Experienced & Professional Staff

Given the diverse experience of our professional staff and their collective exposure to virtually all industries, we are aware of industry specific issues and trends which impact value at the outset of the engagement. This is critical as inexperienced practitioners and firms often fail to realize key industry issues and trends until after their value is called into question.

CVA has been a valued partner for Bowtech, Inc., a leading archery products manufacturer, providing valuation services for acquired companies as well equity-based compensation securities.
