Fortune Brands
"We issued an RFP to Intangible Business as well as two other internationally recognized valuation firms, including a Big 4 firm. The Intangible Business team quickly understood our goals and the challenging technical and practical issues we faced in completing extensive worldwide valuation work for a multi-billion dollar acquisition in a compressed time frame. Intangible Business was able to develop a proposal that reflected in-depth knowledge of valuation requirements for the various assets being acquired. Despite being a smaller firm, Intangible Business grasped complex technical accounting concepts and associated treatment required by the structure of the transaction and worked effectively with our external auditors to ensure agreement during the entire process. Their experience was evident both in content and presentation of the deliverables, engagement challenges were addressed quickly, and they did not lose sight of the bottom line. We are pleased with the outcome of this engagement."
