DJB’s Business Valuation Group has the training and experience necessary to assess the value of most businesses. Our team includes fully accredited members of The Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators/CBV Institute who will work with you to understand and quantify the specific business issues that impact value.

Calculation, Estimate, and Comprehensive Valuation Report options provide three levels of assurance, each fulfilling different reporting requirements. We will work with you to ensure the report is appropriate for your budget and needs.

Valuation reports may be prepared for many situations including the following purposes:

  • Business investments, acquisitions, divestitures
  • Financial reporting including impairment analysis and purchase price allocations
  • Internal use and management planning
  • Litigation or negotiation
  • Matrimonial disputes
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Shareholder agreements & disputes
  • Succession & Estate planning
  • Tax planning
  • Valuing intangible assets

Our professionals are also knowledgeable and experienced in providing services beyond traditional business valuation, including:

Adjusted Income Reports – The Federal Child Support Guidelines set out the adjustments to be considered in determining a spouse’s income for child support purposes. Our professionals prepare ‘Adjusted Income Reports’ for this purpose and provide litigation support in the event that the parties are unable to reach an agreement on child and spousal support issues.

Collaborative Dispute Settlements – If you choose to take a collaborative approach to resolving your differences, our team members are trained in collaborative practices. Services that we can provide in this area include asset division, disposition cost reports, industry-based research, mediation services, and the calculation of adjusted income.

Due Diligence – If you are considering the purchase of a business you may need assistance with determining the quality and sustainability of the earnings stream you are acquiring. Alternatively, if you are considering the sale of your business you may want to ensure that the business is ‘ready for sale’ in order to give you the best chance to maximize the proceeds you receive. Our professionals can work with you to ensure that you don’t pay too much, or sell for too little.
