In Russia, the right to request a debt from a debtor can be bought and sold under cession agreement.
Very often, parties of such transactions require an independent valuation to be done prior to closing of the cession agreement.
The value of debt of a legal entity is mostly determined by debtor’s financial conditions and his ability and willingness to repay the debt.
The risk of non-payment is always there, so in each case a professional valuer must accurately estimate the amount of discount, corresponding to the existing risk.
Our experience shows that the need for debt valuation most often arise when analyzing the company’s financial performance, assigning claims or settling the mutual
claims between companies. We provide reliable professional valuation services in regard to debts and financial obligations in Russia.
Our work in debt valuation will result in a written valuation report, stating the fair market value of the subject debt (claim) as of the valuation date.
Under the current Russian legislation, the valuation report prepared by an independent valuer can be used in court and other official institutions as an evidence.
