|USE OF OUTSIDE EXPERTISE
As a part of the purchase process, many buyers of card portfolios
bring in outside expertise to provide a second opinion valuation.
This, to confirm their own due diligence and market valuation assessment.
Likewise, sellers will often bring in someone to provide their Board
with an opinion of fairness on the bids being received. In both
cases, a principal chooses to get the best advice possible, prior
to closing a deal.
