Under the United States Code ("U.S.C.") Title 11, bankruptcy is a legal procedure for dealing with debt problems of an individual or business (the "debtor"). Bankruptcy is a legal declaration of the inability or impairment of an individual or company’s ability to meet and pay their liabilities. Knowing the bankruptcy value of the business and its assets is critical to the restructuring process.
In any bankruptcy or restructuring proceeding, expert asset appraisals and business valuations are crucial to maintaining the confidence of the creditors' committee or trustee. We are experts in valuing tangible assets and intangible assets. Whether filing under Chapter 7 to liquidate assets, or under Chapter 11 in efforts to reorganize, we have the personnel, expertise, and resources required to provide the kind of bankruptcy appraisals and valuations that can withstand scrutiny.
Whether you are a trustee, part of a creditor committee, or head of a distressed company, our experienced and skilled staff can provide a range of supportable conclusions of value, such as:
•Orderly liquidation value
•Forced liquidation value
•Going concern value
We provide these values (before, during, and after bankruptcy filing) for the business as a whole and for:
•Tangible assets, such as machinery, equipment, land, buildings, improvements, etc.
•Intangible assets, such as trade names, patents, designs, etc.
Whether the issue is secured or unsecured creditor collateral, adequate protection, solvency, fraudulent conveyance, fresh start accounting, or related tax issues, our expert bankruptcy valuations and bankruptcy appraisals can help facilitate the reorganization or restructuring process.
