It is often important to an executive or board of directors to have a fairness opinion prepared by an independent valuation firm in connection with a merger, takeover, or other business transaction. Fairness opinions help protect the officer or director from a potential complaint by another employee or shareholder who likely has less information regarding the overall business and the relevant transaction. Davis/Chambers has a long track record of providing fairness opinions for a wide variety of businesses and transactions. Our experience and fluency in business transactions enables our firm to efficiently analyze the deal structure, terms, price, legality and potential conflicts. We also perform intensive analysis of the risks (general economic, industry, company specific, etc.), comparable transactions, and other internal and external factors that help determine whether the transaction is fair.
