Purchase Price Allocation (PPA)

Purchase Price Allocation (PPA)

After an acquisition, many accounting regimes require the acquiror to identify and value the acquired assets, liabilities, goodwill, and related deferred taxes. Getting this right requires experience and local knowledge. AN Valuations is a specialist and expert in purchase price allocation with years of experience across industries and geographies. Through our global network, we can structure a team for most locations and asset classes.

PPA methods and techniques are constantly changing. As an active PPA expert, AN Valuations can approach PPA valuations from various angles. Our years and breadth of experience allow us to explain our approaches and results in a language that you understand.

PPA results are typically reviewed by your company auditor. AN Valuations takes a pragmatic approach to audit reviews and works with your auditor to achieve a streamlined result. As an experienced PPA practitioner, AN Valuations can readily understand your auditor’s concerns and often has responses prepared in advance.

AN Valuations offers 3 tiers of PPA service: full service, calculations and valuation parameters:

  • Full service: a complete set of services, ideal for a company without PPA experience or a company that prefers to completely outsource the PPA.
  • Calculations: for companies with some PPA experience but do not have valuation experts in house. Under this service, we calculate the values of pre-existing and newly acquired assets and liabilities, goodwill and deferred taxes, and you take care of the rest.
  • Valuation parameters: for companies with experience in both valuation and PPA. We provide valuation parameters, such as discount rates, royalty rates and/or license fees.
    Please do not hesitate to contact AN Valuations if you would like more information about PPA. We would be more than happy to assist you.

Companies trust us for our experience and service-minded approach.
