Valuation services you can depend on when you need to know: “What’s it all worth”?
When you need to determine the value of a business, or receive tangible asset or intangible asset valuations, the valuation services professionals at Plante Moran have the experience to determine: What’s it all worth?
Our clients turn to us with that question for a number of reasons. Sometimes they are preparing a financial statement, buying or selling a business, preparing an estate plan or employee stock purchase plan, or dissolving a business partnership or marriage.
Regardless of why you need valuation services, you will benefit from our team’s experience and proven methodology.
The art and science of valuation services
When we conduct a valuation, we consider all relevant approaches, which may include an asset approach, income approach, and/or market approach. You can also depend on us to go beyond the information provided in financial statements and tax returns. For instance, if we are valuing a business, we examine industry conditions, competing organizations in the marketplace, the strength of your products and/or services, the productivity of your workforce, and future growth prospects. We bring together your facts and the insight we’ve gleaned from years of experience working with organizations like yours.
We have been retained by businesses, partnerships, individuals, not-for-profit organizations, and governments in thousands of valuation engagements.
