Certified Appraisals

Harry Davis & Company specializes in appraising dairy, beverage, food and pharmaceutical assets for the financial community. Since 1955, our appraisals have given banks and financial institutions the security to lend on their clients assets and also understand what their exit strategy would look like if they needed to liquidate. Additionally, Harry Davis & Company directly assists both large and small companies in gaining an accurate market valuation of their capital assets. We have worked with major financial institutions, private equity groups, leading corporations, attorneys, accountants, executives and government agencies.


Our expertise in the field comes from our direct experience in purchasing and selling both entire facilities and their assets on a fair market value, orderly liquidation value and forced liquidation value basis and our appraisal values are based on, among other criteria, our 56 years of historical transactions in the dairy, beverage, food, and pharmaceutical industries.

Harry Davis & Company appraisals help companies and financial partners gain insight into situations involving:

· Asset-based lending and procurement of financing

· Purchase price allocation

· Lease end negotiations

· Insurance values, replacement costs and loss settlement

· Mergers and acquisitions

· Litigation

· Risk management

Harry Davis & Company‘s appraisers are accomplished and credentialed professionals with memberships and certifications from the American Society of Appraisers (Machinery And Technical Specialties) and the Equipment Appraisers Association of North America.  All of our appraisals are compliant with the Uniform Standard of Principal Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as promulgated by the Appraisal Standards Board of The Appraisal Foundation.


Uniform Commercial Code Filing


Upon completion of any physical appraisal, we can provide an Exhibit A with a detailed equipment listing that can be filed with your UCC1 so there is no question what is either minimally or maximally included in your lien.


As a preferred and approved appraiser for several major financial institutions, we have worked in the market and evaluated its fluctuations. Let us put our experience and expertise to work for you.
