Over a 10-year period, we have been the trusted advisor to a multi-billion-dollar publicly traded technology and telecom client. We initially assisted with acquisition accounting valuations for multiple targets as the company expanded its platform, capabilities, and scale. Over the years, we assisted with acquisition accounting, stock compensation, goodwill impairment testing, and fairness opinions. When our client was acquired by a leading private equity company, we assisted with the complex purchase accounting requirements for both financial reporting and tax purposes. The client had over 15 internally developed technology assets, customer relationships, deferred revenue, and other intangible assets. In addition, we were asked to provide complex modeling to fairly value the company's employee profit-share interests. We considered various methods to allocate value among the different equity classes, including an option pricing method and Monte Carlo approach.
