We were retained to provide financial advisory and valuation assistance to the board of a privately held energy company in its acquisition of shares held by a minority interest. We provided financial assistance to the board in assessing the value of the minority interest and the fairness of the transaction.
The company is an international refining and marketing company with production in excess of 300,000 barrels of oil per day. The company’s operations include downstream oil distribution assets, oil transportation, real estate, and terminals.
Our analysis involved a detailed review of the company’s historical performance and outlook, an assessment of industry and market conditions, a review of public market metrics, and a determination of the value of the business and its different components. We presented our findings to the board and assisted in the completion of a successful transaction.
