The fast paced and high-risk environment of the current healthcare transaction space has fostered a heightened level of scrutiny from both investors and regulatory bodies. Boards of directors, corporate fiduciaries, and trustees alike are utilizing trusted advisory services to provide fairness opinions across a wide variety of transactions to ensure that third party objectivity and reliability is maintained throughout the entirety of the deal process.

A fairness opinion is an assessment, from a financial perspective, of the fairness of the consideration received in a selected transaction. Fairness opinions involve a valuation and detailed analysis of the consideration to be received in a particular transaction to support a decision to proceed with a transaction. For a transaction to be financially fair, the consideration does not have to represent the highest or best possible price, it only has to represent a fair price that falls within a reasonable range of value.

VMG Health provides a wide range of fairness opinions that include, but are not limited to:

  • Sale or merger transactions
  • Private transactions
  • Related-party transactions
  • Board member requested fairness opinion
  • Non-profit conversions (state attorney general review)
  • Buy-side advisory
  • Sell-side advisory
