Valuation

At KCH, we understand that business valuation is as much an art as it is a science. Because of the complex issues involved and the professional judgment required, choosing the right appraiser is everything. Our credentialed business valuation professionals combine the knowledge and analytical skills necessary for the quantitative side of business valuation with the experience and knowledge required for the qualitative side to provide independent valuation opinions our clients can trust.

Business valuations are required for a variety of purposes, including:

  • Marital dissolutions
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Bankruptcy
  • Gift and estate taxes
  • Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs)
  • Mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations
  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Ownership transactions
  • Fair value measurements for financial reporting (ACS 805, 820, 350)
  • Intangible assets
  • Intellectual property
  • Deferred Compensation (IRC 409A and Employee Stock Options)
  • IRC Section 1374 Built-In Gains (S Corporation Elections)
  • Due diligence engagements
