Business Valuation Consulting
Our typical business valuation engagements involve companies that generate annual revenues of under $5 million to over $50 million, and include closely held corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, family limited partnerships, portfolio companies, reporting units, and income-producing real estate.
Our valuation experts are experienced in developing valuation conclusions under the standards of fair market value, fair value and investment value.
We specialize in valuing non-marketable interests, from a fractional or minority interest basis to shared or absolute control, and with thorough consideration of the internal and external factors affecting the subject interest’s lack of control and lack of marketability.
Closely Held Businesses
Access Value’s valuation practice for closely held businesses focuses on personalized attention and professional expertise for our small business clients.
Access Value’s approach to each engagement includes a thorough analysis of the relevant facts and circumstances of the subject company, the key value drivers of the subject interest, as of the valuation date, a scope of work and level of documentation that adheres to our professional standards, supports our valuation conclusion, and meets the needs of the intended users.
