Value can exist in various forms, whether as tangible or intangible assets of a business, an investment, or intellectual property. In today’s global economy, where opportunities exist at every level, it is crucial for companies to assess whether these opportunities or transactions enhance or detract from their value. This is why valuations are a critical component in the decision-making process for mergers and acquisitions, tax structuring, dispute resolutions, corporate restructuring, and accounting or financial reporting.

Valuation can be controversial and subjective, necessitating an independent and robust opinion that will withstand scrutiny. Additionally, changes in the global business environment in recent years have underscored the need for professional valuation expertise. Kreston possesses extensive experience and deep expertise in valuing different asset classes, including businesses, financial instruments and derivatives, intangible assets and intellectual property rights, plant and machinery, and real estate. Each valuation assignment is supported by a financial model that is complemented by our technical rigor and commercial acumen, built to meet the objectives of the assignment.
