Pearson Adair & Co. provides valuation services to stakeholders in the energy space. Determination of value is dependent on many factors that are unique to each assignment. In determining value, our professionals draw from our extensive knowledge base to complete supply/demand and market assessments, price and margin forecasts, and evaluation of actual financial results, including auditing and backward-looking analyses. We also deliver stand-alone analyses with respect to the components of valuation if needed to support overall valuation assessments led by others. We can provide detailed documentation of our work in prose reports, or in summary form with more limited documentation depending on client needs.
Our professionals are frequently retained to offer valuation opinions associated with complete business units or corporations, stand-alone assets, stand-alone projects, individual contracts, and specific process units/equipment. Pearson Adair & Co. also advises clients regarding allocation of value in situations as diverse as allocation of sales transactions or gas processing contract proceeds. Valuation opinions may be provided to support dispute resolution, for asset appraisals, to complete feasibility assessments and for formal valuation of insurance claims, including property loss and business interruption. Whether your needs are limited to niche market assessment or require worldwide market assessment, Pearson Adair professionals have the market, technical, and commercial knowledge and experience to evaluate most aspects of the energy value chain.
