Valuations and Fairness Opinions 

Companies seek valuations or fairness opinions for corporate governance or regulatory reasons, or because management wants to know the value of an asset, subsidiary or investment to aid business decisions. In these instances the company is at a critical moment in its life. It may be planning a major acquisition, resolving a shareholder or joint venture dispute, or seeking to reduce the gap between intrinsic and market value.
