Valuation

The activities required to valuate assets and liabilities are expected to become increasingly complex in the coming years.

Our professionals are highly qualified in financial, accounting, tax and due diligence processes, which allows us to provide enterprise valuation services for wide-ranging purposes.

Valuation is one of the foremost parts of any process of acquisition, merger, spin-off, sale, corporate restructuring, capital injection, IPO, etc., and can be performed using the following criteria:

  • Fair Value (guided by rules, particularly CPC 46 – Fair Value Measurement)
  • Investment Value (considers the assumptions and needs of a private investor, based on their individual investment requirements and expectations).
Purchase Price Allocation

This is the process of allocating the acquisition cost of an entity to its acquired assets and assumed liabilities, appraised at their Fair Value (link to corporate finance). The surplus is considered goodwill.

Exit plans

We act when the company needs to generate liquidity to allow the implementation of its recovery/turnaround plan, making it necessary to sell assets/businesses or non-core areas, which the company can sell to continue with its core business.

We advise on the evaluation and interpretation of information presented by stakeholders, in raising funds to allow the maintenance of the company’s activity during the transition period, in the financial clauses of the agreements, in the preparation/evaluation of offer letters, letters of intent, purchase and sale agreements, and in the management, control and coordination of the negotiation process.

Advisory on distressed assets

We advise investors specialized in distressed assets, multinational companies and other stakeholders to analyze and structure solutions to create value or minimize/mitigate losses in the case of distressed assets. We work with a multidisciplinary approach, including financial, tax and legal advisors so that, from the beginning, it is possible to see the complete solution and the risks inherent to the proposed plans.

Special situations and portfolio sale

We advise sellers and investors in distressed assets in the valuation and purchase/sale of said assets.  We lead the parties throughout the process, coordinating both the seller and the buyer’s legal advisors, accountants, asset appraisers, etc. We provide support in the selection of strategies through a detailed analysis of the Hold vs Sell costs/benefits (when we advise sellers). Our long experience in this market has brought us deep and long-standing connections with the global investment community, thus facilitating our search for the right investors for every transaction.
