The valuation term "fair market value" is fundamental for dissolution and the buyout of ownership interests in ongoing businesses.
However, if the dissolution is under the California Corporations Code Section 2000, the standard becomes "fair value". Fair value and fair market value are not synonymous, and should not be confused.
Our firm has been appointed by the Court in over 20 Section 2000 assignments. On two occasions, valuations prepared by our firm were affirmed by the California Court of Appeal. One case involved a corporate dissolution under Section 2000 of the California Corporations Code which was affirmed as to approach and opinion of value in Abrams vs. Abrams-Rubiloff & Co. 114 Cal. App. 3d 240, 170 Cal. Rptr. 656 (1980). The other matter involved a dissolution of marriage matter, affirmed as to approach and opinion by the California Court of Appeal (Marriage of Hilliard, 2nd Civ.No. 52898, unpublished). Superior Court Case No. D 858 256.
