Financial Instruments

Financial instruments are complex to understand and to value. The economics of multiple contingencies rarely lend themselves to simple intuitive calculations. In fact, preparing valuation estimates that meet regulatory requirements, including financial reporting and tax, necessitates the use of complex option pricing tools and programming.

Sorbus Approach

We strive to deliver timely, transparent, and consultative service.  More than back-box calculations, our deliverables include thorough walk-throughs, what-if analyses, and cooperative interactions with auditors and technical accounting advisors, as necessary within the scope of our engagement.  Finally, our in-house software creates bespoke valuation models without or unnecessary references to third-party providers.

Our services cover the following securities:

Convertible debt, SAFEs, other debt instruments

Embedded derivatives

Stock options (performance based), warrants, other equity derivatives

Contingent considerations, earn-outs, other contingent claims

Structured cash flow instruments, i.e. P2P notes
