Business Valuation Services

PRIMARY CONTACTS: Thomas Pratt CPA, ABV, CFF, CVA (Pittsburgh), Stephen Thimons CVA, CFE (Pittsburgh)

The valuation of any business or asset is a complex task that includes, among other things, detailed financial analyses, a deep understanding of the subject company and the industry/economic environment in which it operates, and the application of multiple valuation techniques. The necessary insight required to prepare a reasoned and supportable valuation analysis is the product of both significant real-world experience and a theoretical understanding of key business valuation concepts.  

The professionals that make up Schneider Downs’ business valuation management team have an average of 20 years of experience in providing business valuation and other advisory services.  This depth of experience is further enhanced by the fact that each individual has also earned industry-recognized certifications in the area of business valuation, including as Certified Valuation Analysts (CVAs) from the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts, and as Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
