Valuation: Making valuations that inform decisions

Valuation is about more than quantifying the intrinsic worth of an asset or business. We integrate corporate finance, accounting and market research to help businesses balance opportunity with risk. As specialists, not generalists, our valuations are free of conflicts of interest and in accordance with the relevant rules and regulations.

Liability / Casualty


In product recall we may need to consider competitive analysis and in-depth market analysis to value the wider impact of the recall. Whereas a personal injury claim for a business owner may involve valuing their business to ascertain what they have lost as a result of the incident.

Financial Lines


Valuation comes into play across many areas including directors and officers, political risk, surety bonds, trade credit and cyber liability. Here the underlying events may have caused either a total destruction or a diminution of business value, which we measure by comparing the value of the business before and after the event.



We apply our valuation expertise across disputes as diverse as shareholder and partnership or investment treaty. We may, for example, make a complex assessment of what a public company would have been worth if the directors had not made a certain decision, or prepare a simpler valuation in the emotionally charged environment of a dissolved partnership. 

Corporate Consulting


Valuation is critical in corporate consulting. We may conduct customer lifetime analyses to determine a company’s most profitable customers now and in the future, or calculate the cost of capital as part of financial analysis in a regulated industry. In all cases, we help business executives make better decisions.

Transaction Advisory


Transaction advisory services draw heavily on our valuation expertise. We may value a business so a company can make a well-informed acquisition decision, provide valuation-driven strategic advice to better understand risk parameters, structure a financial transaction, or many other variations on the theme. All of this benefits from the true involvement of senior BTVK Advisory professionals throughout.

Business Plan Misses Solvency

Performed a solvency test and business valuation for an eco-products company in Colorado. Due to a variety of factors, the company had been unable to execute its business plan as quickly as its pro forma schedule called for and filed for bankruptcy protection. We provided analysis of the company’s financial business plan and determined that, after a review of liabilities, assets and cash flow, solvency was not achievable.

Valuation Analysis

Performed a valuation analysis of a US $700 million ownership interest in a collection of natural gas pipelines and natural gas storage facilities serving the southern United States. The limited partnership’s conflicts committee recommended the transaction to the common unitholders, but an independent valuation was required for these midstream assets, which were owned by the general partner of a master limited partnership (MLP) and were being sold to the limited partnership in a related-party dropdown transaction.

“When related party transactions occur, independent, objective valuation advice is key to ensuring an equitable outcome for the stakeholders involved.”
