Valuations

Know what your business is worth so you can make decisions from a position of strength

Volatility is common in Canada’s energy industry. Valuations are a strategic foundation to help you navigate uncertainty from a position of strength. A firm understanding of your business’ worth is critical if you need to secure financing, grow through a merger – or are looking to exit or divest assets.

MNP’s multifaceted Valuations team will help you understand your business and the variables that impact its worth. Our professionals are often relied upon for everything from legal disputes to fairness opinions, and appraisals of assets for business transactions. We’ll provide you with a clear and well-documented assessment that stands up to the toughest scrutiny.
