Our team has the investment banking, corporate development, and accounting expertise required for buyers or sellers with strategic enterprise valuations to facilitate a merger or acquisition.
We are able to provide buyers with preliminary valuations of intangible assets to determine the implied goodwill of a particular purchase price and to facilitate a quick turnaround of an ASC 805 (formerly SFAS 141R) valuation once the deal is closed.
Due diligence is crucial to the success of any acquisition. Frank, Rimerman can provide you with the high-quality financial due diligence to ensure a successful transaction.
We evaluate both qualitatively and quantitatively how a company has performed financially to get a sense of earnings on a normalized basis. We consider the forecasted performance of a business, look at the underlying forecast assumptions, and ensure they’re reasonable and objective. We also carefully review the assets and liabilities to be acquired. And our skilled tax professionals can help with tax structuring and reporting issues related to the acquisition.
