Business Valuation Case Study

A client with a complex capital structure needed guidance related to the valuation of a preferred security with an embedded derivative. We assisted the client through:

  • Appling applicable guidance to determine the preferred security met the requirements for separability. Bifurcated the preferred security into a host contract and embedded derivative under ASC 815
  • Drafting a technical position paper outlining the position of the company and the planned course of action
  • Preparing a fair value analysis under ASC 820 employing option pricing methodology

Due to our extensive experience, our client was able to address a complex accounting issue in a timely manner and deliver an analysis that met the expectation of their auditor.
