M&A Valuations

Arriving at a valuation opinion you can trust requires science, art and collaboration.

It isn't every day you buy or sell a business – or a portion of one. Naturally, when you sell, you want top dollar. For most closely held businesses, however, arriving at that right price is challenging.

If you're buying, is the price they're asking really what it's worth?

During any transaction, a knowledgeable, unbiased and well-supported valuation opinion can provide the strong foundation you need for your negotiations. That's why private equity groups and businesses in a wide variety of industries look to RSM for their valuation opinions. RSM professionals value businesses every day. They know what to look for and what your buyer will see.

As a national firm with a global reach, RSM valuation professionals have access to the accounting, technical and industry knowledge that's so important to providing an accurate business valuation. And engaging RSM for your valuation allows you to focus your attention where it needs to be – on your day-to-day business operations.

We include you in the process

The valuation process we use has been proven over time. Not only do we gather and analyze the relevant information, providing you with a written valuation report, but we also review it with you so you clearly understand how we determined the value.
