What can our business acumen and industry focus help you do?

Michael Jurnak

Investors want to know they can count on your numbers and analyses.  BerryDunn helps you stand up to the toughest scrutiny.

Increase your chances for success with the right advice and experience.

We work with publicly-traded and privately-held companies and private equity firms, helping everyone on your team understand the strengths and weaknesses of the transaction or the acquisition target. Some on our team come from Big 4 firms, some draw on their private sector experience. You’ll work directly with seasoned talent who bring more than just accounting and tax skills to the table. 

Many of our clients have highly sophisticated accounting and reporting issues, coupled with complex capital structures. We use our expertise to guide you through the process, help you gain control of opportunities that arise during the deal, and focus on what you need for a successful transaction.

We give our clients an edge.

From pre-deal analysis and financial due diligence to execution and post-deal recommendations, we make the process smoother and share the insights you need to make the best decisions. We communicate the issues and opportunities concisely and clearly so everyone on your team understands the options. Because we focus on learning your business and knowing your industry, we work with you to take advantage of opportunities that can make your business more competitive and successful. The services we provide align with the various stages of your transaction, from beginning to end.

Our mergers and acquisitions expertise begins with the preliminary deal analysis and financial due diligence including:

  • Deal structure review - addressing both accounting and tax issues
  • Deal negotiation and purchase price determination and allocation
  • Purchase and sale document review
  • Preparation and analysis of prospective financial information
  • Accounting practices assessment

BerryDunn's valuation and business consulting experts work as part of the team, providing a thorough analysis of the myriad components of a transaction. We not only identify a company's value drivers, we can recommend strategic improvements to increase its value, while minimizing taxes.

We bring our experience to bear on:

  • Stock and asset purchase acquisitions
  • Leveraged buyouts
  • Management leveraged buyouts
  • Recapitalizations
