England & Company’s senior bankers have extensive experience serving as financial advisors when an independent voice matters most. We provide independent fairness opinions, solvency opinions, and valuations to public and private companies, boards of directors, and special committees concerning mergers, acquisitions, and other complex transactions.
Fairness Opinions & Valuations
Despite the best of intentions, deal advisors have an inherent conflict of interest when opining on the fairness of transactions on which they advise. Selection of an objective, knowledgeable and experienced investment banker to provide the fairness opinion, rather than one with a stake in the deal, will go far toward providing the protection a board needs in these litigious times.
Our clients benefit from senior-level attention, in-depth industry expertise, and England’s strength in the private capital markets to produce thoughtful, well-supported opinions and valuations that are independent, free of conflict, and capable of withstanding third-party scrutiny.
The firm’s capabilities in providing opinions and valuations include:
- Analyzing the company and transaction utilizing a broad range of sophisticated valuation methodologies that are supported by practical transaction experience and market intelligence from our industry and capital markets experts
- Preparing thoroughly researched and detailed presentations for clients which substantiate our opinion or valuation
- Providing supporting testimony for our opinion or valuation
