Damages, Lost Profits, But For Analysis
Analysis of damages, lost profits and "but for" situations are all in a day's work for the expert business valuation professionals at Los Angeles based BEACo. Our team has decades of experience in analysis of corporate disputes, fraud, disagreements, facts, market trends, any economic anomalies, and much more. These are all taken into consideration to accurately determine a business' value if not for a given harmful event. Our team of appraisers will provide you with comprehensive analysis of damages, lost profits, and a documented valuation of a business, taking into consideration, internal or external economic events.
When a business has sustained damages that have forced it to shut down entirely, then the amount of damages is measured by the Fair Market Value of the businesses "prior" to the damages.
Alternately, if the damaged business has or will suffer a drop in income, then the measure of damages is calculated by forecasting that loss into the future. The present value of its projected income loss typically determines the loss due to damages.
We have had the opportunity of determining the damages sustained by businesses, professional practices and individuals as a result of water damage, fire damage, the loss of telephone service, the loss of distribution territories and other avoidable issues.
