Quality of Earnings

Uncovering the value of reported earnings

Recent volatility in the markets driven by the pandemic has impacted how investors, private equity groups,  and businesses approach acquisitions. With the significant interest in conducting mergers and acquisitions, buyers are scrutinizing the target company’s financial condition. Now more than ever, Texas buyers are taking the extra steps to conduct meaningful due diligence to ensure the viability of the investment. The additional emphasis on due diligence has led to an interest in more comprehensive quality of earnings (QoE) reports.

Calvetti Ferguson has significant experience serving the transaction advisory needs of businesses and investors in Texas and across the U.S. Our team has conducted dozens of QoE analyses across a number of industries including construction, technology, manufacturing and distribution, energy and oilfield services, waste management, healthcare, and many more. Our seasoned professionals carefully review the financial details to identify deal points and risks before and after a transaction concludes. Regardless of the industry, our team has the practical experience and technical knowledge to arm you with the information needed.

The Calvetti Ferguson difference

Our firm offers customized QoE reports and provides “a la carte” pricing which is based on an initial review of financials and a scoping discussion. This customizable approach gives the client an opportunity to adjust the scope of procedures to fit the specific deal parameters.
