Business Valuation - The determination of the appropriate value of a business enterprise is an important element of many business transactions. Periodic or annual business valuations are required or advisable to support:

  • Transactions in the stock of closely held companies e.g. in Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP) and pursuant to buy-sell agreements
  • Estate planning considerations
  • Disputes and controversies between business owners
  • Disagreements with governmental agencies
  • Debt and equity financing

Because of the frequency and importance of transactions involving a knowledge of business values, the services of the independent business valuator are often critical to the success of a business transaction and can readily influence the economic consequences thereof.

West Consulting Group is uniquely qualified to perform business valuations, report thereon, substantiate the values to third parties and, if necessary, testify in court. Mr. West, the principal, is a Certified Business Appraiser as designated by The Institute of Business Appraisers, Inc.

Corporate Restructuring - In spite of the best of intentions and with adequate planning, often times a company's financial performance is adversely affected by a weak economy, changes in markets for its products, or other factors beyond its control. As a result, it may become difficult to meet the terms of previously existing debt agreements. In those situations, there arises a need to restructure the terms, conditions or amounts of debt. West Consulting Group assists businesses and their owners in determining the debt retirement capability of the business and in negotiating revisions to existing agreements with lenders and investors.

Capital Formation - Assisting businesses in finding debt capital or new debt sources and maintaining a network of lenders and investors seeking these opportunities is a function of capital formation. This service is also often associated with the mergers and acquisition process.

West Consulting Group assists businesses and individuals in determining proper capital structure and, through the capital formation process, matches the capital needs to commercial banks, nonregulated lenders, mezzanine lenders, investment groups, merchant banks, venture capital companies or private investors.
