CASE STUDY

Reorganization of Family Business

BACKGROUND

A second-generation family business was experiencing strife between the key members of management. As a result, the board of directors was recommending a reorganization of the company into two entities.

CHALLENGE

SOLUTION

The Perkins valuation team worked through many scenarios assembling assets into packages to evaluate their operating effectiveness together, as well as tax basis, after-tax values, and assumptions regarding timing of sales and cash flows.
