The two shareholders (also working directors) of an international wholesale business in biological animal feeds no longer saw eye to eye and decided to part ways. As the seller’s advisor, Nederhof drew up a valuation analysis. The company’s regular auditors acted as the buyer’s/remaining shareholder’s advisor. Initially, the parties’ perception of the value was miles apart. Nederhof mediated in reconciling accounting reality (as seen by the buyer and the accountant) and economic reality, helping the parties bridge the gap amicably.
