We engaged Pluris to consult with us and to provide expert witness testimony regarding the impairment of value of restricted stock in a public company due to a failure to register the stock as agreed. Pluris exceeded all expectations in the quality and clarity of his advice, written report, and unflappable performance in trial in federal district court (in both direct and cross examination). We obtained an exceptional verdict from the Court, which accepted in full Mr. Robak's conclusions over the objections of the defendant and the efforts of their expert witness to undermine Mr. Robak’s opinions. Our selection of Pluris was a key decision that enabled us to succeed in meeting our burden of proof and prevailing in this highly complex litigation. We highly recommend Espen Robak as a valuation consultant and expert witness.

Pluris’ expertise in valuing illiquid securities is impressive. Their discount estimates were precisely in line with an actual subsequent sale of my client’s thinly traded stock.

For the better part of the last four years, we have engaged Pluris Valuation Advisors, LLC, to establish opinions of value for hard-to-value securities in our Fund's portfolio. We value the scope of their analysis, their prompt and professional service, their willingness to explain the rationale behind the output, and, above all, their independence. Their work has proved especially valuable in providing an appropriate level of support for the annual independent audit of the Fund.
George J. McVey, Jr., CFO
Dynamis Advisors, LLC & IMVA, LLC
I consider Pluris to be an industry leader in providing valuations for hard-to-value securities. Pluris offers our clients an excellent independent source of valuations for embedded derivatives, convertible preferred, and warrants. They always provide responsive, helpful service and robust valuation reports. Their proprietary research and valuation data is key in an age when you can’t just apply the Black-Scholes model anymore. With Pluris, our clients get the best audit support conceivable. I look forward to working with them in the future and recommending them again to our clients.

I have worked with Pluris since 2008 when the auction rate securities market collapsed and there was an increased need for professional valuation services to support our balance sheet value for such securities. In the past few years, I have been satisfied with the quality of the valuation services performed by Pluris, the level of audit support provided, and the competitive pricing of their service. I look forward to continuing to work with them.

Pluris was highly recommended to me and they did not disappoint. Professional and efficient, their proprietary model yielded a thorough and well documented valuation of my student loan auction rate security portfolio and I would recommend them to anyone struggling with valuations of these complex investments.

The University of North Alabama's Center for Business Valuation has a strong interest in research on marketability discounts. However, as with many universities these days, we have limited funds for such databases. Therefore, I did quite a bit of reading before selecting the Pluris DLOM Database.

Pluris Valuation Advisors have been a great resource for our valuation needs. They have met tight deadlines and provided solid audit support. I would highly recommend Pluris and their team.

We had the opportunity to work with Pluris on a very complex valuation assignment. Pluris exceeded my expectations on all accounts. I was impressed with the commitment the Pluris team showed to our relationship, and I look forward to working with them again.

BJ's Restaurants, Inc.
I’ve worked with Pluris on local estate and gift tax appraisal matters several times now, and I could not be happier with their service. They do an excellent job with their research and analysis on entity valuations, but also do not shy away from the more unusual assets. Their staff was great to work with, delivering a thorough, well-written report in a timely manner, with excellent follow-up throughout. I look forward to working with Pluris again and highly recommend their services to other trust & estate practitioners.
