The Price Is Right
What’s a business worth?
In the eyes of its founder, a business may be priceless. But there are times that call for a more accurate number from an objective point of view. Not just when you’re buying or selling, but also when you’re setting shareholder value, gifting shares to family members, or even settling a dispute.
Those are the times you need specialized CPAs with in-depth knowledge about business valuation — credentialed professionals with advanced training and known for their sound judgment and precision in calculating fair market value.
And you’ll find them on Barnes Dennig’s business valuation team.
What we do
There are no shortcuts to a credible analysis of value. Our professionals take the time to understand your company and the unique set of circumstances you face.
They perform valuations for:
- Buy/sell agreements
- Estate taxes
- Financial reporting
- Mergers & acquisitions
- Ownership disputes
- Damages in business transactions
Depending on your needs, our team can generate anything from a full-company analysis to focused valuations of ownership interests, stocks, or intangible assets.
The value we bring
Barnes Dennig’s business valuation clients enjoy the benefits of:
Our diverse knowledge base
Our cross-functional business valuation team includes CPAs, Certified Valuations Analysts (CVAs), an attorney, a mergers and acquisition specialist and business broker, and a former IRS agent. Their combined experience and insights create a holistic perspective and in-depth understanding of issues from many different angles – so all your bases are covered.
Our extensive experience
We’ve completed more than 700 business valuations over the past 30 years. Our professionals have testified in court about their valuations and served as expert witnesses on the subject.
Custom service levels
We offer varied levels of service to meet any budget level – from a comprehensive valuation engagement where detailed support is needed, such for IRS support purposes, litigation support, or a complicated divorce, to a “calculation of value,” which is less extensive (and less expensive) but still provides insights on a company’s worth.
Our business valuation professionals are Certified Valuations Analysts (CVA) through the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA) and are members of national and international accounting standard-setting bodies. Our team also includes a professional certified as an Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which provides valuation guidance in financial reporting.
