For Valuation Firms

The GF Data Resources database helps practitioners more accurately value companies in the $10 million to $250 million value range — particularly privately owned businesses which may lack similarly sized public peers. GF Data Resources is a significant improvement on traditional valuation tools such as multiples on larger publicly announced transactions, trading multiples of public companies, and often-incomplete deal data reported by third-party sources. GF Data Resources also provides better benchmarks for meeting the Fair Value Measurement standards enacted in FASB Statement 157 which directs companies to use fair value measurement in their accounting for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2007. The Private Equity Investment Guidelines Group (PEIGG) and the CFA Institute have endorsed the fair value approach as well.
