Valuation Services

Pretium Valuation Group provides a full range of valuation services to its clients. A common misconception is that there can be only one value. In reality value is materially influenced by the definition of value and the interest that is valued.

A successful valuation engagement begins with establishing the proper standard or definition of value. While this may seem elementary, interpretations of the word value can differ greatly. Properly defining the standard of value is critical to a successful valuation engagement. There are several standards of value with varying appropriateness depending on the purpose of the valuation engagement:

  • Fair Market Value
  • Fair Value
  • Intrinsic Value
  • Investment Value

We assist clients in defining the purpose and scope of the valuation to insure that the objectives of the client are satisfied by the valuation engagement. Taking the time to clearly define the purpose of the valuation and the requirements of a thorough valuation helps the client to a better understanding of the valuation dynamics. There are number of purposes for valuing an entity or entity interest such as:

  • Gift and Estate Tax Cases
  • Charitable Contributions
  • Ad Valorem Taxes
  • Stock Option Plans
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plans
  • Dissenting Stockholder Actions
  • Minority Oppression Cases
  • Marital Dissolution
  • Damage Cases

After establishing the proper standard of value and purpose of the valuation engagement, we prepare a comprehensive, qualitative and quantitative analysis of the entity’s history and prospects. The result is an extensive report delineating the conclusion reached along with full disclosure of the analytical processes employed.

Our firm revolves around value. Whether assisting a client in valuing a business interest or raising capital funding, Pretium Valuation Group focuses on delivering value.
