October 29, 2014, 07:42 AM

BDO Consulting announced the growth of its Valuation & Business Analytics practice with the addition of Jason Zeman as a director in the Boston office. Zeman brings more than 15 years of financial advisory and consulting experience in business valuation, investment management and transaction advisory services, working with clients from start-up technology and life science ventures to large multinational conglomerates. He performs valuations for mergers and acquisitions, financial reporting, tax planning and compliance, employee stock ownership plans, corporate finance and litigation, and dispute advisory matters.

“Jason’s extensive business valuation experience and background as an equity analyst enhance our analytical service offerings, allowing our clients to better assess risk and make informed business decisions,” said Carl W. Pergola, Executive Director of BDO Consulting.

“Experienced in helping companies at all stages meet their growth and capital-raising objectives, Jason’s range of valuation experience, in everything from acquisition targets to equity compensation, make him a welcome addition to the practice,” said Anthony Alfonso, Senior Managing Director and Valuation & Business Analytics Practice Leader.

“I was drawn to BDO’s platform as a national accounting firm with a depth of strong technical resources and an extensive global network,” said Mr. Zeman. “Understanding the dynamic nature of international valuation standards today, these capabilities and the firm’s reputation for exceptional client service are critical for serving the needs of my clients.”

Zeman provides valuation services related to business enterprises, equity and debt securities, intangible assets and complex derivative securities, in addition to performing due diligence and other financial analyses. His transaction advisory experience includes valuing acquisition targets, providing fairness opinions, accretion/dilution analyses, and transaction pricing and negotiation support. In connection with financial reporting matters, he assists clients with purchase price allocations, impairment testing, valuation of stock-based compensation and derivative and fixed income instruments. On tax matters, he is experienced in valuations involving gift and estate planning, equity securities, carve-outs, restructurings, intellectual property transfers and conversions.

Prior to joining BDO, Zeman held positions in the national valuation practices of McGladrey, Duff & Phelps and PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he served middle market and development stage companies, private equity firms and investment advisors. He was also a buy-side equity analyst with OppenheimerFunds and Sun Capital Advisers, covering small and mid-cap stocks across numerous industry sectors.
