Business Valuation (Operating Entities)
Due to the heightened scrutiny by the IRS, SEC, and other regulatory agencies, the need for an independent, qualified, and experienced valuation advisor is more important than ever. Our robust data and knowledge of closely scrutinized assumptions in the context of regulatory changes within each product group are the foundation of our defensible valuations.
Pluris uses all standard, accepted valuation methods including cost, income and market approaches, to arrive at defensible valuations. Our analyses are supported by proprietary market data from SecondMarket, which is licensed to Pluris on an exclusive basis. SecondMarket has established the largest trading market for illiquid assets, including private company stock, limited partner positions, and restricted securities. Data from Bloomberg, FactSet, and other authoritative sources are also integral inputs. Most importantly, for many business valuations, our data on valuation discounts from LiquiStat and the Pluris DLOM Database is unparalleled in the valuation profession.
