Fairness Opinions

GT Securities provides business advisory services to ensure that companies are acting in fair manner and using sound business judgment.

In developing fairness opinion offerings, we determine whether a merger, acquisition, buyback, spin-off, or buyout is a fair and viable option for that company.

This process involves interviewing key management and key company advisors, visiting the company’s facilities, analyzing financial statements, reviewing transaction documents, and researching and understanding trends within the industry to properly evaluate the company.

Our fairness opinion service offering assists directors, investors, trustees and board members of a company in gaining clarity into the soundness of a deal. We make transparent the level of care and value a third party has provided to shareholders about the financial fairness of a pending transaction.

Our fairness opinion process includes the following components:


  • Valuation analysis of a target company as well as alternative companies
  • Evaluation of the business rationale to proceed with the proposed transaction
  • Opinion as to the legal fairness of the proposed transaction


We present the fairness opinion as a professionally formatted research report that a board of directors or controlling shareholder of a target company can use to approve the proposed transaction.
