  • Purchase Price Allocations (under ASC 805) – Provide a supportable basis for acquired intangible assets, including identifying the related useful lives.
  • Goodwill Impairment Testing (under ASC 350) – Determine whether an impairment of goodwill or other long-lived intangible assets has occurred and, if so, the amount of impairment to apply.
  • Stock Valuations (under ASC 718 or IRC §409A) – Establish a supportable basis of common stock or preferred stock for financial reporting or tax needs; such analyses may be related to establishing stock option exercise prices or derivative securities.
  • Fairness Opinions – Provide an evaluation of the fairness of a proposed transaction to provide decision-making guidance to corporate officers.
  • Intellectual Property – Assess the economic value of patents, trademarks/trade names/copyrights, or other intellectual property for proposed transactions or financial reporting needs.
