We enrich our experience with our own research and insights into global best practice gained through our involvement in global organisations and scientific research projects.

We are a reliable partner in challenging and non-standard projects. We are mainly engaged in projects in the following areas:

Our values and
our vision

We focus on details that can often highlight hidden problematic points and change the way clients, courts and tribunals view the issues.

 

We distil complex issues into easily understandable information and data so that our partners and clients are able to make the best decisions possible based on facts and their impartial interpretation.

We are used to thinking in a broader context. Throughout our analysis, we are open to any and all ideas. We search for the best solutions, no matter who they come from.

We never compromise on quality. We value integrity, ethics, responsibility, and objectivity.

ANALYTICAL BOUTIQUE

We serve as a premium analytical boutique that offers complex financial advisory services.

APPLIED RESEARCH

We follow the latest global trends in finance and focus on the development of applied research throughout Europe.

EDUCATION

We organise conferences for professionals in the financial sector and design training courses to educate practitioners in the field of valuation as well as for the general public.

Analytical Boutique

 

Litigation, Arbitration and Competition Economics

We provide comprehensive strategic and analytical support on economic issues. We build on our practical experience from a variety of disputes before Czech courts or arbitration tribunals.

We also prepare expert reports on specific topics within a given dispute. We employ the global best practice.

In the area of competition economics, a clear analysis of the relevant market or market share quantification can help.

 
 

Insolvency

We provide economic and financial support to insolvency administrators, debtors and creditors regarding assets and liabilities valuation. We help to understand challenging economic aspects of insolvency proceedings.

During preparation of valuation reports for creditors' committees, insolvency practitioners or distressed companies’ management, we draw on our courtroom and investigation experience.

 

Restructuring

We provide detailed financial advisory support during planning and implementation of restructuring process. We help to identify problematic aspects of the business.

As part of the restructuring process, we may prepare a financial model to help you gain a complete picture of debt refinancing, liquidity or other financial decisions.

 

M&A

When negotiating a purchase price, an independent valuation of the company or other assets involved in the transaction is useful. The valuation will take into account the findings of due diligence, provide a better understanding of the value of the company and provide arguments for negotiation with the counterparty.

We may prepare a financial model to assist in internal decision making or discussions regarding raising financing.

If required by company authorities or legislation, we will prepare a fairness opinion.

 

Financial modelling

We prepare specific financial models for financing, or pricing purposes, bid evaluation and other purposes. We also perform model review and model audit for third parties.

 

We can advise on how to adjust or streamline an existing model.

Specific analyses

We have worked on most of the largest squeeze-outs and takeover bids in the Czech Republic.

We also have experience with the largest financial assistance that have been done in the Czech Republic.

It may be appropriate to perform a solvency test before paying high dividends.

We specialize on economic support in any non-standard financial situations requiring in-depth analysis and detailed understanding.
