Business Valuations


A business valuation is a process and set of procedures used to determine the fair market value of an owner’s interest in his or her business. For many business owners, their company represents a significant portion of their overall family wealth and understanding its value is often critical in executing a variety of strategies and objectives.

We provide the following types of business valuation reports, depending on the client’s needs and the purpose of the valuation:

  • Calculation valuation
  • Estimate valuation
  • Comprehensive valuation

As independent business valuators and advisors, there are many reasons why we would prepare valuation reports on the value of a business interest. Some of the more common reasons include:

  • Estate and succession planning
  • Corporate reorganizations
  • Matrimonial disputes, including the determination of net family property, income for support purposes and valuations of business interests
  • Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures
  • Employee stock options
  • Shareholder buyouts
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes including appraisal, oppression or dissent remedies under the CBCA
  • Going public/private transactions
  • Fairness opinions
  • Fair value financial reporting and goodwill impairment testing
  • Intellectual property
  • Expropriation of business interests

I have used Adam to provide me with business valuations services on a number of complex matters. His technical knowledge and quick turnaround time has given us no reason to use the larger firms when Grewal Guyatt LLP is able to provide me with these specialized services.
