Stout was engaged by a global manufacturer and marketer of specialty chemicals and building materials to provide valuation services related to an acquisition.
Our role was to determine the fair value of certain assets acquired in the transaction, which involved the purchase of polyolefin catalyst technologies, trademarks, and production plants in Texas and Spain. Polyolefin catalyst technologies are used commercially in slurry processes for the production of high-density polyethylene catalyst resins. The scope of our work included estimating the fair market value of certain legal entities and allocation of assets values to the legal entities.
Our analysis was used by client management to satisfy tax and financial reporting requirements.
