Corporate Valuation Services


GA’s Corporate Valuation Services division provides independent advice and valuation services that allow executives to focus on creating value while outsourcing transaction valuation activities to GA. With decades of financial advisory, tax, accounting, and transactional experience, along with billions of dollars in tangible and intangible assets appraised, GA understands asset values and provides support throughout each transaction.

Like traditional accounting firms, GA can assist with strict FASB accounting asset valuations and opening balance sheet needs, ongoing impairment testing, business and portfolio valuation, and litigation support. But while the expertise of traditional accounting firms ends at the theoretical, GA can deliver a true market-based understanding of asset value, as we handle real-world asset dispositions and auctions for hundreds of companies across dozens of industries and market sectors each year. Combined, these factors provide a higher level of accuracy that has proven invaluable to our clients at every stage of the investment lifecycle.


Financial Reporting

Companies following the financial accounting and reporting standards set forth by either the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) or the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) are required to report their financial position in a transparent manner so that assets are consistently stated at fair value. GA works with clients and their auditors to help meet these standards. read more...
