The Power of Information
In an age when rapid access to reliable market
information often defines a firm’s ability to make
timely, strategic decisions, DVS gives clients a
competitive advantage. The key: the
relationship between DVS and DoveBid, the
world’s leading auctioneer of capital assets.
This relationship delivers unparalleled access
to detailed information about the daily
disposition of business assets throughout the

DVS’ proprietary data management network                                                 authority
facilitates instant access to extensive
information, including market, liquidation, and
auction transactions; industry statistics; library
and online resources; and industry contacts.
These advanced tools are used daily to ensure
that value conclusions are thoroughly
researched,      comprehensively       analyzed,
accurately      estimated,     and      properly

Combined with other industry information, DVS’ extensive data resources keep clients closely attuned to the
marketplace, revealing the important subtleties that aid in recognizing strategic market opportunities. This
translates to real-world dependability by delivering answers to clients that have real-world application.

When assets must be sold, the exit strategies recommended by DVS mirror those executed by DoveBid in
everyday practice, and the cost-of-sale estimates are based on fact, not theory. The ability to draw on this
practical experience keeps clients well informed and able to assess risk with confidence.

                                                                                          DoveBid Valuation Services   6
Machinery – The Key to Production
A machine is more than a production tool—it’s
a vital link in the manufacturing process and an
essential contributor to a company’s
productivity and profitability. Clients rely on
DVS for detailed evaluations of machinery, with
the conclusions often becoming the support                                           productivity
and basis for asset-secured loans, book and tax
planning, insurance coverage, and many other
types of asset studies.

DVS has the expertise to evaluate a wide array
of machinery in more than 80 industry
segments—from metalworking to circuit board
manufacturing to paper mills to textile mills. This
comprehensive expertise guarantees clients
ultimate flexibility when scheduling complex
projects and ensures staffing by professionals
with in-depth industry experience.

On-site inspections are thorough, asset
descriptions are complete, and reporting is
solid, with every evaluation meeting or exceeding strict professional and regulatory standards. Major assets
are digitally photographed to record their condition and the characteristics of the manufacturing operation.
Certain installations are further documented while in operation to record the efficiency of the production
process. These efforts all help DVS deliver accurate conclusions and a work product that has many direct and
indirect benefits to the client.

                                                                                          DoveBid Valuation Services   7
Inventory – The Vital Resource
Inventory is the lifeblood of a company. The
effective management of this resource often
means the difference between profit and loss,
growth and survival. An important and dynamic
strength of DVS is the firm’s ability to evaluate
inventory that is part of a complex
manufacturing operation, as well as value
finished goods that are marketed through
wholesale and retail distribution. Our advice
helps clients distinguish the value of individual
product lines, enhance profitability by
increasing efficiency, and maintain appropriate
stock levels during periods of growth or
contraction. Lower-of-cost or market studies
performed by DVS contrast internal
performance with the competitive marketplace,
while build-out analyses help improve inventory
balance and the timeliness of shipments.

Recognizing that every inventory is a unique
extension of the business itself, DVS takes
great care to understand the factors that make
it distinct.

                                                                    DoveBid Valuation Services   8

investigation and comprehensive analysis.

standards and takes into account the use that
