There are a wide range of circumstances in which an independent opinion of value is required, and each different scenario requires specialist knowledge and the application of specific skills.
At different times, courts, regulators, tax authorities, shareholders and businesses will need an objective specialist to provide a valuation of an asset or business. The context and purpose of the valuation determines the approach that needs to be taken to provide an appropriate opinion
In the instance of shareholder disputes, an opinion is often required by shareholders.
In cases where boards of directors are required by the Takeover Regulation Panel to obtain appropriate external advice on an offer, a fairness opinion is required. Related party transactions may also give rise to the need for a fairness opinion in terms of the JSE Limited’s Listings Requirements.
We have the required experience to provide a robust and credible independent expert valuation.
