Sell-Side Valuation Analysis

Business valuations in M&A situations are complex, and in addition, business owners might be unrealistic (favorably or unfavorably) regarding the value of the business. When selling a business, a knowledgeable, unbiased, and well-supported valuation opinion can provide the strong foundation needed for potential negotiations, and assist sellers maximizing the purchase consideration.
In addition, YMS Value has the experience to analyze different components of an offer, such as deferred payments, contingent payments and various types of securities.

Commercial Due Diligence

When a corporate or a private equity wants to acquire another company, it needs to thoroughly understand that company’s current and projected performance.
We provide a commercial due diligence reporting, which involves a comprehensive review of the company’s business plan in the context of projected market conditions and the industry/competition.

Financial Due Diligence

Due diligence is an investigation of a potential investment or product to confirm all facts, such as reviewing all financial records, plus anything else deemed material. It refers to the care a reasonable person should take before entering into an agreement or a financial transaction with another party.
 

Fairness and Solvency Opinions

A fairness is provided by a third-party expert, in support of the financial fairness of a corporate transaction. Boards of directors will seek a fairness opinion as part of discharging their fiduciary duties of loyalty and care by acting on an informed basis.

State laws impose certain duties on boards of directors with respect to dividends, distributions and other transfers. 
A solvency opinion makes determinations as to whether, after giving effect to a transaction:

  • The company’s assets exceed its debts;

  • The company should be able to pay its debts as they come due;

  • The company is not left with unreasonably small assets or capital; and

  • There is sufficient surplus to effect a distribution.
