Fairness opinions, board advisory and capital structure support services 

Fairness opinions and board advisory services

For a variety of reasons, you may need a third-party view on the financial fairness of a transaction when assessing the impact of a deal on your organization. We work to provide key stakeholders including executive management teams, shareholders, boards of directors and others with the objective insights needed to better evaluate a deal, reduce risk and fulfill fiduciary obligations.

In addition to providing fairness opinions, we also provide objective advice to boards and other stakeholders on broader M&A related topics your organization may need assistance with. Our investment banking professionals have deep industry and transaction experience enabling us to provide sophisticated analyses as we assess value and transaction structures, and deal related issues so you can make rapid, informed decisions.




Capital structure support services

While completing an M&A or capital raise transaction, having access to the right pool of resources and services is critical for efficiently completing the transaction while maximizing value.

If you’re resource constrained, need additional transaction support or internal analysis of a transaction our experienced teams can help. We work to ensure that you have access to a full suite of transaction services. Our capital structure support team offers financial modeling assistance for any type of transaction so you can anticipate the financial implications. In collaboration with KPMG LLP, you can also tap into a broad range of transaction-related services including IPO advisory, financial due diligence, strategy, integration & separation, and tax.
