The Maynards Valuation Model

a. Review of assets and scope of project.

Maynards senior management reviews the proposal, according to the client's specifications, and assigns the appraiser with the highest level of relevant experience in the industry to begin the project.

b. Assets appraised: Equipment Value.

To determine the value of equipment, Maynards expert professionals appraise the assets in question, whether via desktop, on-site or at multiple production locations around the world, and create a detailed asset and condition list along with recovery values for all machinery and equipment value. Maynards maintains consistent communication with the client throughout the appraisal process, answering any questions that might arise and clarifying the valuation process and terms as needed.

c. Market research.

Maynards appraisers review extensive internal and external databases for comparable asset sales figures, examine Maynards' historical realized sales values of comparable assets, and perform industry specific research related to the assets in question. Our FLV, OLV and FMV values are then verified through confidential discussion with dealers, OEMs, and comparable online sales records. All the information is collected and examined to produce the final appraisal report. To ensure clarity and ensure that each file receives expert oversight, Maynards' senior appraisers regularly peer-review reports before submission to clients.
