Understanding of the value of a business, the quality of its earnings and its financial exposures is critical to developing strategies to maximize the effectiveness of a transaction. The professionals in EisnerAmper’s Corporate Finance Group offer comprehensive advisory services for our clients seeking to complete acquisitions or minority investments, transfer ownership interests, or secure equity and mezzanine financing.
Our Corporate Finance professionals work with buy-side and sell-side strategic acquirers, investors, private equity and mezzanine funds. Our expertise is with businesses and investors in middle-market transactions across a wide range of industries, both domestic and international.
When considering mergers and acquisitions, clients engage EisnerAmper to combine financial, accounting, tax, information technology, and industry expertise in a multidisciplinary investigative effort, in order to look behind numbers and reveal true financial pictures. Our detailed approach includes quality-of-earnings assessment, management interviews, facility visits, auditor meetings, GAAP compliance assessment and close review of documents, records and workpapers. The objective: a comprehensive understanding of the full financial implications of a transaction within the context of our client’s business objectives.
Clients understand that the way transactions are structured can have immense economic impact, and materially affect their business objectives. EisnerAmper transaction services include evaluating the impact of a transaction on financial statements or taxable income; and suggesting alternatives that may improve those outcomes. We point you to the key issues and provide facts that enable you to negotiate from a position of strength.
Clients also retain us to provide helpful insight into transaction documents, especially representations and warranties, disclosure schedules, working capital, and post-closing adjustment provisions. After the closing, clients seek to leverage our knowledge of the target company with services such as closing balance sheet adjustments, earnout reviews, and purchase price allocations.
Whether our valuation assignments are for tax purposes, financial reporting, dispute resolution, or advisory and strategic planning purposes, clients turn to EisnerAmper professionals for knowledge and understanding of valuation methodology and practices, based upon an in-depth understanding of the critical drivers of value and our real-world transaction experience. We strive to substantiate our valuation conclusions based on the particular facts and assumptions underlying each and every valuation we perform. We also provide key insights to EisnerAmper’s Audit Group on significant valuation issues affecting fair-value reporting.
Our Corporate Finance professionals also provide related services, including assistance with purchase price dispute resolution, financial modeling and forensic investigations.
