We carry out independent valuations of lime plants, cement plants, and for the coal and industrial minerals processing facilities as required for:

    • Financing / collateral.
    • Taxation.
    • Accounting for plant depreciation purposes.
    • Mergers and acquisitions.
    • Insurance coverage.

PEC Consulting is experienced in utilizing several appraisal methods depending on the need of our clients, such as valuations based on:

    • Replacement cost approach.
    • Present value of discounted cash flows.
    • An EBITDA multiple for the industry.
    • Comparable recent acquisitions.

The valuation must take into consideration market growth and stability, raw materials reserves for the predicted life of the facility, and substantial capital investments which may be required due to upcoming environmental or other factors external to the facility.

We are knowledgeable in the industries that we serve and have performed many valuations for mergers and acquisitions, financing, insurance and accounting depreciation purposes. Over the course of the last five years, we have carried out several valuations of cement plants which included an overview of their operating conditions and valuation of assets. Some valuations were required by financial institutions to support the expansion of current cement plants or for the implementation of Greenfield cement manufacturing facilities. Others included the valuation of cement plants for accounting and insurance purposes.
