Advisory and Risk

Many acquisitions fail to live up to expectations. The reasons range from poor deal structure, poor strategic fit, failure to identify problems with the quality of earnings, overly optimistic estimates of synergies, to lack of an integration plan.

Evaluating a company in another country compounds these risks. You are dealing with a different language and cultural barriers; different business ethics, legal systems, filing regulations, and accounting principles; transfer pricing that affects taxation – and often government involvement. But international deals often provide the best growth opportunities. They can offer improved returns from economies of scale, new target markets for existing products/services, access to commodity materials, and a hedge against seasonality.

When buying or selling a company, merging several entities or taking part in a management buy-out, one of many questions asked is, how much is the business worth? A valuation of business requires more then merely looking at last year's financial statement or valuation of assets. Valuation analysts have to consider the economic environment, analyze financial statements, and consider how tax and other regulations impact the value of the business. We have experience in conducting of valuations for different purposes, such as:

  • Business valuations before -    acquisitions, merger or sell-off
  • Appraisals for contributions in kind, swapping of assets and joint ventures
  • Assets and business valuation for accounting purposes (goodwill, impairment of tangible and intangible assets)
  • Independent valuation in case of disputes and litigations
  • Valuations on applications for financing from banks, venture funds, etc

We assist our clients with every crucial task involved with the sale or liquidation of your business, including:

  • Divestment and liquidation strategy development and analysis
  • Finding investors from the Baltic states and other countries
  • Assessing the value of the company
