Valuation Services

Diamond offers a complete range of valuation services. Diamond professionals have performed thousands of valuations over the years, from routine valuations to highly complex valuations for customers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to middle-market companies and state and public institutions. Formal valuations are often required not only in conjunction with specific transactions, but in also in tax, governance, and financial reporting matters as well as in litigation support. There are numerous circumstances beyond the sale mandate in which valuation services are essential. A few of the most commonly requested and performed are fairness opinions, partner buy/sell agreements, estate planning and estate tax opinions, shareholder disputes, annual ESOP evaluations, and portfolio evaluations.
