The International Valuations Standards Council (IVSC) has issued for comment draft guidelines on the provision of 'fairness opinions'.

Fairness opinions are often requisitioned in corporate transactions as a means to provide boards and other stakeholders advice as to whether the terms of a proposed transaction are fair from a financial perspective. They may be mandated by law or voluntary and valuation or valuation analysis is often at the core of the opinion.

The proposed procedural guidelines for preparing fairness opinions include the specific issues that generally need to be addressed in accepting and progressing an assignment to prepare a fairness opinion and how these relate the provisions of the International Valuation Standards (IVS).

Comments on the exposure draft close on 31 May 2012.
