Troy Valuations Inc. is an independent expert engaged to provide a conclusion of value of a business. Troy Valuations is a member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators, the leading organization for business valuation in Canada. A business valuation report is a written communication containing a conclusion as to the value of shares, assets or an interest in a business written by Troy Valuations.
In practice, there are three types of Valuation Reports. These Reports are not only distinguished by the scope of review and the amount of disclosure provided, but also by the level of assurance being provided in the conclusion.
The type of valuation report required is a matter to be discussed and agreed on by the client and Troy Valuations, and then reflected in the terms of engagement. The valuation report will meet the needs of the client in terms of cost, assurance, disclosure and scope.
There are many purposes for needing a valuation report. Every valuation study is as unique as every company. One size doesn’t fit all. A report used for one situation may not be applicable in another, especially if significant time has passed.
The cost of a valuation report depends upon among other things:
- the purpose or use of the valuation report,
- the level of assurance,
- the breadth and depth of the scope,
- the degree of disclosure,
- the complexity of the business, including its operations, shareholding structure and financing structure, and
- the number of effective dates to be used in the report.
Upon engagement, Troy Valuations will provide a list of documents needed to commence its valuation study. The document list is intended to be complete but not exhaustive. More information may be required upon review of the information provided by the client.
Upon review of the documents provided, Troy Valuations will provide a list of in-depth questions designed to clarify the information received, understand the operations, and identify the value drivers of the business.
The amount of time required is complete a valuation report is dependent upon the type of report and the speed at which information is delivered to Troy Valuations. We are committed to a high level of service to meet the diverse and unique needs of each of our clients. The highest standards of honesty, integrity and professionalism are applied from an independent and objective to provide value in a timely and efficient manner.
