CEIV and MPF
Marshall & Stevens has adopted the Mandatory Performance Framework (“MPF”) prescribed under the Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations (“CEIV”) credential for all financial reporting assignments.
The CEIV credential is intended for professionals who perform fair value measurements for public company financial statement reporting purposes. This includes estimating the fair values of businesses and/or business interests for goodwill impairment testing and stock compensation purposes, and intangible assets for purchase price allocation and impairment testing purposes.
All participants in the CEIV certification program follow a Mandatory Performance Framework, which serves as a guide that defines the necessary work to provide supportable and auditable fair value measurements for financial reporting purposes. The Framework also helps to ensure the consistency and transparency of those reports.
Marshall & Stevens’ clients include financial investors (private equity funds, business development corporations, etc.) and public and private companies in a broad range of industries.
