Buy-Sell Agreements

Buy-sell agreements can be used as a succession planning tool that provides an exit strategy for owners and business continuity.  Agreements that use predetermined formulas to establish a transaction price are rarely a reasonable proxy for fair market value, since business and industry conditions can change over time.  In addition, formulas used in buy-sell agreements may not be accepted by the IRS as indicative of fair market.

It is becoming more common for buy-sell agreements to stipulate that transactions must occur at fair market value.  Other agreements with investors and creditors may
involve "triggering" events that also require a fair market value estimate.  


At FairValue Advisors, our appraisals are used to assist with the buy-out and buy-in pricing, as well as the potential obligations resulting from buy-out clauses and triggering events.

FairValue Advisors has the resources and expertise to address your valuation needs.
