Investment research provider Morningstar, Inc. has launched Morningstar Valuation Services, a program that values privately owned firms and securities in areas such as the sale of a business, estate planning or financial reporting.

The new service leverages Morningstar’s proprietary techniques for analyzing securities and the cost of capital.

The new valuation consulting service covers business valuations for companies as a whole, specific securities, or intangibles across all major industries and for firms of any size. Independent business appraisals through Morningstar Valuation Services can help owners assign value for a sale, shareholder transactions, succession planning, employee stock option plans, fairness opinions, or purchase price allocation.

Valuations of intangibles are also available, such as patents, startups, royalty streams and goodwill. Additionally, the valuation team continues to provide litigation support and expert witness testimony in situations where business valuations are contested.
