Whether to meet financial reporting or tax compliance obligations, to assist in litigation procedures, or as a strategic planning opportunity related to a potential future transaction, a proper and accurate valuation is essential to guiding your economic interests. Leveraging qualified valuation specialists to determine the value of a business, tangible/intangible assets or liabilities, or individual securities can give you a competitive edge and secure a more advantageous and profitable future for you and/or your organization.

The technical aspects of valuation are complex, as is the myriad of operational, financial and market factors to be considered as part of the process. MFA combines industry, financial and business experience to decode the complexities associated with valuations and help define and direct your strategy, substantiate a position or protect an investment.
