Valuation services

The value of your business is influenced by many factors including economic and industry conditions, competition, historical and anticipated financial performance, and management capabilities. Business valuation is a complex process requiring broad knowledge of finance and business, expert application of recognized valuation methodologies, and diligent adherence to professional standards. Mazars provides independent valuation and transaction advisory services to businesses, financial institutions, and legal professionals.

Our professionals perform valuations of public and closely held business entities, intellectual property and other intangible assets, common and preferred stock, partnership interests, debt, options, warrants, and other derivative financial instruments.
