After a top 10 global private equity firm acquired a leading manufacturer of protective packaging materials, equipment systems, and surface protection for nearly $1.5 billion, Stout valued certain time-based and performance-based options granted on the transaction date. Stout utilized a Monte Carlo analysis with 10,000 simulation paths for the company’s equity value in order to capture the asymmetric nature and distribution rights of the securities. Subsequently, Stout performed an independent equity valuation to administer the company's equity incentive plan and to comply with tax and financial reporting requirements (IRC 409A and ASC 718).
