Mark Lee, CFA, and Gilbert E. Matthews, CFA

A fairness opinion is a letter, prepared by a knowledgeable financial advisory firm (generally an investment banking firm or an entity specializing in valuations), that states whether or not a transaction—or the consideration or financial terms of a transaction—is fair. Fairness is assessed from a financial point of view, to one or more parties as of a specific date, based on certain assumptions, limitations, and procedures.
