Whether you know the other party to your transaction or not, Transition Science can support you. The Transition Science team members are the business valuation equivalent of a real estate appraiser you'd use to appraise your house. Our business valuations provide the kind of evidence and support that all stakeholders in a transaction can depend on.
We are Accredited Senior Appraisers in Business Valuation, meaning that we are required to prepare business valuations that conform to the professional ethics and appraisal standards promulgated by The Appraisal Foundation, under its Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (“USPAP”), and The American Society of Appraisers under its Principles of Appraisal Practice. What follows are specific types of services that Transition Science can offer to buyers and sellers.
Transition Science can prepare a business valuation to support your effort to buy or sell a company. The valuations performed by Transition Science are fully-supported with industry comparable sales, statistically-proven rates of return, and an understandable and logical cash flow analysis. Transition Science prepares evidence-based business valuations, not personal opinions of value.
