Client Spotlight: Walden Environmental Engineering – Utility Valuation
Utility Valuation can be a critical process for many municipalities and utility providers.
Our client and colleagues at Walden Environmental developed a guide for utility valuation and strategies for maximizing that value.
The Need for Utility Valuations
Cities, towns, villages and utilities tasked with building, buying or selling an asset for their drinking water, sanitary sewer or other utility system may realize that they have no references for comparison when it comes to determining a fair market value to assets.
Utility Valuation Services
Utility valuation is a very specific offering and an important one. It can make or break a sale, either in attracting buyers or in passing regulatory scrutiny. These aspects are only the beginning of the benefits an updated and accurate utility valuation can provide. Often the process of assigning value to utility assets uncovers forgotten or unlisted assets, making the utility more attractive, and investment decisions more strategic.
Few companies are involved or experienced in this niche type of work and, consequently, few understand the evolving regulatory environment that impacts it. This makes it all the more important to work with an experienced consultant. However, gaining an understanding of the process as well as what to expect is the first step toward seeing a utility effort achieve the greatest possible value for their constituents, residents and rate payers.
