Fairness Opinion Services

Contact Our Experts

As a fiduciary for your company, you need to know what you’re getting in return from your next merger, acquisition, spin-out, or other corporate transaction. A fairness opinion can help you know if you’re making the right decision that’s in your shareholders’ best interest.

While they are often commissioned during large or complex transactions, a fairness opinion valuation is just as necessary for “everyday” circumstances and is relevant to both public and private companies.

When Is a Fairness Opinion Required?

Getting an opinion from an independent advisor can be helpful if you’re dissolving, refinancing, or restructuring your operations as well as for other reasons, like ESOPs. If you’re newer to learning what a fairness opinion is and when to consider getting one, here’s a helpful guide from our team.

Why Consider Getting One?

It’s important to make sure you’re getting a fair deal and making the right decision. A fairness opinion can help you in 3 key ways.

1. Reduce Risk

Reduce risk as you exercise your fiduciary duties, to ensure you don’t make an even more costly mistake.

2. Review The Details

Ensure all financial aspects of a deal are scrutinized so you can make an informed decision that benefits your company.

3. Boost Transparency

Increase your transparency with stakeholders to show you value governance, which can lead to building a positive and trusting relationship.
