Delphi provides independent, experienced, and in-depth analysis to determine the fairness of potential M&A transactions involving private entities. Fairness opinions may be used by a company’s board of directors, special committee, buyers, sellers, trustees and investors to determine the fairness of proposed consideration for a transaction.
The primary critique of most fairness opinions is the lack of independence. A clear conflict arises when the opinion is rendered by the investment bank whose fee is contingent on the deal closing. Delphi’s position as valuation experts being paid only a fee for service, rather than investment bankers, allows for true independence and impartial, unbiased opinions. Our expertise and experience in valuing companies across industries and sizes allow us to provide high quality, unbiased opinions.
