Valuations and Appraisals

Praxi Valuations and Appraisals operates in the domain of asset valuation and optimisation, and is organised into four Business Units: Praxi Industrial, Praxi Real Estate, Praxi Loan Valuations and Praxi Business Valuations. The Division boasts thousands of clients, including companies in the industry, banking and insurance and real estate sectors, as well as auditing firms, public bodies and courts.


Praxi Industrial

Praxi Industrial provides appraisal and management consulting services regarding capital goods (buildings, plant, equipment, intangibles, etc.) for manufacturing groups, service companies, multi-utility companies and public bodies.

The huge range of expertise Praxi Industrial has to offer allows us to draft and develop complex projects for a variety of purposes: financial statements, insurance cover, support for transactions, implementation of advanced asset management systems, funding, etc.

Our experience covers all the main manufacturing and tertiary sectors, including both large companies operating worldwide and SMEs.

PRAXI’s consulting approach guarantees solutions tailored to each client’s needs, established and developed using the highly professional, independent, objective approach that is our hallmark.


Praxi Real Estate: not simply numbers, but values

Praxi Real Estate offers a full range of consulting and support services for investors, lenders and real estate owners.

Our practical, client-oriented approach is based on our extensive knowledge of national and local markets and the sound professional skills of our experts.

PRAXI is not bound by links with any industrial and financial groups and entities. This allows us to be entirely objective and independent in our professional judgement.

Praxi Real Estate operates in compliance with the ethical and professional principles of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, applying its Red Book valuation standards.

Our experience comprises all sizes and types of property (tertiary, commercial, residential, industrial, hospitality, etc.), development areas and projects and properties for reconversion.


Loan Valuations

PRAXI’s integrated system supports the real estate sector throughout the financing process, handling all the aspects involved in establishing the value of properties used as collateral, both for obtaining new loans/leasing operations and for real estate securities already in the client’s portfolio.

Thanks to our highly specialised professionals and our sophisticated flow management system, we are able to deal with a full range of real estate loans, from major development operations and large investments to the granting of mortgages to retail clients, first-time home buyers or minor building works.

For the proper application of banking regulations, both international (Basel Accords) and Italian (Italian Banking Association - ABI Guidelines for the Valuation of Real Estate Properties used as Loan Guarantees), an independent appraiser is vital for banks, objectively offering them a competitive edge, as well as guaranteeing borrowers (both businesses and families) a clear, objective opinion.

Thanks to our long-established reputation for independent, quality performance, PRAXI is called upon to handle operations that are particularly tricky in terms of importance, the individuals concerned and the complexity of the scenarios involved.

Our widespread presence throughout the country, with a solid network of qualified professional appraisers working locally, makes PRAXI a one-stop-shop all over Italy for technical assistance and appraisals to support loan valuations:

  • valuation of properties (residential, tertiary, commercial, etc.) offered as collateral for mortgage loans
  • valuation and due diligence on leased properties
  • valuation of NPLs (Non-Performing Loans), both upon acquisition of the credit portfolio and to support strategies for optimisation and divestiture developed by specialised servicers.


Business Valuations

Praxi Valuations and Appraisals assists companies and entities in determining the value of any specific activity or economic entity (company, company division, goodwill, know-how, brand, etc.) that can come under the general definition of business.

Business Valuation is used by market operators to determine the trading price of a business, to establish the value of the majority or minority shares held by a partner, to settle disputes and controversies regarding the start-up, sale or conversion of business activities.

Business Valuation regards taxation and financial statements, especially in the event of extraordinary transactions (acquisitions, sales, mergers and incorporation) and the application of regulations governing amortisation/depreciation and the revaluation of assets.

Here again, thanks to the variety of expertise on the entirely independent PRAXI team, which includes chartered accountants and experts in safeguarding intellectual property, clients can rest assured of an accurate, objective, highly professional valuation, based on the best practices on the market.
