$4.3 billion acquisition for long-standing, public company client

In connection with a $4.3 billion acquisition, Stout provided acquisition accounting valuation advisory services for a long-standing, public company client. The acquired company is a designer and manufacturer of engineered products and systems for aerospace and defense customers across the globe.

The scope of the project included the valuation of several asset categories, including personal property, real property, favorable and unfavorable leases, and intangible assets across 20 reporting units. The intangible asset categories included within the acquired business were trade names and trademarks, proprietary technology, backlog, customer relationships, and loss contracts.

Upon completion of the acquisition accounting valuation for financial reporting purposes, Stout’s scope of work was expanded to discretely value various legal entities acquired within the transaction for tax planning and compliance purposes.
