HVA is active in the valuation of companies operating in all facets of the entertainment industry.

This includes companies involved in the production and distribution of television shows, motion pictures, television commercials, music, and online entertainment, as well as service providers such as video and audio post production, film and tape duplication, animation and digital effects, and talent agencies.

The valuation of entertainment companies involves careful consideration of their intangible assets, particularly the various rights associated with music and film. We have been engaged to value many of the most recognizable music catalogs and film libraries in the world. On several occasions, these valuations were performed for estate purposes and withstood the scrutiny of the Internal Revenue Service. In other cases, we have been engaged to perform valuation analyses to assess the viability of future film projects for financing purposes.
