Fairness and Solvency Opinions Demystified


January 30, 2023

In any complex business transaction, the financial drivers and risks should always be front and center. And with growing economic uncertainty, volatility, and litigation risk, it’s more important than ever to get things right when doing M&A deals, restructurings and recapitalizations, spin-offs and divestitures, and dividends. Fairness and solvency opinions are a key part of “getting things right” and in protecting directors and officers from personal liability and reputational risk if a transaction goes sideways.

Chau Hoang discussed:

  • How fairness and solvency opinions work
  • Best practices for deciding when to get a fairness or solvency opinion and how to ensure advisor independence
  • The strengths and weaknesses of fairness and solvency opinions—and where things can go wrong
  • How to maximize the likelihood that the opinion will survive the pressure of litigation
