Fairness opinions are customarily performed when a significant transaction closes, providing an analysis of a transaction’s financial fairness for which companies’ directors are held personally liable.
A fairness opinion may be required if a transaction possesses one or more of the following elements:
- Numerous shareholders
- Significant divestiture or recapitalization
- Potential conflicts of interest
- Lack of an investment banking process
The McLean Valuation Services Group has extensive experience providing fairness opinions to confirm that the directors of a corporation executed their fiduciary duty on an informed basis, in good faith, and in the honest belief that business decisions were made in the best interests of the company.
