Transaction Advisory Services can help you assess the risks, opportunities, and needs in mergers and acquisitions.
In good times and in bad, transactions, M&As, and asset divestitures are key components of an asset allocation strategy. A thorough and proper examination of assets provides an essential projection of future financial upside and helps a prospective buyer more fully understand the potential benefits, liabilities, and constraints associated with the transaction. What if the information to which you had access was on a different level than current, publicly available data? How might that information and insight impact your decisions?
Solomon’s historic database of non-public data across a broad range of assets—on top of our industry-trusted comparative performance data, methodology, and deep industry experience—provides needed assurance and risk mitigation to both buyers and sellers. A complete examination relying on this level of data reduces risk and increases the probability that a portfolio addition will deliver the anticipated long-term value for the business. Sellers can also highlight how their asset might justify a price that appropriately reflects the true value.

Solomon will use its updated databases of energy asset sales to ensure accurate data that can be trusted.
