A fairness opinion provides an independent, objective analysis of a proposed deal’s financial aspects from the point of view of one or more of the parties to the transaction. Any number of factors in deals involving both public and private companies can trigger the need for a fairness opinion. These documents are frequently used to protect the interests of company directors, stockholders, investors, and any other involved parties with any kind of fiduciary responsibility. Fairness opinions are often requested in deals involving public offerings, leveraged buyouts, or major refinancing/restructuring.
ValueScope has the personnel, expertise, and research resources to provide the assurance of fairness to participants that these types of deals require. Our industry expertise sets us apart from other generalist firms. We are highly experienced in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and related transactions. A fairness opinion from ValueScope is the product of a comprehensive analysis that includes a thorough review of the terms and structure of the proposed transaction.
The combination of experience, in-depth analysis, and sterling credentials that we bring to a fairness opinion can help to discourage challenges from third parties. Not surprisingly, a wide range of both public and private corporations and boards of directors call on us to provide them with independent opinions regarding acquisitions, divestitures, management buyouts, and similar major transactions.
