • Patrimonial (Net asset value)
  • Intangible assets (goodwill, brands, patents, …)
  • Capital instruments (options, long term transactions, …).
