Case Study

An investor gets another chance to value their business

Problem: An investor in an early-stage business had been forced out through a compulsory share buyout in what presented as an undervalued share price, and came to Aptum to initiate a substantial professional negligence claim against the professional accounting firm who had conducted the business valuation.

Aptum’s role: Aptum reopened the valuation to provide our client with a voice in the process of determining the value of shares,

Outcome: Aptum worked closely with the client and a litigation funder to achieve a successful outcome within 12 months of issuing proceedings.

Aptum ensured the director recived a fair amount based on their interest in the business.
