Our Valuations team has extensive experience, having performed over 2,000 valuations for privately held companies across various industries, including software development, web-3, information technology, and biotech. These valuations serve multiple purposes, such as 409A valuations, token valuations, employee stock ownership plans, gift and estate valuations, sales and acquisitions, financial reporting, and litigation. Our team members have played a crucial role in helping numerous companies achieve successful exits through acquisitions and IPOs, with a cumulative market capitalization exceeding $20 billion.

In addition to valuation expertise, our team has significant audit experience and has successfully navigated ASC 718 audits for hundreds of clients. We have collaborated with regional accounting firms as well as all of the Big Four accounting firms, and we provide free lifetime audit support to our clients.

Within just 5 business days, most clients will receive an initial draft of your 409A valuation report, giving you the opportunity to provide feedback and ensure that the assumptions align with your expectations.
