US GAAP Valuation Analysis-Budget: $250-$750 USD

We need an expert in US GAAP public statements, who is strong in excel and familiar with Capital IQ and has MBA quality valuation skills. The project involves spreading financial numbers over last 10 quarters from the source documents, carefully reading the footnotes, adjusting the numbers for all non cash and one time charges, calculating Total enterprise value and adjusted EBITDA multiples based on fully diluted share count using the treasury method, and then doing basic valuation analysis including comparable company and precedent transaction analysis. This would be an ongoing exercise and we would pay per company analyzed.

Additional information submitted:

Please submit relevant examples of your valuation work (and research reports if you are interested in the qualitative portion of the assignment)

There will be very basic or no forecasting beyond guidance given in the transcript. If its not clear -we would expect no projections. We have a standard model and is accompanied by specific instruction steps (see below). We focus on accuracy vs. false precision.You must read the footnotes and footnote all sources and assumptions. We assume it will take as little 4 hours to no more than 10 hours per company depending on complexity and your level of proficiency. If we work well together you can assume we will be regularly sending you additional companies for review. Please place a bid per company on that basis -purely on the quantitative portion (steps 1-4). If you are capable of/interested in filling in the qualitative (steps 5) we can add that to the fee based on quality of output.
